Show enhanced info in user's profile

  • diggeridoo


    Hi, I’ve been searching for this matter in the forum but I haven’t found a way to deal with this.
    I’d like to enhance the user’s profile page showing more fields, like web page, ‘about me’ field, ‘send me an email’ or similar.

    Do you know how can I achieve this?

    i know this is possible there is some function to display usermeta

    webpage: there is a website field in contact details in bbpress profile , that i think it gets that from wordpress profile information and just displays it frontend.

    about me: there is Biographical Info under About Yourself so its possible to call it using a display usermeta function i think.

    send me an email: you can make a link with php inside of it so it would end up with mailto:(user-email), i dont know for sure if thats a safe way to do it though.

    and you just put all that code and display on the frontend where the forum role and user stats are.

    I would say add Buddypress.

    It add quite a lot to the profile (custom fields is included) and you can pick and choose from the different components like private messages, friends system, notifications, groups and so on.

    It should fit on top of Buddypress seamlessly.

    You can also use WordPress’ custom profile fields:

    And an example plugin here using the above method:



    Thank you guys, that detailed info will really help!
    I think buddypress is the option what I’m looking for, private messages is a plus for my needs.

    Thank you all!!
