Alternative to Xprofile

    Buddypress has been abandoned and is essential in my site (and probably many others) I am looking for an alternative without programming to add profile fields to members.

    Or if someone to an old version, mine being corrupt I’m interested to see if it can still work

    BuddyPress has not been abandoned. It’s alive and kicking.

    @grounder Try to update BuddyPress at your site and if you are already using the updated version, you can go to Tools >> BuddyPress to repair tables.
    If your database is huge then I will suggest repairing all options one by one.

    Hey guys, @grounder is talking about xprofile fields plugin, not Buddypress. Read the thread title.

    I assume it’s this plugin as it has been abandoned by wordpress recently as it has not been updated in 3 years or so.

    I am also using this plugin and looking for an alternative. My hosting (wp-engine) just notified me that this plugin has a security vulnerability and they have contacted the developer to fix it but I doubt it will happen.

    I think this plugin might be an alternative but have to look into it, if anyone is also in this situation. This one is also not updated:

    Ah that makes sense. I guess it depends what fields you need.

    I’ve emailed WP.org about it. Surely someone could take it over and fix the issues.

    I had a response from wp.org, they will not discuss plugins that have been closed. I guess one option is to create a complete clone of this plugin, with identical settings, and use that instead. It does mean that all 7,000 current users will be blissfully unaware of the solution unless they go looking though, so not ideal.

    Thanks @venutius.

    I’m actually using Paid Memberships Pro plugin for my memberships management and they just recently released a BP integration which takes care of the xprofile fields plugin problem as I was told by one of their tech support. It is better installed when you just create your site as they still have to create syncing issues between their fields and regular old xprofile fields for older members – currently this syncing is not available but will be. So as a result I will have to manually move the data over from the members prior to using their integration (about 200 people but it’s doable) . I’m waiting for the code to be installed on my site by their tech support to do this.

    But if anyone is interested, they should check out PMPro for managing bp or other memberships, it really is great and it’s always supported. I am using the Pro version which is expensive per year however you get great tech support and they will go into your site to modify things and help you install various add ons and integrations. This BP integration plugin is available in free version too I believe. If you have a serious memberships site where you do or intent do make money, it’s worth to pay for the yearly fee though for support and access to more add ons.

    I’ve tried other membership plugins and just wasn’t working for me.

    Hopefully the old xprofile fields plugin can be cloned by someone for those who are not going to use PMpro. It’s odd that there are not many options for this plugin and it’s not supported as it’s very essential.

    Here’s PMPro info:

    Paid Memberships Pro

    The integration plugin below, you need the above memberships plugin installed though:
