Having a big issue with this plugin now that required field behaviour in BP has changed.
No idea why BP changed this behaviour but when you set a field to required that offers a drop down to select from, the first option in the dropdown is selected as default.
The fields no longer have a ——— option at the top, which would ommit it from a search, it MAKES YOU select an answer from the dropdown.
This means that the first option is ALWAYS selected on the search form, which means if you have multiple required fields, a search is impossible as the first option in ALL fields is selected by default.
This way you can’t search by just one field, as all have to be selected.
I know this sounds confusing, but if you set up some profile field dropdowns and make them required you’ll see instantly what I mean.
Such a shame, as BP’s behaviour makes this plugin unusable when you have required fields.
Anything that could be done, so that the option to not have a required fields work in this way in the plugin?
Thanks so much for your time!
