    That’s a Firebug question, but not important anyway. Also, there is no need to use all rules, as they are handled by the original CSS. You declare only the part you want to modify for .label

    Open /child-theme/style.css and add only this: (#xyz123 is the color hex you want to use)

    #buddypress table.profile-fields tr td.label,{
       background-color: #xyz123!important;
       color: #xyz123!important;
    }

    Hi,

    this feature is currently handled field by field when you’re on the field creation page.
    dashboard > Users > Profile Fields
    Edit an existing field and see in the right column the box named Autolink. From there you can choose to enable/disable it.

    For more details about the concerned fields and autolinking, read comments in bp-xprofile/bp-xprofile-filters.php:322

    Well, I was able to do this by going into wp_bp_xprofile_fields in phpmyadmin, finding my Profile Field Label… and changing the value to include the HTML.

    Also it seems, for some, since there is a 150 character limit, I may have to increase the character limit size to meet my html length.

    Thing is, I’m not sure if this is the best way to do something like this?
    Editing straight from the database seems a little iffy, I don’t want to potentially break anything.

    Any comments? Re-assurance?

    I’m trying to add a ‘tooltip’ hover feature to some of my Profile Field labels.
    For example, one of my profile fields is ‘Twitter Handle’

    And I’m trying to modify it that it is something like….
    <abbr title="Twitter handle without the @ sign" rel="tooltip">Twitter Handle</abbr>

    I’ve found strategies to modify to HTML in bp-custom the profile field DATA using bp_get_the_profile_field_id or xprofile_get_field_data but none which seem to help me modify the profile field label.

    Any tips?
    TY!

    Hi,

    I need to add buddypress 2nd registration form but without email or password. just username may be, with some custom fields.

    Example: Teacher register from main register plugin and add students ( using 2nd register form) to the database, students also will have profiles with these data.

    Is this something possible, buddypress can do? Any plugins?

    Thanks!

    Hello! I’m trying to get a buddypress going and have a question about profile fields. So, in the Profile Fields we can choose let members set the visibility of certain fields. However when I’m testing out searches, I’m finding that member profiles are still coming up when I search for terms that I know are in hidden or limited fields.

    For Example: I have a location field that members are allowed to set the visibility of. I edited my admin profile so that it says I’m in Boston and set it so that only I can see this info. (autolink is also disabled)

    When I view the admin profile as a logged out user or as my logged into Participant account, Boston is not listen anywhere. But, when I got to “Members” and search for the term “Boston”, that admin profile pops up as a result despite that field being set to “only me”. The Location is still not visible when I (as a logged out or logged in participant) actually view the profile, but I feel like something set to “only me” shouldn’t be coming up in search results at all!

    Is there a way to set it so that these terms in these hidden or partially hidden DON’T come up in general or all members search results? Or is there a plug in that can handle this?

    (apologies if this as been asked and answered somewhere I ran a few topic and plug0in searched but didn’t find anything.)

    Hi,
    have you done this ?

    – create a new field
    – enter Birthday as title
    – give a description
    – Under Type section, select date selector
    – save

    When you’re on a profile’s edit page, you should see
    – title
    – date selector (day, mounth, year)
    – This field can be seen by:….
    – the field description

    If you highlight the whole and check his source code, you would see something like:

    <fieldset class="datebox">
    
    	<legend>Birthday</legend>
    
    	<div class="input-options datebox-selects">		
    		<label for="field_xx_day" class="bp-screen-reader-text">Select day</label>
    		<select id="field_xx_day" name="field_xx_day">
    			<option value="">----</option>
    		<label for="field_xx_month" class="bp-screen-reader-text">Select month</label>
    		<select id="field_xx_month" name="field_xx_month">
    			<option value="">----</option>
    		<label for="field_xx_year" class="bp-screen-reader-text">Select year</label>
    		<select id="field_xx_year" name="field_xx_year">
    			<option value="">----</option>
    	</div>
    </fieldset>

    If you can read this code but don’t see it’s ouput on your theme, you have to find which CSS rule is handling the labels.

    Could be a simple contrast issue or something omitted somewhere.
    To get sure of this, try first with one of Twenty’s theme.

    And if possible, answer the questions you already received from Paul and give some details about your install: used theme and plugins at least.

    I try not to use extra plugin which I already using 30. Is there’s some kind of file that I can go download and overwrite it?

    Please advise, thanks

    Hi, things are going great on my desktop, where the WordPress profile loads on the left and the Buddypress loads on the right for the register form. But it is a mess on mobile with short fields and overlapping headings. How can I get the Buddypress section to drop below the WordPress one when viewed on mobile, so it can utiise the full width.

    Ah, what’s the profile field type for that? Is it a date field type or a “Birthday” field type?

