this can't be done via theme, you can do this only via customization

Thanks Igor. July is OK :-)


Do you have anything on the Todo list for syncing the user profile and x-profile fields, so that buddypress users can update their author profiles?

Hi. This shortcode is not for sidebar. I can add it to Todo list, but
currently we have more priority for other tasks so will be available not
early than July. So, better for you to find some plugins

After searching the theme's source, I found the shortcode for the author profile. :-)

[rh_author_detail_box]

I noticed it doesn't work well in the sidebar and would need some CSS changes I think. An option to put a 'show more' on the profile description/bio would be useful too.

For the syncing user profile fields with the xprofile fields of buddypress, I don't think the plug-in I installed is working too well, so it would be great if the theme would do this.

Finally, I just noticed that the pinterest icon doesn't appear in the author profile. Could this be added please? See attached.

Hi,

I have BuddyPress integrated with the theme and I also have Contributors and have set-up the ReHub Front End Submit.

A few things I noticed that would be a good enhancement to the theme:

  1. Sync the user profile fields to buddy press xprofile so that users can edit their profile in BP and the Author Box is updated.
    I had to install another plug-in to sync the user's description and webpage. It would be great if the theme did this. Also, it would be useful if it also synced the user's social accounts fields, such as 'Url to Facebook', etc.
  2. Add a shortcode and sidebar widget for the Author Box.
    This would be useful when I have guest authors and want to make their profile more visible, such as towards the top of the post (with a shortcode), or in the sidebar.

Thanks,
Gav
