Linking Front End Fields to Back End Fields

    Morning All,

    As the title suggests Im wanting to basically link the frontend editable fields to the backend fields somehow (When I refer to front end im talking about the editable profile within Buddypress and respectably the back end being the admin dashboard within WordPress)

    For example I use a Livestream plugin where it will auto add their feed to the Livestream page if they add it to their profile in the admin page. Is there a plugin or a way of me either forcing that plugin to look directly at a custom front end field or editing the back end field to basically equal the front end?

    This is just one example of the links as I would like to link quite alot to the backend fields

    Hope someone can help or point me in the right direction

    Thanks
    Para

    @paralys there’s no plugin which would implement the synchronization of the BP xProfile fields and the WP User Profiles in the backend. Either you need to hire a developer to create this plugin for you, create it yourself or wait for someone to create one and release it to the public.

    We have a premium plugin that shows xprofile fields on the User > Edit screen in the Dashboard:

    Hey thanks for the reply….

    I dont mind paying for plugins but do you have a free/cut down/trial version of the plugin so that I can try before I buy? I don’t want to fork out for a plugin that doesn’t do what I want it to so to speak :)

    Will this plugin show every single back end field and allow it to be modified etc?

    Thanks
