BP 1.02 *requires* extra signup fields?

  • Greg


    I would prefer not to have a separate username and “friendly name” at this point (mainly because I’m using BBPress, which only has the one username).

    So in my home theme I had removed the ‘signup_extra_fields’ action in functions.php. That is:

    remove_action( 'signup_extra_fields', 'xprofile_add_signup_fields' );

    It worked fine – the registration page only asked for a username and email address.

    In BP 1.02, it no longer works. Entering information on the registration page and pressing next has no effect. It just stays on the registration page.

    If I remove the above line from functions.php (and add back the extra fields) everything works fine.

    Has my ‘remove_action’ hack been invalidated by changes in 1.02? Is there a better way to ensure that these extra fields don’t appear at signup? Or is the name field now a requirement?

    Well, I found a workaround, but I’m really nervous about unintended consequences. I went into the db and changed “is_required” on the “Name” field from “1” to “0”. Now I can register without the extra profile fields.

    It seems that the name field gets set to the username, which is what I need.

    Any thoughts about the unintended consequences of this?
