Profile text data is automatically hyperlinking

  • Jerry Helms


    A lot of data entered into profile fields is automatically creating a hyperlink. Look at the members on

    How can I turn this off?

    How can I get the web site address to hyperlink to the actual web site?

    This is the default behaviour.

    Please try this plugin for putting it off



    Throwing this into bp-custom.php…

    function remove_xprofile_links() {

    remove_filter( 'bp_get_the_profile_field_value', 'xprofile_filter_link_profile_data', 2, 2 );


    add_action( 'plugins_loaded', 'remove_xprofile_links' );

    …worked for me.

    If you don’t have a bp-custom.php file, create one and put that code in it, then save it into the wp-content/plugins/ directory.



    this feature should be by default within BP-core.

    Not sure why some text is turning into a link and some text is not. Typically the first word and the last word in a string of words is not linked, other words within the string are indeed linked.

    Why do I always need a plug-in in order to turn things off which do not make any sense at all ?

    Although people might say “this is WP standard feature” – I am wondering what kind of “standard” this is ?


    I have no idea where you are getting “standard WP-behaviour”. As you can see from the, xprofile improvements are scheduled for BuddyPress 1.3.
