Are these fields still empty? They will appear once information is added.
Hi iamthewebb, Thanks for your lightning-quick response.
Doh, just found the solution: extended profile information is shown in Users>Your Profile>Extended Profile
…I was missing the tab at the end.
Does anyone know how I can find the ‘short code’ names for the extended profile fields, e.g. <favourite_colour> for ‘Favourite Colour’?
Sorry, ‘shortcode’ is not the correct term. WP uses table column headers, e.g. ‘user_name’. How can one see a list of those (contracted) column header names for made Extended Profile Fields?
I’m not sure I fully understand but if this is for writing code you just use the name in single quotes. For example if I had an xprofile field called ‘About me’ I would use
xprofile_get_field_data('About me', $member_id);
Just getting to grips with terminology. The issue is a catch-22:
I have a CSV file of data to import to new, Extended Profile field names in WP. I know the Extended Profile Field LABELS (e.g. ‘Favourite Colour’), but I cannot see the Extended Profile Field NAMES (e.g.
favourite_colour). I need to see the names, so that I can type these into the appropriate column headings of the CSV file, so that data gets directed to the right WP Extended Profile fields on import.
The plugin I’m using, show field LABELS but not field NAMES.
I have tried using a plugin that shows field names, but it does not ‘see’ the Extended Profile field names made in another plugin.
I’m aware that if I import the CSV file, then the fields might automatically be made in WP on upload. However, I want the field data to go the field categories I have already made.
Can you advise? Thank you for your help. Much appreciated.
@cmsplay there are a couple of plugins in WordPress repo to import the user from CSV and few of them have support for BuddyPress.
