BuddyPress Profile Integration


as this is an add-on, it has some dependencies and the name of the add-on describes that it is dependent on two add-on:

  1. WP User Frontend
  2. BuddyPress

This add-on makes a bridge to exchange data between the above mentioned two plugins.


As you are here you already have installed WP User Frontend Pro and BuddyPress plugin. The installation process for this add-on is really simple. Install the .zip package just like any other WordPress plugin and activate. And the must do after installing any plugin, Save the permalinks.


Interesting thing is that you do not need to configure anything!


To create the profile fields that you need in BuddyPress, navigate to wp-admin ? Users ? Profile Fields and click Add New Field

Add new filed on buddypress

Then you will get a new page to enter the details of a new page. The field name is the name you will see in the form to assign from a dropdown. So you can name this field with a hint so that when you have a lot of fields, you can easily identify the fields and assign them in right place.

You will find various kinds of fields in the new field creation page. You are free to use any field that fits your needs best. But as you are making something for your users and a lot of people is going to use this, you should keep in mind that you must

custom buddypress profile fields

Now we are done with creating custom fields for BuddyPress profile and we will move on to the registration form of WP User Frontend, which is located at wp-admin ? User Frontend ? Registration Forms ? Your Form.
We will find an extra tab for BuddyPress in the registration form edit panel.

If we do not have any custom field in our form, then the tab for BuddyPress will be empty. Similarly, If you do not have any extra fields in BuddyPress like described above, the tab will be empty too. And the options in above screenshot is shown just for testing purpose. These values won’t be visible in your form. So there is no point on writing the options on BuddyPress profle fields. Just make the fields in BuddyPress profiles, and then assign them in WPUF registration. And the options should be made in WPUF registration forms. Not in BuddyPres profile fields.

We have to click on that and we will be able to see a screen like this.

Now you just need to save it and check once from the front. And you’re done.
