    Hi there,

    I tried to create custom profile fields for the buddypress profile and then tried to delete it, but everytime I get a 403 error. the same when I’m trying to edit a field:

    As you can see, the error refers to the user.php file.

    Has anyone an idea what to do?

    Unless the buddypress plugin is network activated (I want it only on some specific sites) I can’t edit or delete any xprofile fields. I received an error message from wordpress that I don’t have access to that page.

    Running BuddyPress 2.8.2

    Hi good folks at BB,

    Q1) How do i go about adding TabIndex to input fields for TEXTAREA or CHECKBOX ? This works for TEXT input types but not TEXTAREA or CHECKBOX.

    $tabno = 0; //number of fields from above
    while ( bp_profile_fields() ) : bp_the_profile_field();
    <div<?php bp_field_css_class( ‘editfield’ ); ?>>
    $field_type = bp_xprofile_create_field_type( bp_get_the_profile_field_type() );

    //this does not work for TEXTAREA or CHECKBOX

    //Q2 Why do I need this line? How can I hide these ids?
    <input type=”hidden” name=”signup_profile_field_ids” id=”signup_profile_field_ids” value=”<?php bp_the_profile_field_ids(); ?>” />

    I’m able to create xprofile fields but I can’t edit or delete them. I receive the error “Sorry, you are not allowed to access this page.”.
    I’m a super admin in multisite and admin on this site.
    I have disabled all the plugins except buddypress and that did not fix the problem. I have changed the theme to twenty seventeen and that did not solve the problem.

    Wordpress Multisite install v4.7.3 and buddypress v2.8.2

    bp_root_blog is set to site #3 (Only site with buddypress activated)

    I want the members on my dating site to fill in profile fields about themselves and then be able to search for specific characteristics they desire (found in other members’ profile fields) to find a “match”. I haven’t been able to figure out how to do this. I think it requires two sets of profile fields – one for “myself” and one for “my ideal date”.

    How can I create the two sets of profile fields and connect them so when a member searches for “my ideal date”, the info from other members’ “myself” is accessed and a matching percentage given?

    I think it has to be two sets of fields because the language differs between when a member fills in info about themselves and when they input what they are seeking.

    I’m trying to get my site up live and it’s taking me forever so I sure appreciate any help you can provide.

    I’m using WordPress 4.7.3 running Sweetdate Child theme that came with BuddyPress Version 2.8.2

    I was dealing with this problem too. It might not be exactly what you’re looking for, but in my case I just decided to hook into the BP signup, extract the full name, split it at the first space and then update the WordPress ‘first_name’ and ‘last_name’ user metadata fields with the results.

    Here is the code you can add to your functions.php or custom plug-in:

    // define the bp_core_signup_user callback 
    function ac_bp_core_signup_user( $user_id ) { 
        // make action magic happen here...
        $fullname = bp_get_member_profile_data( array( 'field' => 'Name', 'user_id' => $user_id ) );
       //split the full name at the first space
       $name_parts = explode(" ", $fullname, 2);
       //set the firstname and lastname for WordPress based on the BP name
       if( isset($name_parts[0]) )
            update_user_meta( $user_id, 'first_name', $name_parts[0] );
       if( isset($name_parts[1]) )
           update_user_meta( $user_id, 'last_name', $name_parts[1] );
       //not needed for an action, but I always like to return something
       return $fullname;
    // BuddyPress save first name last name to WP profile on signup 
    add_action( 'bp_core_signup_user', 'ac_bp_core_signup_user', 10, 1 );

    I have buddypress installed but I have overidden the buddypress registration page. I prefer to use the default wordpress registration page because it is easier for me to not only create custom fields but apply data validation rules that suit my usecase (enforcing unique entries, regex format etc). I can not do this for the buddypress registration page.

    How can I ensure that the wordpress user profile/account details (phone number etc) are displayed on the user’s buddypress profile page. I noticed that only the display name is shown by default. Can the user also control the visibility of this display? Any guidelines on how to achieve this shall be appreciated.

    thanks in advance

    In desperate need for a function where a custom user type is currently on viewing a custom post type (single.php) where they can upload images from the front end and crop on the front end aswell before attaching to the post in the exact same style and fashion as the edit profile image screen.

    I am currently using the Advanced Custom Fields plugin along with Advanced Custom Fields: Image Crop Add-on. I have managed to create a custom field type “user image crop” and used the native Advanced Custom Field <?php acf_form(); ?> to display the form to upload the image on the front end.

