Integrate any Custom Post Type Related Plugin into BuddyPress

In this tutorial You will learn an easy way to integrate any custom post type related plugin with BuddyPress.

With BuddyForms You can create a form for any post type. With the BuddyForms Members extension it's easy to integrate the custom post type form into BuddyPress Member profiles.

If your plugin has his its form fields in the admin edit screen you can add those form fields to your BuddyForms form via the form builder.

This way you can collect informations needed by other plugins with BuddyForms and bring the post management (creation/editing) into the members profile.

For this we need the following plugins to be installed:

BuddyPress

BuddyForms

BuddyForms Members

Finding the Necessary Info for Plugin Form

Depending on the plugin we want to integrate with BuddyPress, we need to find the plugin specific post type and the needed fields and taxonomies the plugin uses.

Pleaser read the following Documentation

If your plugin has a special field type which is not supported by default from BuddyForms you can create a new form element. Please follow-up here: How to create a new form element type
