    Would it be possible to extend the syncing to custom fields created for users such as Phone Number, Twitter, Facebook, etc. to match new custom Xprofile fields?

    Thx in advance

    @xmginc Not sure I understand. Sync those fields to what? WordPress doesn’t have those fields to sync to.

    Hi Christian, we have created custom fields via functions.php to match xprofile to show in the WP profile.

    @xmginc I think it’s unlikely that this plugin (which is designed for a very specific purpose) will be offering generic syncing capabilities any time soon.

    What I’d recommend is that you look at the events that this plugin listens for and write something similar which targets the fields that you have created. If you think that this plugin can help with this (for example by offering do_action events at appropriate points) then let me know – I’m happy to consider any suggestions.

    Hi Christian, you’re right and being new to Buddypress, I was trying to do something it may not be possible to do for the foreseeable future: the ability to sync users and their xprofiles between 2 sites on separate servers. I was hoping this initial sync might make it easier, but realize it’s redundant. Appreciate your time though – much appreciated!

    @xmginc FWIW, you could do that kind of sync with the help of the REST API.

    Good luck with the project and, as I said, if you have any suggestions for this plugin please go ahead and open a new topic.
