WordPress Development Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for WordPress developers and administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have installed buddypress, I don't see any errors or success message when a person updates their profile details.

Also for some reason it only seems to update admins details, a normal user/subscriber, cannot update its on profile.

has anyone come across this? help please.

I managed to use $bp->template_message this was a bit tricky but then I had to go to bp-xprofile-screens.php just under line 77 I added unset($is_required[1]); to remove the username update, (as this does not need changing) :)

hope someone else, may find this useful.
