Issue with syncing Buddypress profile fields and WordPress profile fields (user display name and suc
My WP is 3.3.1 and Buddypress is latest 1.5.4, I’m running a simple localhost installation
In BP profile fields there’s a field for “name” which I believe corresponds to WP login name… must be all lowercase and I assume can’t be changed (?)
I don’t see other fields such as… first name / last name / nickname and most importantly display name, actually I don’t see any other of the standard WP fields (anyway the others are not so important)
I might have messed up something while customising the BP profile fields/groups, on the other hand I don’t know how to allow users to select their first / last name and most importantly the display name
as a matter of fact, when a user updates his BP profile, since there’s no field for “display” name, his username becomes blank!! (it means if I try to get things as author name or get currentuser display name… I get nothing!)
disabling profile syncing of course can fix this (however I still have to re-enter manually name, family name, display name in wordpress backend)
is there any way to achieve a good synchronization using only BP profile fields?
also I would need this to support localisation
