I am using the BuddyBoss platform and theme, and the BuddyPress Xprofile Custom Field Types plugin. When trying to add fields from the Custom Field Types plugin to the BuddyBoss Profile Search, they are not available – not there. I referenced a similar forum support post and I see that search capability for the Birthdate Selector field should be available. I am trying to use the Birthday/Age field specifically, and make ages searchable in BuddyBoss Profile Search on the member directory. There seems to be a compatibility issue here.
Hi Brajesh, just checking in on the status of getting Xprofile Custom Field Types updated so that I can add Age (Birthdate Selector) to my Buddyboss search. I still don’t see the Xprofile custom fields available in Buddyboss profile search options. Thank you.
Hi Brajesh, thank you – I see the fields are now available in the Profile Search options in BuddyBoss. However, the format available for the search isn’t really usable for my purposes. The Birthdate Selector field has the advantage of being able to present members’ ages, not raw birthdates. For search, I need the same capability – search based on a range of ages, but unfortunately, that’s not the way it’s working now. To further aggravate the issue, even if I did concede to searching based on birthdate ranges, it’s forcing the user to have to select a day and month and year, otherwise it returns no results – this is not useable in my opinion. Are you willing to update this so a user can both easily see member ages and easily search for age ranges?
