Support » Plugin: BP Profile Shortcodes Extra » Shortcode for Extended BP Profile

  • Resolved titusraj


    Thanks, this is a great plugin

    I have added a few additional profile fields and changed the group name (competition history).

    How can I find / create the short code for this?

    I used this
    [bpps_profile_field field=”fieldname” tab=”section”]
    and this
    [bpps_profile_field field=”fieldname” tab=”1”]

    But it returned shortcode is invalid.

    Basically , I want to display the information added to the additional fields by the user.

    I am sure I am doing it wrong ! , any help is appreciated.

    Try the new second option for this shortcode:

    [bpps_profile_field field=”Name” Option=”Two”]

    The new option two setting means you can look up the fild without stating the tab.

    Thank Venu for you help, it is much appreciated.

    Hi Venutius,

    Would you be so kind to give me the exact shortcode for this.

    I added new group called “Podium Places” It is on Tab 5

    I have created a field name called Podiums within the group.

    I have tried various configurations, but I am getting Tab Invalid. The standard short codes work, which means the plugin is working fine.

    Could you try replacing the Tab=”xxx” with option=”Two” in the shortcode, that should work.

    Hello, I too am having trouble getting the shortcodes [bpps_profile_field tab=”Base” field=”Name”] and [bpps_profile_field option=”Two” field=”Name”] to work correctly.

    I created a profile fields group with the default name “Base” that has (primary) next to it. Since the actual name is Base, that is what I used for the tab/section but I get a invalid tab error. I also tried the option two code but I get invalid field. The field name is simply “City” so I had the code stated as: [bpps_profile_field option=”Two” field=”City”] but I sill get invalid field.

    Please advise. Thank you!

    The existing default group is called Base, do you now have two field groups called Base? That may be the cause of the error.

    Marking as resolved



    I am having the excact same issue as above.
    All of standard shortcodes work, but the [bpps_profile_field field=”fieldname” tab=”section”] only comes back with “the tab name is invalid” I have tryed everything. Allso option two. I even created a profile group named “test” with a field named “test” and tryed this shortcode: [bpps_profile_field field=”test” tab=”test”]

    I have a theme called woffice intalled. Could this theme be causing the issue?

    @janmortenmaccom after some playing around I found that the shortcode only worked for me when using single quotes around the parameters.

    [bpps_profile_field field=’test’ tab=’test’]

    I’m not sure why, but hopefully that helps.
