I’ve started migrating users properly and new users will start registering on the site soon.
Here is my register page:
Months ago I edited “Ground” to be called “My Community Name” and added the text to explain. However, I don’t really want it there. Is it mandatory for the member to complete it on Registration? Can I hide it somehow?
I will probably want some fields on there relating to the keyboard models but I don’t want to confuse the new users with their ‘Community Name’. I wish all these nice names, uernames, logins, ‘various names’ were all one thing in WordPress. If it confuses me I’m sure it is going to confuse all my members 🙂
I’m sorry about this, when I started with Buddypress I did a lot of research about it (because it was annoying me) and I read posts where you and other people helped on the Buddypress forums… and I have forgotten everything I read 🙂
Thank you for the question.
BuddyPress needs the display name.
There is a solution to this though.
Here is a tutorial that will help you with it.
Hope that helps.
Thank you for the help and the great article. I implemented it on my site a couple of days ago and it is working really well.
I’m looking forward to part 2, did you write part 2? lol.
Please leave this thread open I will discuss xprofile fields on registration here with you.
For now, do you know how to temporarily remove the second column (Profile Details) on this page?
