#4126 reopened enhancement

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

Reported by: sooskriszta Owned by:
Milestone: Future Release Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 1.5.4
Component: Template Pack Keywords:


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"

Change History (10)

Actually, it currently also shows:

  1. Join time/freshness

There should be an option to turn #3 off.

  • Component changed from Groups to Theme
  • Milestone Awaiting Review deleted
  • Resolution set to invalid
  • Severity changed from major to normal
  • Status changed from new to closed

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.

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.

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"
