I’ve searched the forums and have seen a number of threads regarding integration with BBPress forums, but my question is whether the BBPress profile and the UserPro profile are synced (similar to how UserPro overrides the WordPress dashboard profile).
If I click on a username link in a forum on my site now, avatars for my members appear to be consistent across the site/forums, but I’m seeing profile user data from the forums (topics started, etc.). Is this the intended functionality, or should the member profile link in BBPress take you to the UserPro member profile page?
I can see site members getting very confused if it’s not the latter.

member profile link in BBPress take you to the UserPro member profile page?
You need to edit the profile link, to take users to their UserPro profile (one profile by userpro is more elegant I guess 😉 ) So.. if you click on my avatar when I do this reply, it will take you to my userpro profile, not bbpress. This way you should do the integration to at your forum, there are a couple of tutorials about the integration. The userpro API is really clear and you just need to find the dynamic user ID / reply id and grab his permalink that’s all.9 years, 10 months ago Scotm19Participant
I’ve since found this topic in the forums with the bpress template changes:
Seems to work for me now. Is this the most current advice on how to make this work?

Yes, the holy grail of advice is that you need to replace every profile link with: $userpro->permalink( … user id (dynamic) ); aand this will automatically link to userpro profile where ever user even in Buddypress.9 years, 4 months ago Jerry SvenssonParticipant
Hi! Im using a custom bbtheme and Ive been trying to integrate the profiles. My problem is the loop-single-forums template, theres a part that directs to a custom bbpress-functions. I identify the parts that links to the profile, but not sure how to change it. This is the parts:
$output .= bbp_get_user_profile_link( $author_id );
$output .= bbp_get_user_profile_link( bbp_get_forum_last_reply_author_id() );
Oh, it does work on all subforums, its just on the frontpage of the forums I cant get it to work.
