How do I prevent profile editing from changing author url?

    I want the author to be able to change their personal URL in the WP backend. But every time their buddypress profile changes, it changes the Website field in WP.

    Is there a logical reason for doing this? If not, where do I modify this?

  • Make another profile entry for URL. BuddyPress is acting as it should and taking over that field for profile fun :)

    The problem is, I want “Home” for the logged in user to be their personal chosen blog page, instead of the main blog. I don’t know how to do this except to call the url with a wordpress php function.

    I don’t see how Buddypress is using this field. When I change it to a different url in the backend, Buddypress member links still take me to their profile. Or, is it used in some other way?

    If you click on your name here in the forums, you get taken to your BuddyPress profile page, instead of your personal website. That feature is by design and that’s what I mean when I say BuddyPress sets your account’s website as your BuddyPress profile.

    That’s not the same as my ‘home’, but I suppose you could muck about with the BuddyPress files to change the default website to be something else. I’m not sure how that would work, as all it would do would be to take you to my blog when you click on my name, vs my profile. Is that what you want?

    Yes, I want to go to the blog. I think I’ve figured out a work-around.
