How to create members directory searchable by xprofile field
I’m new to buddypress, and I can’t find a tutorial on how to customize the way members are displayed. I want a directory where members can be sorted by an extended profile field, namely a particular skill.
My members are artists, so visitors to the site should be able to find them by genre i.e. painting. Preferably, I’d like visitors to be able to search by keyword, but also click on links to a predefined list of genres, to show all members in that category.
Sometimes, artists specialize in more than one genre i.e. painter, sculptor. – so I’m thinking of creating up to 3 fields, all dropdowns containing the same list of genres. Is there anyway to:
1: search only specific fields in a keyword search?
2: create links that will generate results for each genre
3: combine 1 and 2 on the buddypress members page
Thank You for helping.
