Support » Plugin: BP Profile Search » Age range search for members own age…

  • Hi Andrea

    I hope the title makes sense..
    Right now members are able to search other members within an age range.

    I would like a search option, where a member, A, can search other members, who are searching for an age range within member A’s own age.

    The reason why the ‘Age range’ appears as a search mode option in the drop down must be because of the dependency of the Birthdate selector and the value set.

    I can’t figure out wether this is search is actually possible with the plugin as it is, or it requires a new profile field type, or search option?

    Another wish for future search options is a search option for users with or without avatars.

    I guess the challenge here is to distinguish between generic avatars and avatars uploaded by the members and it needs a new avatar profile field.

    There is a profile field option called ‘Image’, which of course is not avatar. But this is not listed in the search fields, does this mean that this field type is not supported by BP Search?

    Best
    Carsten

  • Hi again, please disregard my question about Image field type, as it is useless anyway.

    Hi Carsten,

    Here are my answers to your questions:

    1) This is very difficult to implement as a standard option of BP Profile Search. Another solution could be to build a custom directory of people looking for members of my age, and offer a form to search that directory?

    2) The search for members who uploaded an avatar is in my to-do list, it’s low priority because it’s not simple…

    3) If a custom profile field is not listed in the search fields drop-down, that means that the plugin providing the field type has not registered that type with BP Profile Search.
