[Resolved] How to build a link in sidebar to profile search?

  • Hello everyone,

    I hope you can help me! I did not find anything in this particular subject yet.

    Currently the search form is situated in the sidebar (I use the frisco theme). But I would like to have a button with a link (or just a link) in the sidebar which leads to the search form in a new window or page.

    Is there any way I can do that??

    Greets,
    b

    You can put the search form in a page by itself using the shortcode [bp_profile_search_form]

    Then you can link to that page from your sidebar using a standard text widget, or using custom code in your theme.

    Thank you, problem solved!

    Hi,

    I’ve had this shortcode pasted in a page for a while and now it doesn’t seem to work any more. I just get a search button and an edit this page link.

    There has been an upgrade I now have profile search 3.2 with WP 3.5.1

    How can I get the search page up again?

    Thanks

    The plugin upgrade has reset the configuration (this will be fixed in the next plugin release).

    In the meantime you have to configure your search form in the dashboard:

    Users => Profile Search

    Thanks.

    Meaning I have to change something in the programes as well? Not sure how to do that… add code in the template files…

    When will you release the next update?

    You only have to set up the values in the dashboard:

    Users => Profile Search

    The next plugin release is due in a few weeks time.

    I’ve released BP Profile Search 3.3, so you may wish to try the new version.
