Adding Biographical Info to the Buddypress profile page

Postby Poirot » 08 Mar 2013, 16:05

I would like to add an author's Biographical Info to the Buddypress profile page.
I did add [suffusion-the-author display='description'] below the posts, so that works fine on the post pages.
I would like to add the same info to the child-theme/members/single/member-header.php file (at least that is where I think it should be).
So far all I tried did not work ...

I also would like to add click-able fields to the same page for the author's twitter and facebook pages (as enabled at Suffusion Options > Back End > User Profiles).

Another Suffusion lover

Figured out the first bit, this is the code:
Code: Select all
<?php
  $key = 'description';
  $single = true;
  $user_last = get_user_meta( (bp_displayed_user_id()), $key, $single );
  echo '<p>' . $user_last . '</p>';
?>
