Re: Add a link to others network
I did some investigation at the BuddyPress xp-profile component and it doesn’t look like you can override or add the “field types” in the profile (“text box”, “date selector”, etc.) without editting the core files. Which means it’s off of my short-term list to make this into a plugin. It’s a shame, my solution would be great to add for social networking or anything really.
I suggest (1) perhaps using the “settings” panel for the user to add these variables (I did an example recently of this) or (2) do socialbandit’s hack.
Andy – can we build in a way to override the field types for profiles? If “date selector” is a custom object it’s possible we will be coming up with more.
