I have spent hours and hours trying to get Ajax Search Pro to work with the xprofile fields in BuddyPress. I worked with plugin support as well, and he said the newest version includes user meta data support which I have now instead, and he said it may fix it, but now is unavailable for a couple weeks and I need to make a decision one way or another.
I can't seem to get it to work and I am wondering if it as simple as having the wrong information entered into the custom user meta data field. I have tried so many variations, but maybe I am just missing the proper syntax, so any thoughts would be great. The fields I use are 1-8, so field_1, field_2, etc. See the screenshot for how and where I enter this. It seems like this should be easy to do, but not knowing how user meta data works and adding custom fields I guess my main concern is that data has to live in a specific user table, so there isn't any entry I can put in that will see outside of the default user table.
If that is the case I am wondering about copying the xprofile data to wp user data, but not sure best ways to do that, if smart, or if just too much work and more complexity just to use this plugin. I have looked at various plugins to copy that data over, but none that seemed all that simple and the bigger concern is just one more piece of software to worry about breaking something. Anyway would love some thoughts.
