“Edit your bio” links to wp-admin

  • janaa


    As per this page
    #7691 At Userโ€™s front Page Edit your bio link leads to current admin user backend profile

    This is true even for subscribers.

    I want to keep users at the front-end only, and away from the wp-admin dashboard. Is this possible?

    I am using WordPress 4.9.8 with Woocommerce and BuddyPress 3.2.0. I have enabled BuddyPress to WordPress profile syncing in BP Options because I need BP integration with Woocommerce. I have installed Theme My Login to redirect users to the front-end for Registration, Login, Logout and Lost Password. But it doesn’t allow for bio-edit.

    Is there any way to resolve this so that users are kept at the front end for editing their bio?

    Hi Janaa,
    The best option here will be to disable the bioedit section.
    You can do it by visiting Dashboard->Appearance->Customize and clicking on “BuddyPress Nouveau” panel.
    Under this panel, you will see a lot of section. You will need to choose “Member Front Page” as shown here

    Once you are there, you will see 2 options to disable front page or the bio section like this

    Depending on your need, please feel free to disable them.

    PS:- To be honest, you don’t need bio field, you can manage user’s details from xprofiles.
