Where do profile fields show up?
Hi, I’m using WP 5.1.1 and BuddyPress 4.2.0
I don’t really know PHP (therapist, not a programmer), so I’m flying by the seat of my pants here. I have created several profile fields but I haven’t found where they show up for members to use them. Also is there a way for members to search the member group by profile fields?
website is southaustinpsychotherapygroup.com/biblio-therapy and requires password “bibliotherapy”
In Users>>Profile Fields there is the default Base profile Field Group. The fields are included in the Registration form inputs, if you make any of these required the user can’t sign up unless they fill them out.
You can create other field groups, but the fields on these are not included in the registration page and would need to be filled out after registration.
At the front end, site users viewing the page
sitename.com/members/username/profile, There user can edit these fields by accessing the age
As an admin you can view these details by going to the Users page in admin, for each user there is an Extended link which allows you to view and edit the users Extended Profile (xProfile).
When you are editing the profile field there’s a setting to Autolink the profile field, this should include it in the Members search.
I think the problem is that I’m using the MemberPress plugin with BuddyPress and it’s defaulting to the MemberPress registration field. I did have it set up to default to the BuddyPress registration field. I want to go back to the BuddyPress registration but I don’t know how.
You definitely don’t want to have two sets of registration data.
I definitely don’t! Any idea on how to make it default back to BP and not MP?
Sorry no, I don’t know MemberPress, maybe you could ask their support?
What are you using memberPress for? Maybe there’s an alternative so you can deactivate it?
I’m using it to make a membership site. I thought I needed it in addition to BuddyPress/bbpress. I really don’t know what I’m doing, if you couldn’t tell. 😉
A few years ago I was in exactly the same boat as you, I guess we all have to start somewhere. If I were you I’ve remove some of the complexity to your setup by deactivating MemberPress and then proceed to configure your site just with BuddyPress and see how far you get creating your ideal site. BP has a great many features and options and with a wide range of plugins available for it there should be very few scenarios that BP cannot deliver for you.
