    Wordpress: Version 4.7.4
    Buddypress: Version 2.8.2

    Not sure why lots of options in all member profile fields suddenly are all linked to the Member page. Those links were not there before and I can’t find out why.

    In this photo“%20alt=”commercial%20photography%20locations”

    everything under the “user1” column are linked to the Member page. Every member’s profile are like that. But these links weren’t there before and I don’t know why they are now suddenly there.

    No Base profile or any others, and when I try to create it says “There was an error saving the group. Please try again.”

    Everything was running fine, until I migrated to a faster server using Litespeed to handle the WPGeodirectory Plugin. I migrated from a sub-site of a Multi-site to a single site. I paid a professional to do it, and everything else migrated fine, except this, which I just noticed now.

    I deleted the buddypress and reinstalled a fresh copy, in case the database files were corrupted or missing.

    I’ve deactivated most plugins except the GEO Directory ones (I don’t want to lose settings), updated my KLEO theme, and even tried it on 2017 theme. But still the same issue.

    I am trying to edit my BuddyPress User Profile Fields at Whenever I click to Edit a field, I get “Sorry, you are not allowed to access this page.”

    I have logged out and logged in again.
    I have changed themes.
    I have done a plugin conflict test with regular plugins and mu-plugins
    I have removed my .htaccess file.
    I have disabled my functions.php file in child theme.
    debug.log does not show any errors.
    WMPU has looked at it and not been able to find a cause.

    Can you suggest what I could try next please.

    I am using WP v4.7.3 but the problem existed on v4.7.2 as well.

    Try going to .../wp-admin/users.php?page=bp-profile-setup.
    If the fields appear there, you should be able to delete them.

    I used a BP to PP profile sync plugin. Probably a mistake, as activating and deactivating it several times left me with multiple redundant “First Name” and “Last Name” fields in the profiles for my users. They show up under the Extended Profile tab. Sadly there are no delete options for these fields. How can I get rid of them? Thank you.

    Hey folks,
    I’m running into the “are you sure you want to do this?” message when I try to add another value to an xprofile field. Is there some kind of limit or PHP value that value that might need updating? Or maybe a WP memory limit? I can delete a value and add it back but then when I try to add an additional one I get the message again. I have over 500 values for this field currently.

    I’ve deactivated all plugins, except Buddypress of course, tried the default theme. There are no errors in the errors logs.

    Thanks for any and all assistance!

    Hi all,

    I have hit a roadblock and need some help.

    I am trying to collect a member’s address using 5 different html input text fields, then combine these values and pass them to a buddypress xprofile field.

    Here is what I have come up with so far:

    <?php $mailaddress = array('street_number', 'street_name', 'suburb', 'state', 'postcode');
    /******   Mailing Address    *******/ ?>
    			<div class = "custom-edit-field">
    			<input id="street_number" type="text" name="<?php $mailaddress[street_number]; ?>" /><br />	
    			<input id="street_name" type="text" name="<?php $mailaddress[street_name]; ?>" /><br />
    			<input id="suburb" type="text" name="<?php $mailaddress[suburb]; ?>" /><br />
    			<input id="state" type="text" name="<?php $mailaddress[state]; ?>" /><br />
    			<input id="postcode" type="text" name="<?php $mailaddress[postcode]; ?>" /><br />
    			<div class="submit-edit">
    			<input type="submit" name="profile-group-edit-submit" id="profile-group-edit-submit" value="<?php esc_attr_e( 'Save Changes', 'buddypress' ); ?> " />
    	do_action( 'bp_after_profile_field_content' ); 
    	<?php $mailingaddress = implode(', ', $mailaddress);
    	xprofile_set_field_data( 'Mailing Address', $userid, $mailingaddress ); ?>

    This is not saving back to the XProfile field “Mailing Address” and I don’t know why.
    Does anyone see what I am doing wrong here?

    I’m trying to create a link on a members blog posts by pulling two fields from their profile.
    1st Field: Website Name
    2nd Field: URL to website

    I was trying the following code but it don’t work.

    <a href="<?php echo xprofile_get_field_data( 'Your Website URL', get_the_author_meta( 'ID' ) ); ?>"><?php echo xprofile_get_field_data( 'Your Website Name', get_the_author_meta( 'ID' ) ); ?></a>

    Note: Alone each code does work in calling the right information. Can anyone point me in the right direction

    I added some custom xprofile fields and am displaying them in the members loop/directory. But one of these fields is quite large; users often enter 200-400 words or more. I am happy to have this field show in full on the individual profile page, but I am hoping to truncate it after ~100 words on the members loop with a “read more…” link back to their profile.

    How can this be done? Thanks in advance.

    I would like to add a dropdown list to the buddypress registration form on my website, to give users creating an account the ability to select their user role (eg. candidate or employer). What can I add to the register.php page to complete this?

    I have attempted to add the dropdown list in the profile fields section of the registration form, however, when users activate their account, their role is the WP default free subscriber.

    -I am using BuddyPress and s2member. My registration page is located at

    I have checked “Enable BuddyPress to WordPress profile syncing”, yet Buddypress is ignoring the following WordPress standard fields:
    Biographical Info

    How can I allow the user to edit these fields via the Buddypress profile editor?

    Also, the Buddypress profile editor allows the user to set a “Cover Image”. How can I give admins access to users’ cover images?

    Hello, we have a real puzzle in the use of buddypress (version 2.8.2) of the site
    The field profile extended primary is not editable: does not appear the options to change the visibility or change the type of the field.
    The problem is only on the primary profile, the other fields work.
    Do you have any tips on how to fix the problem?

    The site is still in Maintenance mode, and we use the version 4.7.3 wordpress, Kleo theme 4.1.2.

    Hi !

    I’m looking for a plugin to do a complex profile search, like for example.

    I tried BP Profile Search but it does not work (the result of the search is always “no result”). I tried to contact the support forum, but no answer for 2 weeks.

    Also I’d like a better treatment of the multiselect fields : buddypress allows “Enable select2 javascript code” option, to have the same on front-end would be perfect.

    I looked for a similar plugin without any result.

    Do you know any plugin for that ?

    I need someone that can set up a zip code proximity search field, like you would find on a dating web site. I have purchased the pro version of Profile Builder from Cozmolabs, so it would be ideal if this would work with that, but not necessary. I just need to make sure it works with something where I can set up other custom profile fields. I also have BP Profile Search installed.

    I was told this is an easy thing to code, so I’m not sure why it isn’t a standard feature of any of the profile builder/search plugins available for Buddy Press.

    I need to have this done within the next month.

    I have WordPress version 4.7.3 and Buddypress version 2.8.2

    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.

    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.

    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 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.
