How to customize profiles, and create profiles specific to User Roles.
Hello everyone! I know this has been a topic in the past, but I was hoping for a more complete answer to this issue. I know there are many people who would benefit from a viable solution to this.
First off, I am using WordPress 3.9.2, and Buddypress 2.0.2.
The main purpose of this post is to try and figure out how to create multiple profiles (2 or more) with completely different profile fields, and to associate each profile to a different user type/user role.
Example: I created to custom user roles … Writer and Publisher. We have Anthony, the writer … and we have Jason, the publisher. When you click on Anthony’s profile, you will see an author bio, other writers that influenced Anthony’s work, favorite genres, etc … When you click on Jason’s profile, you’ll see the publishing company that Jaosn works for, maybe a company about section, if it is a large publishing house … how many employees, how many writers are published, etc…
What I am looking for is one of a variety of things… I will, of course, be thrilled if one of you has a full code snippet/snippets that does what I am looking for. I will also be appreciative for an explanation of what Buddypress files need to be edited to achieve this. Really, anything that gets me closer to a solution, as I am currently doing this for a client’s website, and after I finish this piece of functionality, we will almost be finished!
Thank you so much for reading this, and thank you in advance to all of those willing to help me achieve this goal.
Ask me any questions you may have that will help clarify things.
