Extended fields overwriting profile fields on save

    Hi,

    I’ve installed Buddypress and created extended fields. I’ve found that when I create a new user in the WordPress admin, it copies some of the information from the profile fields into the extended profile fields.

    For example one of my extended fields is ‘Membership type’. When I create a new user with the name ‘Bob’, I find that the ‘Membership type’ is now ‘Bob’ for that record. When I try to overwrite it I find all the fields start overwriting each other every time I click save. For example I change ‘Membership type’ to ‘Individual’ and find that the ‘first name’, ‘nickname’ and ‘display name’ are all now ‘Individual’.

    I’m using BuddyPress version 2.6.2 and WP version 4.6.1

    Can anyone shed some light on what’s going on?

    Many thanks.
