Plugin Review – BuddyPress Xprofile Custom Image Field
BuddyPress Xprofile Custom Image Field is a plugin that adds an image selector to the range of profile fields available to BuddyPress. When installed, it allows for users to add images to their BuddyPress Extended Profile.
Installation is simple – download and activate. Once activated a new Custom Field Type is added to the Admin>>Users>>Profile Fields page of Image and once selected then users are able to use it to upload an image from their local PC into their profile.
The uploaded image is stored in a subdirectory of wp-content/uploads/profiles.
Of course once you have the image in the users profile, you will need to do something with it, which ususally means additional customisation but that’s the name of the game with a lot of additional Xprofile fields – they provide you with a starter for ten, to allow you to more easily create your own custom solutions.
I give this plugin 10 out of 10, it is simple and does exactly what it says without fuss.
