Reviews

Great plugin, awesome if you have lots of choices in a Buddypress field

I’m working on a membership site that wanted a profile field (languages) with over 7,000 choices. First I tried adding them as a normal Buddypress select field (using a function to import all the items). It worked, but it took two or three minutes to load a single profile page.

Found this plugin, added Languages as a custom taxonomy, and now it’s good to go! Profile pages load instantly and they get to use their 7,000+ item drop-down list 🙂

plugin is good

I have upload this plugin but but i cant update my profile using when i use custom filed can u piz slove this

Very good and provides a lot of opportunity

This plugin provides a lot of opportunities for you to create any type of community you need or want.

Huge thanks to donmik for integrating the select2 compatibility after reaching out (shout out to Sven as well). Very excited to have that!

The select2 (and maybe soon a repeater field) make a huge difference when building communities that require more fields and variables than your typical profile.

This developer has done a great job at giving others what they need to create their projects. Many, many thanks!!!! I am very appreciative.
