remove extraneous titles?

  • Lesley Austin


    Just getting back to setting up BP for my private membership site after a several weeks hiatus and am having a hard time figuring out a few things. Above the profile flelds it says:

    “Editing ‘getting to know you’ Profile Group”

    getting to know you

    …and below has the “getting to know you”. That is alot of distracting wording. Is there a way to remove the heading (editing “getting to know….) ?

    I would really prefer not to have a group at all, but that seems to be required? We will just be one big group, and like things spare and uncluttered. Any ideas would be most welcome.

    I wanted to include a photo of this, but don’t see a way to do that…

    Either you’ve forgotten you created that xprofile group name several weeks ago or another Site/Super Admin created that profile group :-)

    It’s not a Groups component but a Profile component. To edit the name of the Profile Group Name, go to wp-admin dashboard menu BuddyPress > Profile Fields and click on the Tab “Getting to know you” and click on Edit Group button under Profile Group Name.

    As for adding an image fields in user profile, can’t do that in default and there’s no plugin for that at this time. You’d have to develop this or find a developer to do this for you.

    : )

    No other admin, only me. I think I wasn’t very clear. What I am trying to do is get rid of all that language-the group name, the heading the comes up when you type in the profile fields “editing Profile group…”

    Is it possible to have profiles but not have a heading/name or a group at all?

    As for the images, I meant that I wanted to add an image here to show you what I meant…but that is good to know about profiles, too, for I was thinking that would be a nice option.

    Just trying to keep things clean and uncluttered.

    Thanks so much for the help!



    Easiest way is to hide those headings by adding the following at the end of your theme’s stylesheet:
    `div.profile div.base h4 {
    display: none;

    To add image, you can post the URL of the image here.

    Thank you! That worked nicely….of course, I still have the group name there and wish I wasn’t required to name a profile group, but it seems to be a required thing.

    Thanks again.
