I have a single WP 2.9.2 using the Atahualpa 3.4.6 template and BP 1.2.3 install and would like to gain a better understanding of how profile syncing is supposed to work.
First I noticed that members can log in, add a local avatar & it is used in the activity stream but not when they comment on a post. If they use gravatar they are fine.
Next I had previously used a plugin, which allowed users to add additional profile information. I cannot seem to figure out how to smoothly & automatically move that information into the BP extended profile.
Or how to take information from the extended profile form and use it within a post contributed by the member to create an “about the author” style box?.
Lastly, WP creates an author page, which lists posts contributed on a member by member basis. This is another thing I can’t seem to figure out how to synch to BP profile. New posts are added to the member’s activity stream but not the member profile.
