Links within "about me" section

  • I think I noticed this before and never bothered to say anything because it doesn’t actually happen in the profiles on my BuddyPress install. And so I don’t quite know where I should post this. (Sorry.)

    Here on the profile page depending on how you write your “about me” section random links show up, e.g.,

    If it was only linking say “cupcake decorating” I would find that awesome, but it starts taking search terms from my dog’s name. (I assume because of the comma?)

    Obviously, this is not a life-and-death kind of issue, but it’s an odd quirk that I thought I’d bring up (and searching quickly I didn’t see a previous mention).

    Yep, it’s one of the most useless things in BuddyPress.

    You can get rid of those links by adding the following to your bp-custom.php file:


    function remove_xprofile_links() {

    remove_filter( ‘bp_get_the_profile_field_value’, ‘xprofile_filter_link_profile_data’, 9, 2 );


    add_action( ‘bp_init’, ‘remove_xprofile_links’ );
