How to Hook into the Primary Profile Field [Closed]

    @frank13

    There is a primary/required field on the BP User Profile input form (in our case called “Name”) which does not have a Field Description textbox that allows us to enter a brief desciption on what to enter in the box.

    Does anyone know of a hook to enable the abulity to add a Field Description to the primary element?

    I entered a Trac enhancement request, but in the meantime, I would like to be able to add a field description to help our members properly complete the form field.

    Thank you.

    That is strange.When you went to Dasboard/Users/Profile Fields and under Base(Primary) and clicked Add New Field it should have took to to where you can add a Field Title, and Field Description. Did you scroll to the bottom and click “Save?”

    Thanks @shawn38.

    I am running WP 3.4.1 and BP 1.5.6

    In my installation there is no `Profile Fields` in the Dashboard > Users navigation path.

    The manner in which I get to `Profile Fields` is Dashboard > Buddy Press > Profile Fields

    The page ends up being “Extended Profile Fields” and under the “Base (Primary)” tab and I click the Edit button for Name (Primary) (Required) there is no Field Description box like there is on all the other profile fields.

    Do you think I have a faulty or incomplete install going on here?

    Appreciate your help…

    Actually that is standard for buddypress 1.5.6. It does have the field description box in the name field in the latest and greatest version though! :-)

    So @shawn38 if I understand your comment back to me correctly — 1.5.6 does not provide the Field Description text box, but 1.6.* does?

    Side note: I read bad, bad things about 1.6 so I am avoiding upgrading at this time.

    @frank13 That is correct. I have 2 installs of BP 1.6.1 on my localhost and I have not had any issues but these are also clean installs.
