User Pages?

  • Hi Guys,

    I’m trying to create a pet tribute site. I want to have two kinds of pages.

    One where people can post memorials to their pets that have sadly passed away.
    Another type where they can post tributes and tell us how wonderful their pets are.

    I don’t want it to be a blog type page. I want it to purely be a static page which has a predefined template, all they need to do is to insert their text into the boxes provided and upload a few images. Then I want a link to be listed on their profile page, as well in sub catagories.

    Is there any sort of plugin that allows this?

    there is no plugin but I’ve got an idea how to do that but my php isnt that good I hope php-programmers will help us.

    1. You go to Profile Field Setup and create a new Category called pages and add then you add some fields.

    2. You create a new tab and you’ll need to add this code:

    * If you’d like to show specific profile fields here use:
    * bp_profile_field_data( ‘field=About Me’ ); — Pass the name of the field

    Change About Me with your specific field

    3. NOW :D one php-programmer here must tell us how we can “delete” the created category in the profile page


    Now … any PHP programmers want to help?!

    Wait, I’m confused. You want it to show up in their profile, right? So why not just create a profile group and relevant fields?
    Although…hmm….that might get tricky in terms of multiple Living/Deceased. Or you just allow a max number of pets (say, 5 in each category) and create that many profile fields. Anything left blank won’t show up in the profile.
    That wouldn’t let you upload photos natively, although I wouldn’t be surprised if we already have a plugin for that.
    Then again, you also wouldn’t have anything compiling everybody’s tributes. Is that what you want? Have to admit, I’m not super-clear on what you’re looking for.

    Hm.. Not my most helpful reply, sorry.

    Another thought: maybe you can mix a form you create with one of the front-end blog post plugins. So whatever interface they’d normally have to post an entry to the blog (your listing of everybody’s tributes) would be heavily locked down to just the info you want. I’m thinking BuddyPress would automatically include a link to the generated tribute post somewhere in their activity feed. (I know you said you don’t want a blog type page, but here I’m assuming you meant that you didn’t want the submission page to be part of a blog, not that you don’t want the submitted tributes to be incorporated in a blog.)



    yeah but maybe you want to have somethink like nickpage :)….

    and it would be cool if you could show fields/categories in a new tab on profile homepage