    Are you using the https://wordpress.org/plugins/buddypress-xprofile-custom-fields-type/ plugin ?

    BuddyPress will try to sync the value of a user’s “Name” field to the First and Last Name fields in their wp-admin user profile.

    To disable this, go to wp-admin Settings > BuddyPress, and disable Profile Syncing.

    @mugwumpman,
    first and last_name fields don’t belong to BuddyPress, but to WP profiles.

    BP use only a field called Name at first install. User can enter their first AND last name in that field. Is this what you’re talking about ?

    After reading your topic on wp.org, it seems that you use those fields to enter datas which are not first and last names, but more for company and company activity or such.

    As you use BP, i would suggest you use the power of xprofile and offer to your user a much better experience by adding a field for a company and another for company activity (or something like that). So you can forget WP’s profile fields and use BP’s xprofile fields.

    WP’s profile field used when BP is activated are: username, email and password.
    And BP adds his mandatory Name field, which can be first, lastname, username or whatever other unique name belonging to a subscriber (which can be a human, a pet, a company….).

    And yo can as many fields you want to the registery or for later on profiles.

    The other problem related to font case is a mistery so far. Can be related to many things such as plugins or theme or custom function. This can be determined by debuging and using one of WP’s default theme and all plugins deactivated.

    No matter to know if you fill a wp or a bp field for this. Both use a textarea, so it’s probably more a css thing somewhere.

    “WP was finding it difficult to distinguish users on our current system with users of Buddypress”

    correct cause bp adds additional profile fields…xprofile fields like name for example. rest gets stored in the wp_users database.

    maybe u can try setting up different subdomains…bp on community.yoursite.com and forums on forums.yoursite.com

    Actually @danbp I knew that there was a difference between an site admin and an average user. To be certain of it, I have just created an account specially to test the plugin but that does not still work. I can always modify the at will profile fields. What’s to be done?

    Thank you very much @danbp.
    I shall have another small question for you if him you are willing:
    Do you know how can prevent the users from modifying one profile fields of type “Dropdown selector” ? That is they can fill this field while their registration, and then that it is not modifiable any more, but that he remains at least shown on the profile.

    Thank you in advance for your help

    Has anyone had success with implementing the xprofile custom field image field type?

    Trying to use it to display an image on profile but only a field number displays. No response from plugin developer so I am just wondering if this field is actually functional. Thanks ahead for any responses.

    Hello,

    It’s be great if someone can suggest me how to get custom text before outputting the xprofile field contents. For eg., I’d want to output like “Lives in ($Loction)”, “Studied at ($school)” etc.. How do I output those custom text as “Lives in” “studied at” before the actual content output of fields. The reason being I’m using this on the sidebar widget.. Though I tried with something like:

    <?php echo ‘Lives in’, xprofile_get_field_data( ‘Location’, bp_displayed_user_id(), $multi_format = ‘comma’ ) ?>

    It outputs the “Lives in” custom text irrespective of whether the field is empty or filled.. I want to show both custom text and field content only when the field is filled..

    Thank you.

    Hi BP,

    This is very strange? The register page where people input their profile fields information.

    All these LABELS such as username, gender, city, country are find.

    However, the Birthday drop-down selection day/month/year is fine…. But the BIRTHDAY(AGE) Label doesn’t show(gone,invisible)?

    Can I get help how to bring the BIRTHDAY label to show?

    Please advise, thanks

    Hi there,

    I’m using buddypress as a recruiting platform where people have a form with xprofile fields to complete a complex CV. I want all the data (even members list) to be private, I just want the user to be able to see his own data and delete or modify it.
    Only admin should be able to see the member list in order to select profiles when necessary.
    To do so, I have set almost all fields to “Only me” and limited access to public areas in the following way:

    /* Prevent logged out users from accessing bp activity page and other profiles*/
    add_filter('get_header','nonreg_visitor_redirect',1);
    
    function nonreg_visitor_redirect() 
    {
    	global $bp;	
    	// The user ID of the currently logged in user
    	$current_user_id = (int) trim($bp->loggedin_user->id);
    
    	// The author that we are currently viewing
    	$author_id  = (int) trim($bp->displayed_user->id);
    	
    	if ( !current_user_can( 'manage_options' ) )
    	{		
    		if( bp_is_activity_component() || bp_is_groups_component() || bp_is_group_forum() || bp_is_page( BP_MEMBERS_SLUG ) || ($current_user_id !== $author_id && $author_id != 0))
    		{
    			wp_redirect( get_option('siteurl') );
    		}
    	}
    }
    

    For me it works fine, but I’m new at Buddypress, and I wonder if I’m missing something.
    Is there any backdoor that I have forgot?
    Should I limit something else?
    To preserve this info is crucial for me.
