Re: Link Profile Field Type
I have been hoping to do this for at least 3 weeks now. Wouldn’t it be better if the profile fields could be broken up? The make searchable would work perfect for other data. When checking make searchable, the formatting of links would not apply allowing more data customization options such as links.
However, this still leaves the issue of lumping data together. All data that is marked or shown under the profile leaves no way to truly customize it. So then it would be better if data was segmented to allow a type of include or not to include–that way you can post the data where you would like. Or how about the option of adding data to group segments? A drag and drop approach through the control panel.
For instance, you could drag a field under PROFILE or if you would rather have it show up under LINKS then you have the option to drag it under that category.
Then in the profile you would have to add the options for categories, not just:
<?php if ( function_exists(‘xprofile_get_profile’) ) : ?>
<?php xprofile_get_profile() ?>
<?php else : ?>
<?php bp_core_get_wp_profile() ?>
<?php endif; ?>
