It’s confusing to me whether the user profiles from wordpress are used with the Links extension. I have a directory plugin now that requires me or the member to add their information all over again (new picture, bio, etc) and I was looking for something that will take their existing info in their profile and display it nicely, as in the Tile plus theme.
At first I thought that the Links extension will work that way, but then other things I read make me think it won’t.
So will it require my members to add their info again, or will this take their existing profile info and use it.
Sorry, but Link does not use the user profile info, it link that data in Connections to a user. Unfortunately I am not aware of a directory plugin which uses the user profile as the source data. What might be a work around is to export your user data to a CSV file which can then be imported into Connections. Then when your users login, they could maintain their profile info within Connections.
Hope that helps!
