Hi there

You would need to edit bbPress's PHP templates to modify the fields that are displayed for user profiles, it isn't something Toolset can help you with, I'm afraid.

If you have made custom user fields with Types and want to display those via PHP then you can use standard WordPress functions to retrieve the field values to output them, you just need to be aware that Types fields are saved with a 'wpcf-' prefix, so if you have a custom user field "favourite-colour" that would be saved in wp_usermeta with a key of 'wpcf-favourite-colour'.

You can also use the Types API function types_render_usermeta to output fields, as described here:

For more information about editing bbPress templates you would need to consult their documentation: hidden link
