    Thanks Sarah! While I don’t have an official roadmap for the plugin, I would like to add Member Type support sooner than later.

    If Member Type support would be helpful for anyone else, let me know. The greater the need, the sooner it will happen. :)

    Nice and useful plugin. The only negative thing is the UI. Why does it add a new submenu page instead of extend the existing BuddyPress profile groups editor?

      Good question Pascal (and sorry for the late response). This was a decision made for the client who had many user roles and profile field groups, so this was a better UI for that situation.

    This is a fantastic add-on for BuddyPress, the more when it would support Member Type.

    So please Tanner, if you could make this happen sooner than later, then I would be grateful.

    For now, I must create new WP User Roles, but how could I add a selection menu of this new User Roles at BuddyPress registration?

    I’m very much in need of this solution, so every feedback is very much appreciated.

      One way you could go about this would be to use a plugin like Gravity Forms and use the User Registration add on. There you could use a registration form to handle registering multiple different user roles.

      Honestly, though, user roles is really more of a band aid. Using Member Types would be a better solution and conditional Profile Fields by Member Type will probably be a part of BuddyPress 2.4 (see the trac ticket mentioned by Boone above).

    Is there any way not to just hide the fields, but to exclude them from the search pool of the profile search?
    I’d like to use some fields for saving some sensitive data. And just searching for the data reveals the user whom it belongs. I’d like to disable it, so its just visible (or even hidden for certain accounts), but not searchable.

    Hrm, i’m not seeing any groups except the Base group, in the user’s front-end profile, with or without the above plugin. Is this a problem with my theme? thx!
