Support » Plugin: BuddyPress Xprofile Custom Field Types » About image upload and web field

  • Hello and thank you for this great plugin.

    I would like to ask you 2 questions please.

    1. Is there a way to give to the user an answer when his image upload have failed for a reason. Just a simple answer. That would be a more user friendly experience.

    2. Is it possible the output of the web field with the url to not have the http:// in the text but only the text that i set in the url www_mysite_com. Could i hide it with css somehow?

    Thank you for your time.

    Thank you for using the.

    1. Please do let me know are you using the image field on the registration page?.
    2. I have tested a custom URL field on my development server and it is working as expected by stripping https or http part from the URL i.e. will replace with

    Hello @raviousprime and thank you for your support.

    1. I am using the image upload field not on the registration page, but in profile section. When a user is uploading an image that is more than the size limit, there is no error notification for that. A simple default error would be nice.

    2. When i paste some url, buddypress by default adds also the https:// and this applies also in the label text. I had to manually add in the class-field-type-web.php of the plugin on line 77

    public static function display_filter( $field_value, $field_id = '' ) {
    		$str = preg_replace('#(^https?:\/\/(w{3}\.)?)|(\/$)#', '', $field_value);
    		$link   = strip_tags( $str );
    		$target = self::get_link_target( $field_id ) ? 'target="_blank"' : '';
    		return sprintf( '<a href="%1$s" rel="nofollow" %3$s>%2$s</a>', esc_url( $field_value ), esc_html( $link ), $target );

    so that i can get as an output text label .

    Maybe you could add this in the future.
