Support » Plugin: BP Profile Search » Hidden Filter

  • Resolved andreadrago


    Hi Andrea,
    I need to create a search form that searches only through users with a specific custom field value, without this filter being shown or editable.
    Let’s say I have a profile field called “Type”, with a specific set of values (i.e. “Programmer”, “SEO agent”, “Agency”). I’d like a form that searches user by name, region, or other fields, but only through the users that are Programmers. Is it possible?

    I’m new to this plugin, and would like to know if there is a feature like this, or a way to do it differently, since it would be very helpful.

    Thank you very much in advance!

    Hello @andreadrago,

    To get precisely what you need, you can:

    A) Create a custom Members directory
    B) Use your custom directory as the results page for your search form
    C) Add the hidden filters to your custom directory

    For details, please see my tutorial Custom Directories.

    Hello Andrea,
    Thank you very much for the explanation, I did look into that page, but missed the subheading “Add Hidden filter to a Members directory” -.-

    Thank you very much for your prompt response and the good documentation.
    Keep up the good work!
