Re: Making profiles public?
Kitwit, I think you’re a little confused… It’s working exactly like it should.
The directory pages are the pages that show the A-Z options on the top. The profiles are just profiles. They reside in members/username, but viewing a profile isn’t the same as viewing a directory of many users.
When you turn on Extended Profiles, it will totally ignore any of the admin area WordPress profile fields, and wait for you to create your own profile groups and fields. Extended Profile information can then be edited through BuddyPress on the front end of your profile area, exactly like you can do here.
When you turn off Extended Profiles, BuddyPress will fall back on the WordPressMU user information found in the admin area (if you have the BuddyPress setting turned on for it to do so.)
