On custom field types

With BP Profile Search 4.7.5 the selection of search modes moved to the individual field level, partially breaking support for custom profile field types (CPFT).

Version 4.7.8 introduces a new and much simpler interface for CPFT, see the new Custom Field Types page.

The old and now buggy interface will be kept until the end of this year, then will be promptly removed to streamline the code. I hope that the simplicity of the new interface will enable all the CPFT developers to switch quickly, and of course I am available if you have questions or suggestions (please use my Contact page).
