    Hi Brajesh,

    I’m using the BuddyPress Xprofile Custom Field Types plugin. When using a text field, is there a way to limit characters? Thank you.

    Hi Joy,
    Thank you for the question.

    Our plugin does not offer any limit/restrictions of xprofile fields. It adds new field types.

    You can use BuddyPress Advance Xprofile field plugin to achieve your goal.

    Thank you for your response. It doesn’t look like that plugin is supported anymore – forum posts suggests that the character limit is not working either.

    Hi Joy,
    I am sorry to hear about that. We may provide some code but it will need you to specify field ids, will that be fine?

    Regards

    Wow, thank you so much for working on that! However, it’s actually words limit – I was looking for character limit. Can this be adjusted please?

    Hello Joy,

    This code offers character limits instead of word limits in code I have used words in place of character. Please it a try and let me know if it works or not.

    Note: Please change field IDs and threshold values in the function ‘buddydev_get_words_threshold_value’ as per your site.

    Regards
    Ravi
