Membership + BuddyPress Customization / Something Different

I'm working on building a site for my local chamber of commerce which requires membership subscriptions and ultimately a member directory which publicly shows all current members, their business, and basic contact information.

The chamber's old site did not use Membership Pro but I feel it's an overall better plugin. However, I'm struggling getting the directory to look the way I'd like and I'm questioning if this is even the right set of plugins for the job.

My question is similar to the last question here (https://premium.wpmudev.org/forums/topic/membership-site-and-user-directory).

Fields I need to add:
Industry
Logo
Business Address / Number

How I want it to look: (doesn't have to be 100% the same, just an idea..)
http://torrancechamber.com/member-directory/

Is this possible with these plugins? If no, what else should I be looking at?

Best,

    Hey @Sean, Michael here! :slight_smile:

    This'd require the creation of a custom members loop template (to show only active members in Membership 2 Pro, as well as the displaying of profile fields from BuddyPress), and the use of BuddyPress's Extended Profile functionality (for the profile fields).

    Now, this is only a start, but if you were to create profile fields with the names you mentioned, and you were to insert the members-loop.php template inside the attached .zip to:

    /wp-content/themes/name-of-theme/buddypress/members/

    You should see a members loop that only contains members who have a membership, that displays the fields inside of BuddyPress.

    Should you want to tweak it further though, or should your theme not want to play nice with it, I'd advise having one of our Pros dig into this more:

    Hope this helps! :slight_smile:
