    1) https://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-email-login/
    2) no plugin exists
    3) there might be a plugin for this… though I’m not 100% sure.

    So ray would there be anyway to allow member to add their own url?

    For #2, you could create a profile field for a user to input their existing blog URL. But this would only be a link to that person’s blog.

    I’m guessing you want to import a user’s external blog based solely on the blog URL; this isn’t possible. However, something could be done with a blog’s RSS feed, though like I said before such a plugin doesn’t currently exist (that I’m aware of!).

    Why not just go into profile field setup and add a new field called “Blog URL” where they can enter their blog? Unless I’m misunderstanding what you want to do.

    I can add rss feed but if user don’t give a correct feed URL it screw up everything. That’s the problem I am facing

    Puanthanh what is the issue when they input the wrong url feed?

    Sorry Ray and tech guy I am very green at this the program I commission to do my website have fallen out and now it seem I am on my own. Perhaps you can able to guide how do I add the new field. From buddypress options?

    http://yourdomain.com/wp-admin/admin.php?page=bp-profile-setup (replace yourdomain.com with your domain)

    That’s the page where you can add more fields that people can fill out at registration and will appear in the person’s profile.

    thanks techguy for the guidance. Any idea then how the RSS feed works then.

    @profitsbuzz Though this method is not exactly what I wanted, I use java script to fetch RSS feed and then I use the profile field data tag to call in. If we can integrate feed url validation this will work.

    I have tried it live on my site. But users don’t usually give their correct feed url. So it show up error message and it spoil the whole page.

    What do you want to do with the RSS feed? Pull in the latest posts to the person’s profile?

    Yes that would be great.

    have a look at @boonebgorges plugin: https://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/bp-external-activity/ and you could modify that to attach to usermeta vs groupmeta
