    Could/Should I use WP User Frontend with Dokan if I need new fields? I'd like to add just one field to the sellers details/profile, their website address if they have one.

    As I'm running Buddypress, I'd like their shop to be linkable within their profile. Is this easy?

    I noticed the email of sellers in their shop is a simple mailto: What would I have to do to make this a link to an email form instead? mailto's kill emails for users because of spam. Is this a WP User Frontend example?

    Thanx again

    Hello Drew,
    You can insert any type of field and as many times as you want.
    To show the field on the settings page you have to use the dokan_settings_form_bottom action and to store the data, you have to use the dokan_store_profile_saved action.

    You can make the email address as a plain text or can embed a contact form in the sidebar. To change the mail link, you need to edit the store.php which is located at “wp-content/themes/dokan/” go to line number 60 and you'll be able to see the mailto link. You can customize as you want.

    Dokan is not dependent or a must use with User Frontend Pro, but some of our clients use it to get some more accessibility. And to integrate with BuddyPress you might need to hire a developer.

    *** Please make all your changes in a child-theme or your changes might get lost upon update.
