June 26, 2014 at 3:40 pm #4876
I am not a good coder. I have two groups in my Profile fields. The base group that is shown at the time of registration can be edited from the sidebar link Edit My Profile as it redirects to edit/group/1…
Can edit/group/2 can also be shown in the same page and what will be the code Or how to add a custom link on sidebar edit my profile which redirects to edit/group/2. Any help will be appreciated

Hi Sumit @samm8158
Can you please explain a little further what you are trying to do – and perhaps provide a screenshot. I am not really clear what you are trying to accomplish. Thanks!June 29, 2014 at 1:52 pm #4879
Since my website is online and to avoid users from facing any problem I have removed the groups so I cannot attach any screenshot but I am explaining it further.
In the profile fields, I have changed the base as Personal Information..It contains fields such as Name, Date of Birth, Country, etc…This shows up on registration page.
In addition to Personal information I added the group to profile fields, viz,work and education…It contains fields such as High School, College etc.
Now when I go to profile after registering, and clicks on edit my profile link on the sidebar just below my avatar, it redirects to http://www.starsclub.co/members/nameofmember/profile/edit/group/1/ …This group is of Personal Information.
I want to add a link to edit http://www.starsclub.co/members/nameofmember/profile/edit/group/2… i.e. how to edit Work and education group of profile…
I believe I was successful in making my point clear to u
Thanks for your quick replyJune 29, 2014 at 3:27 pm #4881
Hi Sumit –
I set up a second profile group on my test site so that I could understand the issue. From what I see, the second group (and third group and fourth, etc.) get displayed in tabs on the edit profile page. Maybe you didn’t notice that you can simply switch tabs to edit the fields associate with the group tab?
I have attached a file that highlights in red the link to group two in the edit profile page dialog.

Hi Summit – That functionality is built into BuddyPress. You can see documentation for it here: http://codex.buddypress.org/buddypress-components-and-features/extended-profiles/
Is it possible that you have installed some plugins that are interfering with the display?
From what I understand it seems that you have disabled the second group. Can you try again (following the documentation, above) and see if you see the tabular display of the groups of profile information. Please note that if you are not logged in or are looking at another member’s profile, the profile fields will be displayed vertically on the page. If you are logged on and click profile, the profile groups should be editable and displayed in tabs across the page.
Also, there is a visibility setting – you can make individual fields visible only to yourself, your friends, logged in members, etc.July 12, 2014 at 11:44 am #4897
Hi Summit – Also, by design, only the first group is shown at registration time, in order to make registration a less tedious task. If you have fields that you absolutely want to be filled in at registration time, you should put in the first group. Subsequent profile groups are filled out later when a member goes to profile page and clicks edit.July 13, 2014 at 9:25 am #4898
Yes Scott I know what you told me in the above replies… I am attaching the snapshots, what is happening wong i could not understand.
Profile edit frontend is also taken when i am logged in…u can see the url its when i click on edit my profile….U can see there is no tab showing up to me…
Profile edit backend u can see that i have another group called test group with one field which is not showing up there….Its group 3 as i have deleted group 2… Now if i change the url from 1 to 3 this group shows up..

Hi Summit –
Have you tried clearing your cache, or using a different browser to see if you get the same results?
If that doesn’t work, maybe it is a conflict with another plugin. I see that you have at least two plugins that related to profile fields. Have you tried temporary disabling? Also, other plugins might cause unexpected results.
Also I noticed that you did not give your group a description. Maybe fill in all the fields in just to eliminate any potential issues. What happens when you add a third group? Does it still not show edit tabs?July 26, 2014 at 12:16 pm #4931
Hi Summit @samm8158 –
Another user of CBOX has noticed the issue about profile groups not appearing in tabs across the page when in edit mode. Please check out this post:
There is a fix included. Thanks.
