    In reply to: CPT per each BP-User

    Profile photo of Pietro

    Thank You dandp …

    Mmm … it doesn’t seems to be enough … I do not really need custom fields into the bp-profiles … I need to connect to any bp-user a PRIVATE Custom Post Type. Something like a post. But personal, which nobody can see, except administrators for instance, or people who is allowed by the user itself …
    … I hope it is more clear …
    I will keep thinking about this. Hopefully I will find a way.

    Thank You.

    In reply to: Username vs Real Name

    Profile photo of danbp


    these fields are required by the system.
    WP ask for username, password and email. When BP is activated, he uses WP’s name option Public Name so he can rely to WP. This field called Name is the only one which is required by BP for that reason.

    When you visit dashboard > users > your profile, you have a tabed page with profile options (the original WP user manager) and Extended profile (which belongs to BP) where you can edit your profile. On WP’s tab you see login, first name, last name and public displayed name. On BP’s tab there is only Name, which reflects what is in first and or last name.

    In wp_users table, you have user_login, user_nicename and display_name

    user_login and user_nicename have the same content
    display_name contains first and/or last name (if exist from a previous WP install, before BP installation).

    Depending what and where something needs a name to work (avatar, comment, notice, activity, etc), one or the other name option is fired.

    If you don’t need/want real names on front end, you can use this plugin:

    WordPress: 4.1.1
    BuddyPress: Latest
    Theme: Aggregate by Elegant Themes

    Hi guys,

    I’m really at my wits end and not sure where to proceed from here. I have a live site that is going on about a month now, we have around 25-30 users at this current time and they’re constantly reporting to me that a page here and there is showing “No Results Found.”

    Up until this point, it’s been okay and I’ve just re-saved the permalink structure each time, but today the worst thing possible happened and my login page became “No Results Found.”

    Thankfully, I was logged into my site via my PC, so I could update the permalink structure, but what if I hadn’t been? I don’t know how to fix this, I don’t know what’s causing it.

    The major issue is, it’s intermittent so deactivating and reactivating plugins one-by-one may not be the most useful route for this simply because I can’t guarantee when it’s going to happen, in order to deduce what the issue is.

    Any help in this matter is extremely appreciated.

    I was wondering why the “default user profile fields” like website, twitter, etc. are not accessible via the Buddypress profile page on frontend. I have searched the whole internet but didn´t find an easy way on how to make this fields available and editable.

    Background of my question:
    – I´m using WP together with WP Events Manager
    – In WP Events Manager you can add easily custom user profile fields
    – So if a user subscribes to an event you can save additional information like “special interests” and saving this directly in user profile
    – But then after event registration the user can not update this data in his buddypress profile
    – He can only update it if he goes after login on his profile in backend (/wp-admin/profile.php)

    Thanks for feedback and sharing your experience.

    Hi there,
    I need to add an option to select between Subscriber & Editor as a user Role during registration in buddypress so that when a user register he/she can select the desired user role.

    I tried the examples from earlier post but didn’t worked for me. Also BuddyPress xProfiles ACL is not available for my version of WordPress.

    I am using: wordpress 4.1.1
    I have also installed few buddypress related plugins-
    – BuddyPress Xprofile Custom Fields Type
    – rtMedia for WordPress, BuddyPress and bbPress
    – a self created buddypress plugin

    Please help

    register page

    I need that registration page layout, so i create my fields in user/profile fields:
    – Account type is on Base (primary) tab [A]
    – other four are inside register.php [B]
    – fields for selected account type are in my field group tab [C]
    – [D] is just description for selected type (can be added by jquery)

    modified code

    How can i insert only few fields from my tab group [C] when user choose option 1, and another when 2nd option are selected.
    – Is possible to do this with php (hm case?break?) or only by jquery?
    – how to get raw fields option values for that selectbox?

    thanks for any example.

    // WP: v4.1.1 // BP: v2.2.1

    Profile photo of mfiguerasma


    I’m using WP 4.1.1 with theme Fifteen and I recently installed BP 2.2.1
    I had a personalized wp-login.php page (the existing file plus some style changes) and I’ve modified all header.php, footer.php, sidebar.php, index.php files.
    At the BP configuration, I choose the Register page to be associated to the new register page created during BP installation.
    So now, when I access to http://mysite/wp/wp-login.php?action=register “somekind” it’s redirected to http://mysite/wp/register/ and it renders the BP registration page but:

    • There’s no page header. None. It starts with <div id="primary" class="content-area"> instead of <html>
    • The first line of register.php is <div id="buddypress"> but there are some div before this
    • There’s no page footer

    I’m very newbie with both WP and BP but I’m pretty sure it’s not the regular behaviour.
    I need to know how to include my personalized header and footer from the BP register.php page and/or call my already customized wp-login?action=register page instead of the BP one, but I’m working with xProfile fields so I assume the best is going to be the first option.

