delete user profile fields
Hi I’m trying to delete some fields from the “basic” tab of the user profile field. I delete them and they disappear, but when I delete another one and the page refreshes the original deleted field reappears. I have tried it with my current theme (woffice) and with twenty-fourteen with the same results. Any fixes for this?
You say nothing about where you try to delete your fields.
So i assume you are using BuddyPress the standart way and are working as “site admin” in the backend.
Generally, when removing something comes back after you did it, it is because you forgot to save your changes. So far i know, there is no ghost or 4th dimension inside BuddyPress. 🙂
Hi Thanks for your reply but I’m not sure how the codex you sent me is helpful. I’m trying to set up the registration page as the admin – not edit those fields after the fact. Here is a screenshot of the backend of my user profile fields page. There is a button to delete fields, but no save button anywhere on the page. What am I missing.
I mentionned the front-end xprofile admin because you mentionned you want to delete some fields from “base” group. As site admin, you can access any user profile from front-end and modify the fields.
As site admin, you have also the possibility to access those fields from within the admin dashboard, where you can physically delete xprofile fields…
As i don’t want to login to dropbox to see your screenshot, i ignore what you mean precisely at this time… except “delete some fields” which is, so far, enough for me.
FYI, any xprofile field goes on the registration page. And the fields themselves are in the admin under dashboard > users > xprofile fields
That’s the problem – when I try to delete the field from my admin dashboard>users>xprofile fields than the situation I described in the initial post is what is happening. The developers of my theme said they had encountered this as a buddypress issue before and asked me to contact you. As this happens in twenty-fourteen as well I’m assuming it is not a theme issue.
Hum, i have not noticed such an issue on any of my BP sites, what ever theme i use…
Have you tested with all plugins deactivated ?
Afaik you have to debug properly.
Use WP and BP only, with Twenty Sixteen and wp_debug activated.
