Settings -> Profile Visibility does not display

  • Xander206


    WordPress 4.1.1 – Fresh install to a subdirectory
    BuddyPress 2.2.1 – (Awesome Plugin!)
    iBuddy Theme 1.0.2 (also posted a request in WP Theme Support page)

    When I click on my profile Settings->Profile Visibility nothing loads below the menu bar in the content area where I suspect the various profile visibility options should be.

    I have checked the various PHP files to ensure they contain the latest path and terminology changes made in the last year or so; it seemed to match the latest documentation i could find.

    There is not a profile.php file in …BuddyPress/Members/Single/Settings as I expected.

    I went ahead and tried downloading the latest version of that file from the default BP theme but it didn’t change the behavior.

    Any idea why the Profile Visibility link would not display any options?

    I noticed the theme I am using has not been updated since the above issue was resolved and I have requested support on the iBuddy Theme Support page but it has not been responded to in quite a while.

    Any guidance regarding what I should do next would be appreciated.

    Thank you!

    There is not a profile.php file in …BuddyPress/Members/Single/Settings as I expected.

    Look here: bp-templates\bp-legacy\buddypress\members\single\settings\profile.php



    Thanks for your quick reply.

    I tried adding that file:

    to the …BuddyPress/Members/Single/Settings directory and saw no change in behavior.

    I don’t get an error page and in the console appears to load …/members/bud/settings/profile/



    This file looks correct too: bp-xprofile-loader.php

    It matches the documentation here:



    I think I got it working although I didn’t quite get the result I expected based on the name “profile visibility”. I expected to see settings like “show my profile to group everyone/members/friends/logged in users”, “show me in the directory”, etc.

    Instead the page that loaded shows the various Profile Fields and allows the use to toggle the visibility of each field. This seems very similar to the controls available when the user when editing their profile (where they can set these same visibility settings).

    This file: …themes/ibuddy/buddypress/members/single/settings.php

    was missing this

     case 'profile'        :
    		bp_get_template_part( 'members/single/settings/profile'        );
