    Running.
    Latest WordPress
    Latest BuddyPress
    Latest bbPress
    Latest S2member Pro

    So What Im attempting to do is:
    allow a guest to resister, as a free user, and fill out a profile questionair. Here is the optimum procedure.

    1. Click on free registration, Subscriber Level.
    2. Brings me to BuddyPress Registration Page.
    3. Fill Out Form with Basic Info.
    4. User gets activation email
    5. User Activates via email link.
    6. User gets brought to webpage to confirm and logs on.
    7. User then gets redirected to Advanced Profile Options.
    8. User completes it and fills out all available info, updates it.
    9. Done, or upgrades to Paid Membership via S2member.

    Here’s the Questions.
    1. Can I control what fields are visible during registration?
    2. Can I control when certain Profile fields are displayed in the Profile Section?
    3. Can I control when certain Profile Group Fields are displayed?

    Sorry for the Newb questions, cause yes i’m a Newb. Currently self teaching PHP and SQL.

    Let me know what you guys think.

    1. Can I control what fields are visible during registration?
    By default everything within the ‘base’ profile group is shown in the registration field, you can mess around with the stuff within the registration template, removing the call to the base group and then adding the required fields in manually… but your better off just moving things you don’t want on the register page into other groups.

    2. Can I control when certain Profile fields are displayed in the Profile Section?
    Sure can. http://codex.buddypress.org/developer-docs/custom-buddypress-loops/the-profile-data-loop-bp_has_profile/
    3. Can I control when certain Profile Group Fields are displayed?
    See codex link above.The profile data loop includes two loops, one for the fields and another one for the field groups.
