Display choice in drop-down select box after submitting



    I am using some drop-down select boxes for users to make choices when editing their account pages. When a user makes a choice and submits the form, that choice is reflected in my admin; however, if the user navigates back to edit their account, the option they chose in the drop-down is no longer displayed, instead replaced by either the default value or a blank entry if no default has been chosen.

    How can I ensure that, once a user makes a selection, they will always see that selection in future sessions, essentially overriding the system default value?

    I am using WP 4.2.5 and BuddyPress 2.3.3. I am currently developing locally so I can’t send a link.

    You’re talking about an extended profile field on a member’s page > Profile > Edit ?
    And changes are appearing properly in wo-admin > Users > User > Extended Profile?
    But not on the front end for that member?
    Then it sounds like a theme issue.
    To confirm, try switching to a standard WP theme like 2015.



    You are correct on all three of your questions.

    I tried switching themes and am still seeing the same issue.

    I’m actually using BuddyPress in conjunction with WPMUDev’s Membership 2 Pro plugin, so it’s an issue with how those two are functioning together. I’ve posted on WPMUDev’s forums but can’t seem to find an answer there either, so I tried posting here hoping one side would know what the problem may be.
