Custom Profile Filters for BuddyPress

Allows users to take control of the way that the links in their Buddypress profiles are handled.


The plugin checks each profile for curly brackets and activates if it finds any. If the 'bbPress2 shortcode whitelist' plugin is installed, any shortcodes approved by admin can be used in profile fields. For example, codes from the 'bbPress BBCode' plugin.

You might want to insert a small explanation into your BP profile edit template (/wp-content/bp-themes/[your-member-theme]/profile/edit.php that tells your site's users how to use these brackets. For example:

"Words or phrases in your profile can be linked to the profiles of other members that contain the same phrases. To specify which words or phrases should be linked, add square brackets: e.g. "[b]Life's a beach![/b] I love {icecream} and {swimming}."."

Future features include: admin tab with toggle switch; ability to tweak BP's automatic profile filter (e.g. to parse semi-colon separated lists in addition to commas).
