    Hello, hope I can get some assistance please.

    I followed the tutorial here https://buddydev.com/show-only-users-of-opposite-genders-on-buddypress-site/ , and did some modification so that it works with the xprofile field, precisely gender in buddyboss and I have only male and female.

    
    // Modifies members loop args to filter out users of same gender.
    	public function filter_args( $args ) {
    		// do not filter if user is not logged in, or is super admin or we are inside dashboard.
    		if ( ! is_user_logged_in() || is_super_admin() || ( is_admin() && ! defined( 'DOING_AJAX' ) ) ) {
    			return $args;
    		}
    
    		$opposite_gender = $this->get_opposite_gender( bp_loggedin_user_id() );
    		$jlw_gender_field = xprofile_get_field( bp_get_xprofile_gender_type_field_id() );
    		if ( $opposite_gender ) {
    			$args[$xprofile_query] = $opposite_gender;
    		}
    		return $args;
    
    	}
    
    	// Restricts access to user profile.
    	// Only allows profile owner, user of opposite gender or site admins to view.
    	public function check_access() {
    		if ( ! is_user_logged_in() || ! bp_is_user() || bp_is_my_profile() || is_super_admin() ) {
    			return;
    		}
    
    		$user_gender = $this->get_user_gender( bp_loggedin_user_id() );
    		$displayed_user_gender = $this->get_user_gender( bp_displayed_user_id() );
    
    		// do not allow access for same gender.
    		if ( $displayed_user_gender === $user_gender ) {
    			bp_core_add_message( __( 'Access denied.', 'yym-helper' ) );
    			bp_core_redirect( bp_loggedin_user_domain() );
    		}
    	}
    
    	// Get user gender
    	private function get_user_gender( $user_id ) {
    		return xprofile_get_field_data( bp_get_xprofile_gender_type_field_id(), $user_id );
    	}
    
    	// Finds the opposite gender
    	private function get_opposite_gender( $user_id ) {
    
    		$user_gender = $this->get_user_gender( $user_id );
    
    		if ( empty( $user_gender ) ) {
    			return null;
    		}
    
    		if ( $user_gender === 'his_Male' ) {
    			return 'her_Female';
    		} elseif ( $user_gender === 'her_Female' ) {
    			return 'his_Male';
    		}
    
    		return null;
    	}
    

    Now the code only works if a member profile is visited, and will redirect back if it is the same gender, but on the member directory it doesn’t work. All the members are still showing.

    I tried to dig a bit into it, but it turns out that I am not a developer to figure it out.

    I feel the problem is here
    $args['member_type'] = $opposite_gender;
    replaced by
    $args[$xprofile_query] = $opposite_gender;
    still it doesn’t work; and then I discover this https://www.buddyboss.com/resources/reference/functions/bp_xprofile_add_xprofile_query_to_user_query/ , but don’t know how to use it.

    Some help please.
    Thanks in advance

    Hi Brajesh,

    Thanks a lot for the response, this is really a great forum.
    The code works well on my local host, but is not working on my live server, however, I think it is caching issue, so I am going to give it some time to take effect, and will definitely let you know when it finally works.

    Once again, thank you very much.

    Hi Catherine,
    Thank you for the reply.
    I am glad that it worked on your local setup.

    Not sure why it is not working on the live server, is there any other plugin using xprofile_query? That could be the reason.

    Regards

    Hi Brajesh,
    It was actually caching issue, now it is also working on my live server.
    Just to know, what is I want to do the XProfile Query with additional 1 or 2 more xprofile field(s).
    How do I add them?

    Thanks for all the assistance

    Hi Catherine,
    Thank you.

    I am glad that it worked.

    You can change this

    
    $query->query_vars['xprofile_query'] = array(
    	array(
    		'field'   => bp_get_xprofile_gender_type_field_id(), // field id or name.
    		'value'   => $opposite_gender,
    		'compare' => '=',
    	),
    );
    
    

    with something like this.

    
    
    $query->query_vars['xprofile_query'] = array(
    	array(
    		'field'   => bp_get_xprofile_gender_type_field_id(), // field id or name.
    		'value'   => $opposite_gender,
    		'compare' => '=',
    	),
    	array(
    		'field'   => 'your_field_id', // field id or name.
    		'value'   => 'the value',
    		'compare' => '=', // your compare operator.
    	),
    
    );
    
    

    You can add as many conditions as you need but I will recommend to be cautious. Xprofile query is not efficient and if you put 4-5 xprofile query clauses, it may cause database load issues. I have seen the issue on a site with moderate number of users couple of years ago.

    Hi Brajesh,
    I will take your advise.
    I just wanted to know. Perhaps in the nearer future I may have a need for that.

    Thank you very much for the assistance; and also thanks to you and the BuddyDev team for considering my appeal on the duplicated topic and deleting one.

    I think this topic very much now resolved.
    Once again, thank you very much.
