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?
Ok, thank you for the feedback. That’s good to know. The events plugin I’m using is BuddyPress Simple Events Pro. All I really needed to do was to move the events tab up to 2nd position, it was in last – I can adjust the BuddyBoss tabs through their group navigator options, but that’s not the case for a 3rd party plugin. If I assign it “2” it goes to 4th position, if I assign it “1” it goes to 3rd position, if I assign 0 it goes to the back. When I tried making a tab position for the tab in front of it – Discussions – Discussions moved to either 1st or last place, but not 3rd. Feed is set to be 1st and default, and I want to keep it that way. Then when I tried different groups, I actually noticed positions changing between the front 3 tabs, as if there was some randomness at play – maybe that was just cached website data despite refreshing, I don’t know. There’s something strange going on here.
Honestly, I’m ok with where the events tab is now at 3rd position. But I never really did figure out how to have full control over the tab ordering. When I start creating more tab rules to try to order all the tabs in a relative way, it just doesn’t behave in the intended way.
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, I am still having the problem after upgrading the plugin. Buddyboss also upgraded so I hope there aren’t compatibility issues there again. I cleared the groups tabs for this plugin and started over. I tried to move my preexisting 3rd party plugin tab “events” from last order to 2nd order. It went to 4th order. I then tried to create tabs in this plugin for the other existing tabs to see if it would then order relative to each other. So I created a tab for “Discussions” and tried to make that tab go to 3rd order – it went to 1st order … I’ve tried a number of different options and its seems that the number ordering is just not working and I don’t understand what’s going on.
Thank you for the response.
That didn’t work though. I would send you a screen shot but don’t see how to post that here. I took the same steps as I did to make one preexisting tab move, but “activity” is not working for the slug so the plugin still doesn’t seem to be identifying the tab to move it.
An example url of a group on my page with the default group feed/activity tab showing is: http://www.linkup-point.com/groups/snowshoeing
An example url of the tab I moved successfully is http://www.linkup-point.com/groups/snowshoeing/group-events/
