wp and bp profile syncing–works only sporadically
I’m running mu2.8.6/bp1.1.3, and the problem I’m having is that most of the time, when my students register on the site and complete the BP profile, that information is not synced with the WP profile. The BP profile will show the full name, but when I go to the WP profile on the backend, I see only the username and nickname fields are populated, and the others are blank; the display name shows the username.
So, when that student comments on a post, her username is shown, and there’s no link back to her profile. However, a few students register (for instance, one did just a few minutes ago) and all their information is fully synced–the WP profile shows username, first name, last name, the display name shows first and last, and the URL is the BP profile.
I have not been able to determine what, if anything, these few exceptions do differently to have their profiles sync. I’m assuming that these exceptions are what is supposed to be the rule when profile syncing is working correctly.
Any ideas on what I can do to get this working correctly all the time?
