Display contact info in public profiles

    I’m using the WordPress bbpress plugin. I noticed that when I look at a profile, it only shows the bio, forum role, topics started, and replies created.

    However, it allows the user to edit the profile and provide their social network links and other contact info.

    It seems odd to me that it doesn’t show the contact information. What’s the point in typing that in if it’s private?

    I should ask: If possible, how can I display that information in the public profile (forum/users/username)?

    I can, but so far I have no idea. I found blogs talking about a plugin called bbsocialize, but it appears that the plugin ceases to exist.

    This seems like a fairly easy plugin to make and I look forward to seeing it become reality.

    I don’t really understand PHP all that much at the moment, though I am learning. From what I do know, I was able to figure out how to display the user’s URL by making a /bbpress folder in my theme’s root and copying over the user-profile.php file. And then I added this underneath the user description section:

    [sourcecode language="php"]

    <a href="”>

    [/shortcode]

    Though, I’m sure there must be a shorter way of turning text into a link?

    Anyways, I wasn’t able to find any function for the other fields under ‘Contact Info,’ which makes me wonder if those are coming up under some other plugin.

    Edit: I have no idea how to display code. Sorry. And it won’t let me edit my post.

    [solution removed because I have no clue on how to provide code examples]

    Let’s try this again…

    Open up the following PHP document in the bbPress plugin, found at -

    bbpress/templates/default/bbpress/user-profile.php

    Using the AIM field as an example, add the following -

    `
    `

    Now you probably shouldn’t alter these files, as the next time bbPress is updated, the update will overwrite this. You’ll need to make a copy of the file under your theme directory. So it should look like this -

    yourTheme/bbpress/user-profile.php

    That’s exactly what I did but I couldn’t figure out how to display more than the user’s url. Your code doesn’t show up still so I don’t know how you got the AIM field to show.
