    What does this option actually do? I’d like to know a little more about it if anyone has some info…

    It is found under Settings > BuddyPress > Profile Settings

    @hnla – not quite sure I follow…?

    It syncs your MS sites or so I thought, but I may well be wrong.

    Spent the last 30 minutes doing some digging and found an old thread with a detailed explanation from Boone:

    As far as I can tell, two functions perform the ‘syncing’ of data


    Syncs Xprofile data (nickname, first name and last name) to the standard built in WordPress profile data


    Syncs the standard built in WordPress profile data to XProfile

    That’s about it. Nothing exciting really, just two nice little housekeeping functions

    ah hmm yes, so I was a little wrong :) should have known this, just goes to show… did some work a while back mapping custom tables across to user tables then matching to bp profiles, probably missed these functions at the time.

    Hey guys,

    I found your thread and thought you guys may have a similar issue as I’m having as it relates to buddypress and registration. Was wondering if you are encountering this:

    bbPress (2.5.3) seems to completely ignore what the user had originally set as their password on my registration page from the very beginning of registration.

    More detailed explanation:
    On the registration page, the user chooses their own password, and then once approved, the user is then sent an automated registration message which then assigns the user a new random password. The user then has to log in using this random password and reset the password.

    Have you encountered this? Any solutions?

    thank you,