    Anyway, could anybody tell me how is a BP page (e.g. the registration one) rendered? Which files+functions (the final html code related ones) are called? I can’t see the flow easily…

    Thanks a lot!

    Profile photo of ch1n3s3b0y

    @danbp – I’m guessing this is the function I need order_by_most_favorited() to edit to work with XProfile fields?

    I’ll try it now and see if it works with XProfile fields.

    i want to edit my BuddyPress profile on a single page instead of serveral tabs/pages.

    By now, every profile group generates a new tab with an own URL. Even if there is only one field within a group.

    Is there any solution to display all groups on a single page? So the user can edit and save all fields without clicking through serveral tabs.


    In reply to: Registration Page

    Profile photo of IHaveToDoThis

    Go to your profile page on your site. Next to ‘View’ there is ‘Edit’. Click on ‘Edit’ and you can change fields like your name, etc. and you can also see it’s visibility. You can change visibility settings by going to your admin dashboard and playing around with the profile fields under the Users tab. Your users will be able to see their profile visibility under their profile tab and have the ability to change it (if you give them that option).

    Hope this helps! Took me a while to get it too.

    This code is working. But its showing Current user custom fields for any profile i visit. But i want Particular user custom field under particular profile. How can i do that ? I tried adding ,123 as suggested in that documentation but getting error

    <?php do_action( 'bp_before_member_header_meta' ); ?>
    	<div id="item-meta">
    		<?php if ( bp_is_active( 'activity' ) ) : ?>
    				<?php do_action( 'bp_directory_members_item' ); ?>

    then added that to the buddypress pages

    Make sure that you didn’t add the Register link under any of the main BP component pages (e.g. Members, Groups, Blogs, Activity) in the menu links.
    Make sure that you didn’t add any text in your “Register” page so that BP can automagically add the Registration Form and the first group of the Profile fields in thepage.
    Make sure that you’re not logged in when you go to the Register page.

    I’m running the most current versions of wp/bp and have a theme called KLEO running. I’m attempting to use xprofile fields for my users to add embeds from the included oembed providers in stock wordpress. I have tried share links, iframes and shortcodes and can’t get them to display on a member profile page. The activity stream etc. displays them no problems I just can’t get them to display on any member profile page . Can anyone shed some lite on this for me??

                                    <?php $theUserID = bp_get_member_user_id();?>

    Please help me to do it right.

    ^+1 wow, i totally need this too… DESPERATELY.

    if i had realized just how difficult this was going to be to accomplish,i never would have started this project with buddypress. what is the point of xprofile fields if they are not easily searchable?

    there are so many GREAT things about buddypress, it’s super frustrating that this thing which seems to straightforward is so challenging.

    i have been searching … the “buddypress profile search” plugin is not the answer… it isn’t user friendly enough. I just want one search box – “find a teacher in your city” that will search 4 xprofile fields of all our teachers… ONLY THOSE FOUR FIELDS… and return the results.

    i’ve tried a google site-search tool, too…
    the trouble is that our teachers have bios, and in those bios they often include cities where they have trained, or toured, and we do NOT want those included in the “Find a teacher” results.

    i have Base City, and 3 “additional teaching locations” fields… those, and NAME, are the ONLY fields i want searchable.

    i can pay for help.
    but i figured this would be something simple i could do myself!

    I am building an online community for a fitness instructor and would like the following feature but have no idea how to go about implementing it.

    I would like to create a custom post type called Fitness Stats, when my client goes to this post type in the admin and clicks add new I would like the following fields to appear:

    User – This either needs to be a dropdown of current users or a user search facility that populates this field with a user.
    HIP Measurement
    Waist Measurement
    Arms Measurement
    Chest Measurement
    Legs Measurement
    Calorie Requirement,
    Calorie requirement for fat loss (-500),
    Calorie requirement for muscle gain (+250)

    When this record is saved I would then like the results displayed on the users profile (only to them) in a table so that more stats can be added.

