Hello everyone, this topic is for those who want to have an already populated country list to user xprofile fields instead of adding one by one.

Just edit the child theme file “functions.php” and paste the following code:

COPY CODE
/*
If you are using BP 2.1+, this will insert a Country selectbox.
Add the function to bp-custom.php and then visit .../wp-admin/users.php?page=bp-profile-setup
Remove this function after the field is created.
*/

function bp_add_custom_country_list() {
 
  if ( !xprofile_get_field_id_from_name('Country') && 'bp-profile-setup' == $_GET['page'] ) {
 
		$country_list_args = array(
		       'field_group_id'  => 1,
		       'name'            => 'Country',
		       'description'	 => 'Please select your country',
		       'can_delete'      => true,
		       'field_order' 	 => 2,
		       'is_required'     => false,
		       'type'            => 'selectbox',
		       'order_by'	 => 'custom'
