How the change the default display of custom profile fields (withou linking, that is)?)

Hi,

How can I change the default display of custom fields in member profile? If I add new fields (in a new group) from admin / Profile Fields, it shows up correctly in the theme, but linked to the search page. I want to remove the links and maybe use some styling too.

Where are the templates for that part?

Thank you

    Hey @dragos_roua,

    Just looked into this for you. This template is stored here:members/single/profile/profile-loop.php

    However, the search links are actually put in by BuddyPress itself. You can have them disabled by adding the following line of code inside of a plugin, or within your theme's functions.php

    remove_filter( 'bp_get_the_profile_field_value','xprofile_filter_link_profile_data', 9, 2 );

    That should do it! Let me know if you need any further assistance with this.

    Best regards, Alexander Rohmann

    I would start by taking a look at the function that I suggested removing
    "xprofile_filter_link_profile_data" you can find it here:

    bp-xprofile-filter.php line 156

    You could modify that code directly. Or if you wanted to avoid modifying BuddyPress directly, you could copy that function and name it something else like "custom_xprofile_filter_link_profile_data" and include it in another plugin or your theme.

    Then you could still remove the filter that uses the old function, and add a filter that uses your replacement. It should all work the same way, except now you've overridden the function and can make changes as needed.
