Hmm, I’m thinking the only way to solve this might be to look at how the create users page on the wp-admin works and see if I can’t jigger that to a normal-type page. But I”m not quite sure where to begin with that.
That was perfect! It worked like a charm… I think I wasn’t adding an action to filter. I got the two confused… filters… actions… still wrapping my head around this. It doesn’t help that buddypress is surprisingly undocumented. I’m glad that there are superheroes like you around to save the day!
What it looks like is that the bp_dtheme_ajax_querystring should take a variable $query_string, which it grabs from the cookies and applys a filter to the bp_ajax_querystring. Every time I try to create a function that ACTUALLY filters it with an actual $query_string, it doesn’t work. I’ve printed out the variable and as far as I can tell, my query string is identically structured to the one the function automatically creates, but for some reason it won’t take an “include” or even “exclude” argument.