    Is this possible?

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    function wdw_bp_get_field_options( $field_id ){
    	global $bp, $wpdb;
    	return $wpdb->get_col( $wpdb->prepare( "SELECT name FROM {$bp->profile->table_name_fields} WHERE parent_id=%d AND type='option'", $field_id ) );

    You can call the above function passing id of the field( fieldabc in your example ). This will return all options of the field in an array.

    1. I installed woo, bp, bb on wp separately. I have groups with private forums and went right to bb and made a few forums that don’t belong to groups. Is there a way for me to HIDE just the PRIVATE forums from while them still being visible/public on

    2. Because I installed buddypress, does that mean I have to remake all the fields (like Bio) from the WordPress user fields? Some of my wordpress plugins add fields to wordpress profile but not buddypress extra user fields (google authorship or badge os options for instance). So by enabling buddypress, does that mean that members can no longer access the wordpress dashboard at all?

    1. Which version of WordPress are you running?
    > The latest
    2. Did you install WordPress as a directory or subdomain install?
    > Main Root
    3. If a directory install, is it in root or in a subdirectory?
    4. Did you upgrade from a previous version of WordPress? If so, from which version?
    Fresh Install
    5. Was WordPress functioning properly before installing/upgrading BuddyPress (BP)? e.g. permalinks, creating a new post, commenting.
    6. Which version of BP are you running?
    7. Did you upgraded from a previous version of BP? If so, from which version?
    8. Do you have any plugins other than BuddyPress installed and activated? If so, which ones?
    BBPress, Yoast SEO, BadgeOS, Woocommerce + a few others
    9. Are you using the standard BuddyPress themes or customized themes?
    10. Have you modified the core files in any way?
    11. Do you have any custom functions in bp-custom.php?
    12. If running bbPress, which version? Or did your BuddyPress install come with a copy of bbPress built-in?
    Latest (seperate)
    13. Please provide a list of any errors in your server’s log files.
    14. Which company provides your hosting?
    15. Is your server running Windows, or if Linux; Apache, nginx or something else?
    Linux redhat

    Do you recommend I create text/content and install a form plug-in for my ‘register’ page associated with the BPress first before working on adding Member Profile Fields?

    @dleit please do not install any form plugin for your “Register” page. Leave it blank as BuddyPress will dynamically add the necessary forms. What you need to do is set up the profile fields. Remember that whatever field you add in the first group of the profile field will appear on the right side of the Reigstration form.

    It just doesn’t seem like it will solve the “user registration is currently not allowed” issue.

    After you add the member profile fields/group(s) you want for your community, I suggest going to the admin menu Settings > General and Allow Registrations. BP Codex is your friend

    Hey guys,

    I am trying to get all options associated to a field without being assigned to a user. I know bp_get_profile_field_data( array('user_id'=>$current_user_id,'field'=>'fieldabc' )); grabs the user data, but how could I do this for retreiving all options associated to a custom profile field?

    I.e. fieldabc has checkbox 1, 2, 3
    user ID has checkbox 1 from fieldabc.
    What I want is to return all checkbox fields from fieldabc.

It just doesn’t seem like it will solve the “user registration is currently not allowed” issue. Thank you for the link there on adding Member Profile Fields (I feel confident in doing that). It just dawned on me that my site should look like this in some ways because the BPress is in use.

    Profile photo of @mercime

    I created a page for each component in this plug-in and I don’t know what to do next.

    @dleit It depends. You could start adding Member Profile Fields and/or Create Groups and/or install Group and/or Sitewide Forums if you need forums.

    btw, spammers have been removed :)

    This seems so basic to do for the world’s most advanced CMS, but I cannot figure out how to do it. All I want to do is this:

    -Have certain types of users answer certain questions during registration.
    -Specifically, patients, family, caretakers, physicians.
    -Carry that data over into matching fields on a profile page for the user.
    -Have unique PROFILES and FIELDS for those aforementioned user types (so one layout/field set for patients, another for the caretakers, etc).
    -Profile fields that CANNOT be changed after the initial registration.
    -Profile fields that CAN be changed after the initial registration.
    -Change the registration page layout so that all the questions are not in just a list.

    I guess I’m trying to get the function and look of Ultimate Member with the feature set of BuddyPress. I realize the two do not interface, and I don’t want them to. I want BuddyPress to freaking work!
