I need default WP profile fields even when the BP and Membership registration pages are combined.

Currently, when you combine the BP and Membership registration pages with the Membership add-on, there is no way to use default WordPress user fields in addition to BuddyPress xProfile fields.

First name, last name, nicknames … these are critical.

I had to create a “name” BP xProfile field, which actually is not searchable in the user section. It is causing a lot of issues where my client can’t find his members in the system.

I think it should be a core feature of this add-on to still be able to use critical user fields in the registration process, as after a user registers, there are default ways that WordPress searches them in the database, and we still need this.

Please let me know if this makes sense.

    Hi mediastead,

    Hope you’re well :slight_smile:

    Can you tell me how exactly you are using the integration with BuddyPress?

    When you activate BuddyPress integration add-on you can click on Details… link for further setup and in there choose if you wish to use BuddyPress or Membership 2 registration forms.

    Can you tell me if you have this enabled or not and which exactly form you are referring to, Membership 2 or BuddyPress form?

    Best regards,


Thank NAME, for their help.
