    hi @igid26,

    FB’s share button on a buddyPress profile is very simple to use.
    You have only to provide the profile URL, not the whole profile header.

    The code could be something like this (not tested, not sure if you need also a API key, or some urlencoding)

    <a href="">Share on Facebook</a>

    The picture cannot fit as you use bp_displayed_user_avatar( ‘type=full’ ) which is by default 150x150px. And FB’s code you entered is 550×550 !

    To add some extra code in the header profile, you can do this with a function in a child theme functions.php instead of hardcoding the template. And another great advantage, if you use bp-custom.php, you will be totally theme independant.

    function zuzanna_share_button() {
    	<a href="<?php bp_displayed_user_link(); ?>">Share on Facebook</a>
    add_action( 'bp_before_member_header_meta', 'zuzanna_share_button' );



    Does it means that you have to resize the default picture?



    i’m not a FB user, and never be one, so i could not answer to your question.
    But it seems to me that – if FB check the profile URL, that he would build a share interface or template with a whole profile excerpt or something.

    We both don’t know, so try the snippet as is first, and ask after.
