It seems that there is no way to check if a single URL text field, is empty only with text field.

Tested here and I can confirm the problem. Always returns boolean: false.

How are you two testing this, please? Can you share your code?

1st - Create an URL text field.

2nd - Go to your profile and add information in the newly-created URL text field.

3rd - var_dump the field, fetching with bp_profile_field_data( $user_id ).

It returns boolean false, even though there is a content to show.

I am not sure about the original report as we don't have much information, but for @espellcaste's comment above, the call to bp_get_profile_field_data() is wrong. You need to pass array( 'field' => 'field_id_or_name', 'user_id' => 117) to the function, not just a user ID. It doesn't return ALL fields for the user, only the one specified.

@Dianakc We need more information. How exactly are you trying to get the data? Can you share the code? We can re-open this ticket and investigate if you provide more information. thanks.
