#4126 reopened enhancement

Allow admin to select fields to display in user "excerps" on Groups' user list page

At the moment, if you go to a Group and click on Members (e.g. you see

  1. username
  2. profile image

It would be cool if of all the profile fields (including custom fields), the site admin could select which fields to display in that "excerpt"

Actually, it currently also shows:

  1. Join time/freshness

There should be an option to turn #3 off.

At this point in BP-Default's life, we don't want to introduce a screen of theme options, which is where we'd add this type of option. The template for this screen can be customised in your theme, in /groups/single/members.php.

#3 @sooskriszta

Perhaps mark this as Future Release instead of Invalid then?

In any case, I think it's about time that BP had more detailed Admin/Config options.

Ok. We're going to be doing a lot of work to how themes work in BuddyPress 1.7 (fyi we're building 1.6 right now). My current understanding is that BP-Default in 1.7 is going to frozen (no new features) except for any bug fixes -- but the core team hasn't discussed this in detail yet. I've put this in to Future Release milestone for now.

#5 @sooskriszta

Should be part of bundled theme (not BP default)

Is this being considered for the bundled theme in 1.7?

BuddyPress powers a range of communities... from a cribbage club for retired people, to a football club, to a school and to a support group for an illness.

Hence, the admin should decide for her own community what info goes on the cards (member excerpt on member directory page).

In admin panel, perhaps against each field, there should be a flag (checkbox in the UI, boolean flag/column in table) for "display on member cards"

I mildly object to your use of a graphic, without acknowledgement, from one of our premium plugins in a trac ticket.

#13 @sooskriszta

@shanebp I tender apologies without reservation.

I didn't know there was a plugin for this. I found the graphic in a Google Image Search.

#14 @sooskriszta

P.S. Would you consider donating this plugin to the core? This feature should really be a part of the core.

#15 @shanebp

It wouldn't be the first time that one of our ideas made it into core.

But 'donating the plugin' isn't how things work.
The core devs would integrate the concept in a rigorous way and the resulting code would bear little resemblance to our code.

also - our BuddyProfileData plugin is one of our top sellers so I will close by saying that the core devs have many other more pressing matters to attend to :)

#16 @sooskriszta

Good to know.

Out of curiosity, exactly how popular is the Buddy Profile Data plugin?

#17 @sooskriszta

So, anyway, I'm jonesing for this to be in 2.1

#18 @sooskriszta

Instead of BuddyProfileData's admin UI (and architecture), I suggest making this a field property.
