#6408 closed enhancement (maybelater)

xprofile admin: user should be redirected to proper field group after deleting a field

If you delete a field, you are redirected back to the Base group, regardless of whether the deleted field was part of the Base group. You should instead be redirected back to the field whence you came.

I remember this working the way you describe, maybe even recently.

#2 @boonebgorges

It works that way for field creation. I didn't check to see if it's ever worked properly.

#3 @johnjamesjacoby

Maybe that's what I'm thinking of; you're probably right.

@johnjamesjacoby @boonebgorges Could either of you point me to the right place to be checking for this one? I'm curious to see if I can figure it out, I am just not sure exactly what section the related code would be in though.

#5 @boonebgorges

@tw2113 Check out xprofile_admin_delete_field(). It looks like we don't run a redirect, but just load xprofile_admin(). This is probably what needs to change.

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.
