Discuss the plugin on our release post or view the plugin’s detailed documentation here.
The idea is based on @donmik’s plugin. This plugin is a complete rewrite. Some field type do share code with the original plugin. My guess, we are using 20-30% of the code for field types from the original.

In future, we hope to add more fields.

Note: This plugin is not 100% backward compatible
It is very easy to migrate. Should take less than 5 minute. If you are looking to move from the older plugin to this one, please read our migration guide.

Note 2: The Custom taxonomy field does not allow you to categorize users. They allow you to let users select some terms and display the terms on their profile.
It is not intended for classifying user


@donmik for the BuddyPress Xprofile Custom Fields Type from where we adopted the field types in our first version.
In the first version, te plugin brought all the profile fields offered by the currently abandoned The “BuddyPress Xprofile Custom Fields Type” plugin.
