BuddyPress Newbie. Help needed on some issues

    Hello,
    This is my first time using BuddyPress and I want to create a website using WordPress where users can connect with doctors.
    During registration, a user can register as a Doctor or Member. Doctors will have extra profile fields which are to be filled in their profile area when they are logged in. I have already created two Member Types (Doctor & Member), I have also created two user roles (Doctor & Member) but I don’t know how to kick it off from there. I would like information on the plugins that will help me achieve this and probably how to go about it.
    Thanks.

    I would suggest https://wordpress.org/plugins/buddypress-xprofile-custom-fields-type/ to create your profile fields. There also conditional field plugins that would allow you to set up different fields to members and doctors.

    Thanks for your response. How do I get the users to select if they’re doctors or just normal member during registration so that they won’t have access to the extra profile fields meant for the doctors when they log in?
    Thanks

    I think what you’re looking to do can be done with the Ultimate Member plugin. You would create a conditional field so if doctor were selected it would have separate field.
