Add Country Selection List to your BuddyPress Profile & Registration Page


Add Country List in BuddyPress Profile & Registration Page

In this tutorial I will show you how you can easily add a Country list, as shown in the image above to your BuddyPress User Extended Profiles or Wordpress Registration Page using BuddyPress.

1. First head over to Github & download the following code: http://bit.ly/2f0xk7X.

As you must have noticed in the comments, in the Github page of the above code; you may have to add the following line of code just before the foreach loop at line number 222; which is basically, you are initializing the value of $i to 1. 

 $i = 1;  //

Copy the above code and add it to your 'bp-custom.php' file. If this file already exists in your site then it should be located at 'wp-contents/plugins/bp-custom.php'; else you have to create it and place it at the aforementioned location. You can read more about 'bp-custom.php' file here: http://bit.ly/2y3IQak. There you will be able to understand why it's best to add the above code in your 'bp-custom.php' file and not in your theme's 'function.php' file.

Now, open the following link to access the Country List. Suppose, your site name is www.example.com, then you will have to enter: http://www.example.com/wp-admin/users.php?page=bp-profile-setup. You should now be able to view a Country List field as shown in the image below:

NOTE:
 - Once you are able to view the Country List in your Profile Fields page you may remove the above code from your 'bp-custom.php' file, else your 'bp_xprofile_fields' table, which is the table that stores the above country list might go on getting unnecessarily populated with the all the above 193 country names.
- Only edit your field after removing the above code from your bp-custom.php file for aforementioned reasons.
- If you would like to have the Delete option for this field in your Profile Fields Admin Page, then  change line 14 as below:
 'can_delete'   => true,  

- Likewise you can also alter the value of the 'name' and 'description' fields in the code itself.
