#579 closed enhancement (maybelater)

Add conditional profile field support

Add conditional profile field support.

Here is an example.

User selects an option from a field that has 3 options.

If option 1 is selected fields 1, 2 and 3 are displayed.

If option 2 is selected fields 4, 5, and 6 are displayed.

If option 3 is selected fields 1, 3 and 6 are displayed.


Here would be a real life example. Say you run a site for people that love the mountains. You have hikers, campers and rock climbers. You would have different profile fields for each type of mountain lover.

Another example would be a site that has couples and singles on the same site. Couples would need to fill out fields for both of them while singles only need to fill out fields for them self only.

I believe support for this is currently going into trunk/1.3.

  • Milestone changed from 1.3 to Future Release

I like this idea (and have built versions of it myself in a more hard-coded way) but it'll take too much design to make it into 1.3.

We're closing this ticket because it has not received any contribution or comments for at least two years. We have decided that it is better to close tickets that are good ideas, which have not gotten (or are unlikely to get) contributions, rather than keep things open indefinitely. This will help us share a more realistic roadmap for BuddyPress with you.

Everyone very much appreciates the time and effort that you spent sharing your idea with us. On behalf of the entire BuddyPress team, thank you.

If you feel strongly that this enhancement should still be added to BuddyPress, and you are able to contribute effort towards it, we encourage you to re-open the ticket, or start a discussion about it in our Slack channel. Please consider that time has proven that good ideas without contributions do not get built.

For more information, see
or find us on Slack, in the #buddypress channel:
