Multiple Profiles on BuddyPress

    Hi everyone. I just installed BuddyPress 1.5.6 on WordPress 3.4.

    I am trying to create a social site for baseball players. The only hump that I have not been able to figure out is if I can create multiple profiles.

    My dilemma is that though everyone would have the same fields (name, college, age, place of birth, etc.), they would have ‘specialized fields’ as well.

    For example, if I’m a pitcher, my fields would be different from everyone else. If I bat, I’d have different fields as well. If I’m a manager, I would have different fields as well.
    Here are some samples from ESPN, Batting Stats are different from Fielding Stats, and Pitching Stats
    Batting Stats – http://espn.go.com/mlb/stats/batting/_/year/2012/seasontype/2
    Pitching Stats – http://espn.go.com/mlb/stats/pitching/_/year/2012/seasontype/2
    Fielding Stats – http://espn.go.com/mlb/stats/fielding/_/year/2012/seasontype/2

    I am also looking for a plugin(?) where a user can input their own stats.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    To build this kind of feature, you need to be a PHP developer:

    • You’d add new profile field groups for each type of stat (or if the stats are too complex for profile fields – a custom component to handle them).
    • You’d then assign a role to each member based on whether they are a batter, pitcher or fielder – ideally implemented using the underlying WordPress user roles.
    • Finally, you’d implement conditional logic in your templates to display appropriate profile field groups based on the member’s role.

    Thanks Roger. I kinda knew that was my end-solution but was hoping that there was some sort of plugin instead of actually coding the whole thing :)

    Thanks again. Appreciate the help.

    Hi @jekofalltrades
    There is a plugin which meets your requirements exactly, if you not want to code by yourself, but it is paid plugin tho,
