Turn Bp in a complete Social Network

  • Hello everybody,

    I need some informations about Buddypress profile fields.

    I’d like to add some fields as: “User’s Genders” (Male or Female) “user’s locations” and “user’s age”

    I know how to put this fields in “registration form” but I need to allow my users to search for other members using these fields.

    someone could suggest me how to solve this problem?

    I would like users could write their own instant messenger address, but it must be showed to their friends only.

    is this possible?

    Thank you

    Pigi

    Privacy is an emerging trend in Buddypress. Jeff Sayre creates the best known Buddypress plugin but hasn’t released yet: http://jeffsayre.com/2009/12/05/buddypress-privacy-component-released/comment-page-1/#comment-491 He suggests you look at the roadmap or follow him on Twitter to follow updates.

    the most important BP 1.3 features:

    - Privacy Features

    - X-Profile Fields

    - User-Blogs-Posts from Front-end

    Hope to see those features as being the winners in the expected BP 1.3 feature-poll.

    Any guestimates on when when 1.3 will come out? 1.2.1 is on its way soon.

    thanks for the answers.

    What About the “advanced search” through the fields profile?

    I’m not sure. Sounds like it would benefit the overall BP community (thought it may be viewed as something for a plugin). You could create a ticket to suggest it to the developers: http://trac.buddypress.org/

    Advanced Search for X-Profile-Fields was on the BP-Roadmap for 1.2, same as “Privacy-Features” and “User-Blogs-Posts from Front-end”. However those 3 features did not make it into BP1.2

    I think most of the requested and discussed features on this Forum are Plugin-territory, but the mentioned 3 features should definitely be within Core and are essential to run a Social-Network-website:

    - Privacy Features

    - Advanced Search & X-Profile Fields

    - User-Blogs-Posts from Front-end

    I would even say:

    STOP any further feature-polls for BP 1.3 and focus on above mentioned 3 features ONLY.

    - X-Profile Fields.

    Surely you can add these at the registration phase – just make them “not required” and then users can fill them in later – so the registraion isn’t 10 hours long
