@boonebgorges Thank you so much!! I really appreciate your help and quick response.
Even if this doesn’t work for me, just to understand how better to debug in PHP (with wordpress) is AMAZING! (While I am not new to coding, I am new to PHP and WordPress).
Thanks again 🙂
I struggled with this for weeks. It never worked out well for me.
I used the Register Helper add-on plugin to add custom fields to the PMPro registration. I tried the above mentioned fixes, but nothing I tried let the PMPro registration process communicate with the BuddyPress (basically, I wanted one registration page to fill out the BuddyPress profile AND the necissary PMPro info).
Whichever way I tried it, they remained seperate. Of course, the PMPro registration process did add the user to BuddyPress, but with an empty profile, regardless of the custom fields that I added.
FINALLY, after MANY hours of working with this, I tried s2Member. This plugin is much more involved to configure, BUT it works perfectly AND integrates well with MailChimp. So now, I not only have integration with BuddyPress (specifically the profile, although the display is a bit off), but also with Mailchimp. And, this means that I can have different mail-lists or mail-list groups within Mailchimp! Perfect 🙂
Basically, what I am saying is that if you want a better integration, go with s2Member.
Note: I did not pay the $300 / year for paid membership pro support (too expensive for me), maybe they would have been able to help me resolve this issue. I did scour the forum and glean every bit of info I could to solve this without paying, but to no avail. BUT, with s2Member, it is free AND only $80 one time for the Pro version of the plugin.
And, if anyone sees this and has a solution, please add. As people (I assume because I was) are still looking for a solution.
