Plugin Review – BP Profile Status

Version Tested: V 1.5.1

BP Profile Status is a BuddyPress plugin that allows site members to set and manage status messages that are displayed on the members profile page within the cover page area.


Installation is simple, there’s no settings to configure so it’s a case of installing and activating the plugin then you can visit your profile in order to set your status.

The plugin adds a new link to the BuddyPress drop down menu of Profile>>Status, this takes you to the Status management page where you can add new status updates, edit old ones and set your current status.


This plugin works great, my only suggestion would be to add a status timeout and add the concept perhaps of a default status.

This plugin works well, it does what it says on the tin so I’m giving it 9 out of 10.

I've been setting up and managing BuddyPress social networks for a few years. I moved from Ning and other platforms and have come to BuddyPress looking to make sites with similar features to them.
