Links within "about me" section

    I think I noticed this before and never bothered to say anything because it doesn’t actually happen in the profiles on my BuddyPress install. And so I don’t quite know where I should post this. (Sorry.)

    Here on the profile page depending on how you write your “about me” section random links show up, e.g., http://buddypress.org/community/members/ceo/profile/

    If it was only linking say “cupcake decorating” I would find that awesome, but it starts taking search terms from my dog’s name. (I assume because of the comma?)

    Obviously, this is not a life-and-death kind of issue, but it’s an odd quirk that I thought I’d bring up (and searching quickly I didn’t see a previous mention).

    Yep, it’s one of the most useless things in BuddyPress.

    You can get rid of those links by adding the following to your bp-custom.php file:

     

    function remove_xprofile_links() {

    remove_filter( ‘bp_get_the_profile_field_value’, ‘xprofile_filter_link_profile_data’, 9, 2 );

    }

    add_action( ‘bp_init’, ‘remove_xprofile_links’ );
