  1. Hi,
    I’m interested in purchasing the repeater fields plugin, but have the following questions:
    – Can the group be included in the initial user registry form? In the theme I’m using (sweetdate) only the fields from the first group appear on the registry form, so not from a secondary group.
    – Is the plugin price a one time payment?
    – I programmatically retrieve fields for the profile page, right now using the field name. Can this be done with the repeated fields? (Example of actual code for image from first kid:
    begin code

    end code

    Be glad to hear from you,

    Regards,
    Paul Vollebregt

    1. Hi Paul,
      1) Profile groups will not be included in registration forms at present. We will consider it in our coming updates.
      2) It’s yearly subscription, with 30% renewal discount.
      3) You can retrieve fields values using a function call,e.g. https://pastebin.com/JBjnxDSy

      Feel free to contact us, if you have any further questions.

  2. oops code disappeared, so again without tags:

    begin php code

    $kidimage2 = bp_get_member_profile_data( ‘field=plaatje tweede kind’ );
    //echo $kidimage2;
    if(isset($kidimage2)) {
    echo $kidimage2;
    }
    else {
    echo “”;
    }
    end php code
