first, your plugin is awesome :D
I am currently planning a guild homepage. I use WordPress 3.2.1 with BuddyPress 1.5. Every user registered has a profile page. On this profile page in the sidebar should be your addon. I want that the user can configure a Server and a Mainchar in there profile. This can be done with Buddypress/profile fields. This profile fields can be fetched with the function:
$mainchar = xprofile_get_field_data("Main Char");
whereas the "Main Char", is the field name. This way is used by another plugin: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/bp-profile-video-widget/
I tried that the &instance[name] is not set in the Widget-Configuration. It should be set via the function xprofile_get_field_data. But the plugin cannot retrieve the data. (the Video Plugin can).
I know this is slightly out of the usual, but maybe you have an idea?
It would be a great way to use your plugin!
