Xprofile field description under field label

  • ElectroMagnetic


    Hi there.
    I have WP 3.9.8 and buddypress 2.01 ( with Xprofile ) and using the sweetdate theme from seventhqueen ver 2.6.3 together with a child theme.

    Is there any method you can help me with to add the field description below the field label. currently the descriptions are below the desired answers required for the profile field and can be somewhat confusing when the field is quite long.
    I did wonder why it was done this way as most forms would explain the topic and question before the required answer.
    What I would like to achieve is that all fields in all Groups created in Xprofile have this change and not just the “base Group” used for registration ( group/1/#main ) As I have created 8 groups and each have approx 10 fields in each. The fields are a combination of “text” ” checkboxes” “Dates” etc.

    Thank you in advance

    if you’re comfortable with HTML, you can try to modify the template by moving the field description to the place you want it to see.

    The file is register.php in wp-content\plugins\buddypress\bp-templates\bp-legacy\buddypress\members
    Make a copy of that file into your child-theme
    /your theme/buddypress/members/register.php



    Hello danbp, thank you for the feedback.

    I have the register.php in my child theme, but am unsure where to place

    <p class=”description”><?php bp_the_profile_field_description(); ?></p>

    in the file to get the description below all the field labels.

    I’m not that familiar with HTML and would really appreciate your help here…and this would also help the others on the support forum for the Sweetdate theme…this problem has been asked a few times but with no resolution..



    I understand, but i’m not here to help supporting premium themes. You paid the theme and for support.

    If you don’t know how to do this, you may want to consider hiring a developer.



    Hello danbp.
    I understand your position totally and thank you for your honest and frank reply.
    I have posted this question on other forum sites including Buddydev and wpmudev and essentially they all point me back to buddypress ” this is a buddypress issue you should seek a solution there”

    So, I’m stuck between a rock and a hard place.

    Anyway, thank you for your time and advice. Although this problem might take me a bit longer to solve I’ll continue to scout this forum for other smaller issue I need solved
