“More Fields” box as a buddypress profile field?

  • Hi,

    Im trying to do something which I thought would be a relatively simple task but seems to be impossible without alot of custom coding.

    I am using the “More fields” plugin to add some checkboxes to a post. These checkboxes will allow a post to be associated with genre of book.

    I am also using buddypress. When a user registers I want to be able to give the user the option to choose which book genres they are most interested in, and then save it into their profile info. These genres obviously have to be the same as the genres which i am tagging my posts as (the custom field ive created in more fields).

    Can anyone think of a way I can allow users to choose which genres (multiple checkboxes) they are interested in. I could of course create a profile field containing the book genres in the “profile field setup”, but then they wouldnt be the same as the checkboxes im using to “tag” posts with and therefore id be maintaining two sets of data which are in no way linked and would be useless for reporting purposes.

    Thanks for any help, it would be much appreciated.
