    hello and thanks for your reply but i allready tried that widget :(problem is i think that my wp installation is not network (but i have registrations on for authors, everybody write in the same site) so the widget cannot understand who is the author of the post. but this widget works perfectly: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/author-profile/ . I just want to replace the line that pulls info from the wp’s core “about me” field with the one from my bp’s “about me” field!! someone help plz .

    cause i’m gonna totally disable the wp’s default “members/your profile” tab and everything should be filled through bp’s profile, better that way.

    You’re on single WP with BP installed so that BP Profile widget won’t work for you, I should have asked that sooner. In any case, since you have installed BP, you can easily add the fields you want your users to fill in via dashboard > BuddyPress > Profile Field Setup.

    yes i know but how am i gonna send this fields to a normal wp’s widget!? all the day i am trying things, the closest i got was to show the name of the last field i created in BP with this `echo bp_get_the_profile_field_name(); ` …so to show the contents of a field (and with charlimit) it can’t be that difficult .. so please someone help!

    i even was able to display a field description with `bp_get_the_profile_field_description` but i still cannot pull the info that every author posted in that field. of course i call this when i am inside the page with the post of the author. Basically what this plugin do (http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/author-profile/) but pull the info from a field in bp’s profile is what i need!!

    please somebody help me on this… i love buddy and wordpress but i don’t have the time now to study again from the beggining the multisite installation. there will be more questions, i made a local installation so i need for sure time on mu site and time now is a big issue. For now please somebody point me on this “simple” thing i ask: maybe it would be more easy to do the opposite? let’s say that i want to user to fill the wp’s fields Yahoo,IM.msn but into bp’s profile. Is this possible? I’m so confused plz help/ .

    still cannot figure this out. Can we please go 1 by 1? I have a single installation WP+BP and i have buddypress registration on, so everybody is becoming a member through BP. Let’s say that i want to create a simple widget “About me” and echo what the author’s filled in *this* profile field. The profile field would be called “About me
    .This will appear only in author’s posts. I say again my wordpress installation is not MU but it is multi authors write in the same blog. this plugin does exactly what i want, but it echos the WP’s core “About me” and i want to modify it with buddyopres’s field!

    with `bp_get_the_profile_field_edit_value()` it displays a field’s from the bp core but no matter the author it will allways display from member with #id 1 …i thought i did it and then i went to another author to realize that is wrong. How can it understand and update the author!? Do i need to copy and paste this fuction again? ( `bp_get_the_profile_field_edit_value()`) . Totally lost…
