I have a custom form that I’m using to update user meta data with but it’s not jiving with Buddy Press.
Here’s the code I have in to update…
update_user_meta( $current_user->ID, ‘first_name’, $new_first_name );
Where “$new_first_name” is the value entered in the form.
It’s not working on the email or password fields either… where I have the following…
`$args = array(
‘ID’ => $current_user->id,
‘user_email’ => esc_attr( $entry )
wp_update_user( $args );
These things work on other non-buddypress sites, so I’m thinking it has to be how BP stores the member info.
I’m using this to populate the form with the user’s information…
$ud = get_userdata( bp_displayed_user_id() );
$current_user_data = $ud->first_name;
Does anyone know the function call to update the user data?
