    Hi

    I’m looking at the theme Sweet Date from Themeforest, and have a few questions regarding the profile page that is controlled by BuddyPress as i understand it.

    Is there an easy way to make more sections with questions for the members to answer to get at more fulfilling profile, like this

    ?

    And what about some question that are answered by ticking off boxes, and also make them searchable, like vegetarian, vegan, smoking a.s.o. ?

    The next thing, i’m not sure whether it is controlled by PaidMembershipsPro or BuddyPress, but i need 4 membership plans, where the 1st is free, can’t interact, only read/view, the 2nd Bronze can only interact with one member at a time, 3rd Silver can interact with all paying members, 4th Gold can interact with all paying + non-paying members ?

    And last, is it possible to have some sort of validation of a profile based upon how much the members has answered to the questions, like 36%, 57%, 79% a.s.o., and then give them some sort of a quality stamp based on that ?

    All the best
    Carsten

    s2 member works well not sure about your completion based levels probably need some custom code for anything like that.

    @boblebad,

    What you trying to create is a bit interesting and it might take about 3 or 4 plugins to manage fully… So follow the steps below and you’re well on your way:

    Foremost, Install this plugin:

    http://wordpress.org/plugins/buddypress-xprofile-custom-fields-type/

    (NB: That is for the More Profile Fields Option)

    Step 2:
    Install this plugin to achieve the “ticking off boxes, and also make them searchable, like vegetarian, vegan, smoking a.s.o. ?” that you asked:

    http://wordpress.org/plugins/bp-better-directories/

    (Although the plugin is a little old, the author is a BuddyPress core developer – see if you can work something out with him)

    Step 3:
    The 4 Membership Plans Stuff is best handled by the free version of the plugin below,

    http://wordpress.org/plugins/s2member/

    Step 4:
    About the Profiles Completion Meter (35% Completed and so forth, but without the quality stamp!)

    http://wordpress.org/plugins/buddypress-profile-progression/

    The quality stamp part is best worked out with the developer of Sweet Date. Just request custom development services from him and you’re good to go.

    Thank you you answers, especially you tolusage :)

    I’ve got a few question.

    Is buddypress-xprofile-custom-fields-type necessary, under /users/profile fields in the Dashboard, it is possible to add more fields?

    Can’t the membership plans be done with PaidMembershipsPro, i have for an earlier project bin looking at s2members, and found it complicated to configure, so many settings ?

    I’ll have a look at bp-better-directories and buddypress-profile-progression :)

    Thanks again :)

    All the best

    One last thing.

    How do it get hold on the developer ?

    All the best
    Carsten

    EDIT: Found his email on his site :)

    EDIT 2: The plugin gives an error:
    “Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /***/fredidalen.dk/wp-content/plugins/bp-better-directories/includes/admin.php on line 42″

    it sounds like you have a lot of very specific implementation questions it might make sense to hire someone to help you out. hard for any volunteer to get that involved.

    Hi @ubernaut

    The question is, is there any plugin that can do these things, cause if, then i don’t need to hire anyone ;-)

    idk like i said your questions are pretty situation specific so to expect anyone to get more involved you may want to consider paying for help.

    Hi @ubernaut

    You’re not listening to me, i said why should i pay someone to do something for me, if there’s a plugin that can do it out of the box ?

    And i actually are capable of tweeking some my self, but i’m new to BuddyPress and i don’t know what plugins there is, and that’s what i’m trying to find out – so when that’s in place, then we can go back to talking about maybe hiring someone if it is something that i can’t tweek my self, is that okay with you ?

    All the best

    I’m just trying to help man i tried to share what information i had paying someone to answer the questions you cannot was just a suggestion based on what i would do.

    I appreciate that :)

    Thank you.

    I’ve bin searching a little around, and found that by adding new user roles, and by making the forum “read only”, that’ll clear one of the things i need done.

    The adding of more fields can be done from the settings /user/profile fields.

    From there the checkboxes is possible too, i just right now don’t know if they are searchable, but i’ll figure that out.

    The progression thing i think i got cleared too, i might need to mix something from another plugin to get the style match what i want.

    The only thing left is the restriction of conversations between the membership plans.

    All the best
    Carsten
