    Hi landshark.

    Are you sure you have mirrored the xprofile field as per the plugin instructions? Aslo if you are using wordpress multisigh, there is a issue I havnt got around to looking at yet.

    As I understand the mirror process:

    I created a profile field (field type – text box), named it “Twitter” Went into the settings for the plugin and where it says “Mirror Profile Field Title” I copied and pasted the name of the profile field, “Twitter” and saved.

    This is what I have done.

    I am not using multisite Just buddypress installed on a regular wordpress site.

    Ahhh, ok I just tested something.

    I’m not using the default buddypress theme. So I activated the default theme and it appears to work, so that is telling me it must be a theme problem.

    How do I modify my theme to fix the problem? Is there a piece of code I can paste in?

    Yes you can use “

    Place it in your members-header.php or similar dependent on the theme you are using.

    The position where the twitter button is called in the bp-default theme is ‘bp_before_member_header_meta’, though from what you have told me, your theme doesn’t use the hook.

    Then just look for something like `

    <a href="”>

    `

    and place it just below.

    Enjoy

    Great think I got it. I’ll let the theme designer know as well. Thanks for your help!

    no problem, thanks for the feedback and support

    Ps: if the theme designer doesnt feel the need to include the hook, its best to check that the function exists when ‘hard coding’ it into your theme, if the plugin is disabled for what ever reason ( update/deactivated.. ), it might give you a nasty error which you don’t want on a live site.

    use:
    `<?php if (function_exists('show_twittercj_in_header')) {
    show_twittercj_in_header();
    } ?>`
