Where is the ‘field id’ so I can deactivate it?

    In order to “Enter the field ID of any field that you want to appear as plain, non-clickable text.” I need to know how to find the ‘field id’.
    It does not seem to be the name or number of the field I create in the xtended profiles interface and I cant find it by viewing the page surce code…
    Please explain where to find it.

    Also – is there some way to simply turn off the auto linking within the extended profile fields? That would be much better for me than the way everything becomes a link at the moment.

    Well at least I figured out that once this plugin is installed
    I can tell members that if they are getting auto links they dont want
    they can ad [ ] in their posts and it will do the trick.
    Bit messy but its a beginning…

    you can turn them off en masse by removing the appropriate filter – I can’t remember which off the top of my head.

    turning them all off would be okay but better would be to use the Custom Profile Filters for BuddyPress plugin.
    To do that I just need to know how to find the field ids of the extended profile fieds Ive created.
    Would be sort of good to explain in the plugin documentation for newbs like me as its an essential step in an otherwise straight forward process…

    Try the backend profile edit screen if you hover fields it will show you the ids in the links.

    Documentation is always nice but we can’t demand it as it were we’re all newbs to one extent or another and there are times when we just have to struggle and work things out.

    @oneearth – you asked if there was anyway to turn them all off: “Also – is there some way to simply turn off the auto linking within the extended profile fields? “