    My issue is that, when the user goes to browse for the image, it browses through the media library popup. And I do not want the user to see what is inside the media library at all. I would just like for the user to be able to upload the image to the post on the front end exactly like on the page for buddypress where the user can upload a profile image and crop without any popups.

    Hoping someone could maybe help in finding a solution/plugin to a piece of functionality I am looking for.

    I am developing a website that would list users names and a specific value from their profile in a table (preferably sortable).

    The idea is that a user enters how many birds he has seen in his country. That value then displays on his profile (easily achievable with custom fields), but then what I am looking for is a way to then have a separate page that shows a list of all the usernames and their value for that field.

    “List of Members Who Have Seen 500 Species”

    And then a list of the usernames as well as the totals.

    I have managed to fix this and here is the solution in case anyone is interested:

    The problem was at the bottom of edit.php:
    <input type="hidden" name="field_ids" id="field_ids" value="<?php bp_the_profile_field_ids(); ?>" />

    Because I manually called certain xprofile fields by their ID, I had to specify which profile fields to write back to.

    <input type="hidden" name="field_ids" id="field_ids" value="<?php bp_the_profile_field_ids(); ?>" />

    Became this:
    <input type="hidden" name="field_ids" id="field_ids" value="73, 83, 106, 27" />

    Hi all,

    I have a strange issue on my hands.
    When logged in as a regular user/member on my Buddypress site, I go to the edit profile page (edit.php) and populate the profile fields with new/updated information. When I hit save and check the profile, the information is not updated.
    However when I am logged in as admin and do the same thing, the fields will update and store correctly.

    At first, I thought it was an issue relating to the fact that I have heavily modified the edit.php file and have fields from 3 groups showing on one page. So, I deleted all but one group. No change.

    I am now thinking it has something to do with write permissions.
    The URL of the edit profile page is: members/username/profile/edit/group/1/

    Anyone have any ideas on what it could be?

    I create this post because when I try to modify or delete a profile fileds. I have an error message saying that I do not have the right to access the page. Here is the message that appears : “Sorry, you are not allowed to access this page.”. And, I can create new fields with the same profile that denies me access to modification and deletion.

    Currently, I uninstall and reinstall the plugin as it is indicated on the following post: Here.

    My version of wordpress is : 4.7.3
    My version of buddypress is : 2.8.1

    Hi all,

    I am wondering how I can custom sort (“Order By”) by xprofile fields on the membership page.

    I’ve searched both Google and this forum high and low and have gotten nowhere. There are a lot of threads asking this question but no straightforward answers.

    For example, one of the custom fields is “Availability,” and I want people browsing the membership directory to be able to be able to sort or filter by the user’s availability status.

    How can I do this?

    Thank you!

    I am looking for a way to get users register not only in the main site but also to choose the subsites they join. I thaught maybe with the Xprofiles fields but this should need customization.
    Is there a way?

    I havejoin my multisite but it does not allow registration on multiple sites on registration.

    Thanks in advance!

    I need to implement some custom validation during the signup process, using a BP form with XProfile fields. I’m doing so with the “bp_signup_validate” action. In my callback, I can access the global $bp variable to get the username and email used during signup. But custom XProfile fields are not available.

    Is there any other way I can retrieve that data during the validation process? The user account is not yet created, so I can’t use xprofile_get_field_data yet (AFAIK).

    I’ve been searching for months for a plugin that will add a repeater xprofile field, but no luck. Does anyone have any insight or direction as to how I’d even go about doing this myself? Thanks so much!

    I’m still sorting the confusion of the theme I bought that uses buddypress and a bunch of other things for its social features.. I’m working on the registration fields, I fixed a glitch from earlier in the week that messed up the way the theme would present login and register.. under buddypress in my dashboard now I’m trying to edit the profile fields section where I found a lot of great things to add to the registration process… I cant however fit any of them in my themes register box pop up.. each field scrolls down page as I add.. I know this is most likely theme related but anyone know how I can make them appear this way [email info, username][profile fields]

    instead of [ ]
    [ ]

    ill probably end up contacting my theme provider but figured id ask that^, the real reason I came here is to ask, if I remove all profile fields from the registration page.. how can I create a page for them to fill in after they register and have the info appear on their “base” info page… also is there a way to disable name change after registration?

    Profile photo of psnation

    Yes, it works with xProfile fields. You just set it as a text box. You can see it on my registration page. No need to join the site. Just type in the city box and it’ll populate.

    That’s an interesting plugin. Do you know if the location fields are xProfile fields?

    Do you mean you have created additional profile fields? If so BP Profile Search plugin would allow you to do that.
