Members List

  • tmc5005


    My website already has a members list created from another plugin called members list plugin. I am not happy with how it is functioning so I installed buddypress, but when I tried to use it buddypress did not show any of the members already signed up. How can I integrate the old members list into a buddypress members list?
    Thank you

    BP uses a timestamp called last_activity to track members.
    If they have not logged in since you installed BP [ or since they registered or were added by a site admin ], they won’t show up in the members list because they do not have a last_activity timestamp.

    Did you show up in the BP members list?
    If not, then there are other problems.

    If so, you can use this function to add a timestamp to each member.
    Put it in bp-custom.php, load the site once and then delete the function.

    function add_activity_ts() {
      global $wpdb;
      foreach ( $wpdb->get_col( "SELECT ID FROM $wpdb->users" ) as $user_id ) {
        bp_update_user_last_activity( $user_id );
    add_action('bp_init', 'add_activity_ts', 11);



    All of my past registrations were through bbpress. In that case would what you are telling me still work, would I need to change the registration to buddypress?
    Thank you.




    wp+bp+bbp = 3 register possibilities, but only one register scenario. So it has no effect on from where the users registered. All are in the same table: wp_users.

    Now, what you can try, is:

    – activate (if not already done) profile syncing in BP settings
    – check permalinks settings and resave the page (even if you mane no change to it) – this will recalculate all site urls
    – using the repair tools. Dashboar > Tools and follow the instructions
