Overview of the issue

If you use the Profile Types feature from BuddyBoss Platform, you will notice that the profile type tags are not translated in the members’ page or individual member profiles.


Please, make sure of having a full site backup of your site before proceeding.

  • Open …/wp-content/plugins/buddyboss-platform/bp-members/bp-members-functions.php file.
  • Look for line 3941.
  • Replace:
    			if ( $type_obj = bp_get_member_type_object( $type ) ) {
    				$member_type = $type_obj->labels['singular_name'];
  • With:
    			if ( $type_obj = bp_get_member_type_object( $type ) ) {                                        
    				$member_type = $type_obj->labels['singular_name'];                                              
    				$current_language = apply_filters( 'wpml_current_language', NULL );
    				$user_member_type = bp_get_member_type( $user_id );    
    				$post_id = bp_member_type_post_by_type( $user_member_type );                                        
    				$wpml_post_id = apply_filters( 'wpml_object_id', $post_id, 'bp-member-type', true, $current_language );
    				$wpml_post_meta = get_post_meta( $wpml_post_id, '_bp_member_type_label_singular_name', true );
    				$member_type = $wpml_post_meta;
