BP Profile Search › We don’t see all xProfile fields

Hi There, Thanks for the plugin!
To extend the functionality, we are using the plugin “BuddyPress Xprofile Custom Field Types”. Unfortunately, out of the box, we see only text fields, and the country select menu.
To add the other fields we tried Custom profile field types, but struggled with no success.
The trainers should be able to select by
Continent (5 – Xprofile Custom Field Types “Tag”)
Country (all, list comes from Xprofile)
City (infinite number of “Tag”)
Language (up to about 30 “Tag”)
Coaching Type (up to 5 “Tag”)
can be filtered.
What are we doing wrong?
Many Thanks for your support!

At this time, the BuddyPress Xprofile Custom Field Types plugin registers only a few field types for use with BP Profile Search.
You could ask the BuddyPress Xprofile Custom Field Types team to register the field types you need. Alternatively, you or your developer could register those field types yourself, following this guide:
if you know the internal implementation of those types in BuddyPress Xprofile Custom Field Types.
Of course the last option is to try replacing unregistered field types with standard BuddyPress field types, but I guess that sometimes an optimal replacement could not be available.
