It’s not clear what you mean by ‘to be requested’.
Groups are accessed from the Groups page, not the Registration page.

You think of everything. Thank you SO much Varun! :-))
How do you know all these things?!
Thank you so much mercime. 🙂
Yes. Other than matching field slugs, it’s not made explicit how to match imported metadata to xProfile fields. (Guesswork. Trial and error.)
Perfect. Thanks Varun. Indeed, core WP fields need not be duplicated by BP.
mercime thank you so! much. IT WORKED! :-))
Just need to find a way to make the font size in activity posts one size smaller though.
Not really sure what the difference between BuddyPress Groups with Activity boards and bbPress – from what I’ve read they both seem to be methods to do the same thing and BP Groups uses bbPress for its own fora. Is there a key difference folks?
Thanks again mercime.
Found the solution, to post, you have to click on the ‘Activity’ link under the Group’s name.
Just getting to grips with terminology. The issue is a catch-22:
I have a CSV file of data to import to new, Extended Profile field names in WP. I know the Extended Profile Field LABELS (e.g. ‘Favourite Colour’), but I cannot see the Extended Profile Field NAMES (e.g.
favourite_colour). I need to see the names, so that I can type these into the appropriate column headings of the CSV file, so that data gets directed to the right WP Extended Profile fields on import.
The plugin I’m using, show field LABELS but not field NAMES.
I have tried using a plugin that shows field names, but it does not ‘see’ the Extended Profile field names made in another plugin.
I’m aware that if I import the CSV file, then the fields might automatically be made in WP on upload. However, I want the field data to go the field categories I have already made.
Can you advise? Thank you for your help. Much appreciated.
Sorry, ‘shortcode’ is not the correct term. WP uses table column headers, e.g. ‘user_name’. How can one see a list of those (contracted) column header names for made Extended Profile Fields?
Hi iamthewebb, Thanks for your lightning-quick response.
Doh, just found the solution: extended profile information is shown in Users>Your Profile>Extended Profile
…I was missing the tab at the end.
Does anyone know how I can find the ‘short code’ names for the extended profile fields, e.g. <favourite_colour> for ‘Favourite Colour’?
