#5612 closed enhancement (duplicate)

Let admin decide which xprofile fields link to search

BuddyPress automatically links all text in user profile fields between commas, e.g. See profile page

In some cases this is pretty cool - if I want to find all female models, I can just click on and that leads me to search results pageő

However, there are cases where links are expected to behave differently, e.g. if I see a phone number linked (+3630/450-01-90 on this profile), I expect there to be a tel: link behind it, not a link to search page for that telephone number

The same would be true for emails (as a user, I'd expect mailto:) and URLs.

Further, sometimes, the linking is just weird and annoying, such as (in the same profile) Célom. Just because something is between commas (or is in the beginning of a paragraph and has a comma after it), does not mean it should be automatically searchable.

With this in mind, it seems best that the admin of the site should have control over which fields shall be clickable to a search results page.

To start off, textarea type xprofile fields may be made non-clickable by default.
