Username availability checker not working

    Sign up for is here: https://www.shootang.com/register/ I’ve just taken over this job.

    I setup a new instance of BuddyBoss locally and noticed that the username field was called signup_username.

    However on the client’s site, the username field is named “field_3” – is it a custom field?
    I’m assuming your plugin looks for a field with a more normal name like signup_username? The client is using BuddyBoss Pro, if that helps? Their fields setup looks like this: https://imgur.com/kBTGHt0

    Is there any way to change the signup username field in my clients site to signup_username, or in your plugin?

    Thank you!

    Thank you for reporting the issue.

    I am sorry, I have no idea why BuddyBoss is treating field_3 as username.
    Still, you can use the following code to enable username checking on it.

    add_filter( 'buddydev_uachecker_selectors', function ( $selector ) {
    	return $selector . ', #field_3';
    } );

    Hope that helps.
