Plugin Review – BP Required Field Notification

Version Tested: V 1.0.0

BP Required Field Notification is a BuddyPress plugin that prevents members from accessing the site until they have filled in any required fields within their profile.

Whilst required fields are normally enforced during registration, there are times when the site administrator may choose to add new required fields or change an optional field to required. Normally if you do this there is no way to force your existing members to fill out those new required fields. BP Required Field Notification will ensure that all members fill out those fields before they are able to access the rest of the site.

Installation is simply a case of installing and activating the plugin, once that is done there are no other settings required.

Once activated, BP Required Field Notification detects any empty required fields for a user at the point of logging in or otherwise accessing the site. If there is at least one uncompleted field then the member will be redirected to their Edit Profile page and a banner will be displayed informing them that they need to complete those fields in order to continue.

Overall I give this plugin 10 out of 10, it is simple and behaves exactly as expected.

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.
