Edit WordPress core user fields in BuddyPress profile

    Hey guys,

    Couldn’t find a definitive answer so I’m asking here:

    I’m looking for a way to allow users to change their profile infos, including the WordPress core fields (name, email, bio, website, etc.) from their BuddyPress profile edit page.

    I’ve overloaded the profile-loop.php template (I’m using Extended Profile) and the xprofile fields are showing correctly; just need to add the core ones.

    Can anyone tell me if it’s possible and maybe even give me pointers please?
    Thanks!

    Your task is very logical – but fraught with danger.

    Have you noticed that emails can be edited from a Profile page via Settings?
    And how a confirmation email is sent?

    And this setting: wp-admin/admin.php?page=bp-settings > Profile Sync ?

    So it’s possible but not easy.
    Display of those fields is fairly simple – but writing handlers to save those fields… eek.

    If it was me, I’d just add Profile fields for bio and website – and move on.
