BuddyBoss Platform

Profile Headers

In this tutorial, you will learn how to customize the layout of your member’s profile headers in the BuddyBoss Platform. You can choose to center-align or left-align the profile avatars, and set which profile elements to display or hide for additional information.

You can define the alignment of the profile headers to:

  • Left
  • Centered

You can choose to display the following elements on the profile headers:

  • Online Status
  • Profile Type
    • Available only if Profile Types and Display Profile Types are both enabled.
  • Member Handle
  • Joined Date
  • Last Active
  • Followers
  • Following
  • Social Networks
    • Available only if the ‘Social Networks’ Profile Type field is added in BuddyBoss > Profiles > Profile Fields
    • The element follows the Visibility settings of the ‘Social Networks’ Profile Type

Note: You must have the BuddyBoss Platform Pro (version 1.2.0 and higher) installed and activated on your site to unlock the new Profile Headers feature. 

Customizing the Profile Headers

You can choose the alignment for the profile header and choose the elements to display additional information about your BuddyBoss members. To customize it:
