Re: Howto extend the “Profile Field” dropdown for large options entries
This is a free, open source project primarily powered by volunteers’ efforts. So don’t expect to get instant results.
As r-a-y has stated, there used to be several pre-built fields and site developers also had the option to create their own pre-built fields by importing their list via a .cvs file. But, as Andy states in this thread, that feature is no longer available:
So, you either have to code a solution yourself or hire a developer to do it.
By the way, up until two-weeks ago, there was only one official BuddyPress developer. Now there are two. The rest of us are unpaid volunteers–some of us with coding experience, some of us with design experience, and some of us just interested in running social networking sites.
You can ask for additonal insights on the #buddypress-dev IRC channel. But even there, it is simply a group of developers with their own projects and responsibilities. Only Andy and jjj are the official voices of BuddyPress development.
