Re: wp and bp profile syncing–works only sporadically

Mike Pratt


@Andy I think the central issue is that WP and BP store member info separately. For the uninitiated, it means that comments on blogs on a BP sire will not show the same profile info as comments on forums, etc. b/c the blog gets it’s info from the Wp table. So if you go into my admin on my site, none of the info is filled out except email and username, altho there’s AIM, website, First Name etc. But none of that is made avail into a BP install. On my site, the blog comments say ” username” commented….. instead of “Display name” commented.

Additionally, if WP has all those user fields, why are they not exposed to BP already? That’s what is being talked about. So I am writing functions to sync up that data.
