Thanks @shanebp. I had this already written: <?php echo do_shortcode(‘[userpro template=view]’); ?>, but now im just not understanding where to put it, and if im missing something else as far as the “filter” goes. I first attempted to add <?php echo do_shortcode(‘[userpro template=view]’); ?> to the member-header.php file, somewhere right above this: <?php
* If you’d like to show specific profile fields here use:
* bp_member_profile_data( ‘field=About Me’ ); — Pass the name of the field
do_action( ‘bp_profile_header_meta’ );
but that didnt work. so then i did some more research and thats where i read that BP doesnt parse shortcodes and i would have to either make a function and add a filter that would allow shortcodes, or add a filter to an already exsisting function (which i was assuming was the bp_profile_header_meta’) that would allow shortcodes. Well, then of course being a newbie, i got lost looking at all of the codex stuff regarding functions parameters and return values, it all kind of went over my head, and couldnt figure out where to start anymore so i gave up. I dont have the means to hire a developer at this point, so ill just have to keep doing research until i figure out this filter function shortcode stuff, lol. Anyway, if you have any other ideas or ways i might be able to figure this out im all ears, otherwise, i genuinely appreciate your help. It’s hard to come across developers that are ok with sharing knowledge and help us newbies, so i thank you
I see. I apologize, I am fairly new to this forum thing. Let’s try this again…Hi everyone, I am currently trying to create a buddypress network, where members can either join for free, or receive more options by joining a paid membership program. The free members are able to post whatever they choose, and receive achievements/badges for doing so. The problem i have is, my wordpress theme is centered around minisites that are all created using custom post types. Also, the custom post types allow me create beautiful reviews, award badges and ratings, but only on my wp-back end. I am relatively new at coding, and this framework is definitely a template (industrial themes-flavor to be exact.) I would like to find a way to basically add the custom post capability (hopefully enough to match at least some of the functionality that i see on the backend) to the front user end of buddypress. That way, members can write reviews and award ratings/badges to the products they like, but not have to log into my backend. I know this might seem far-fetched, and Im sure there is a lot of work to make happen. However, I would at least like to try and start somewhere. So, on that note, if anyone has any idea,solution,experience with buddypress and custom post types, i would love to hear any insight, and would greatly appreciate any help. Without giving away all of the details, my goal is to create a network where users can basically buy/sell/share/create custom post type articles/products and be rewarded for doing tasks/events. Also, I would like to create an affiliate network within the model, where members that would like to have more than just a fun experience, be able to make a profit off of writing/sharing/click throughs, etc. So, finally, if I can’t find the help i need to slowly create this model myself, I am also willing to hear out anyone that might be interested in developing this network. I am sure that last statement was probably supposed to be placed somewhere else and not here, but I figured Id chance it in hopes to find anyone willing to help. Thank you for your time everyone, and may you all have a blessed wordpress/buddypress operating system.
