Plugin Review – BuddyPress Profile Visitors

Version Tested: V 1.8

Do you want to inform site members of any other site members who have been visiting their profile? Then BuddyPress Profile Visitors provides a simple way of adding a total visit count together with a drop down display of recent visitors, for some sites, it could be the perfect way of people getting to know each others.


There’s no configurable options so installing this plugin is a simple case of searching for it in the Plugins directory then installing and activating it. On my test system BuddyPress Profile Visitors worked great, on each profile page there was displayed a visitor count and drop down of recent visitors, this could be seen by all that visited the profile.

I think that a plugin of this nature deserves more privacy options, for example you might only want to display the recent visitors drop down and it would be nice to be able to control who can see the visitor counts.

One worry is that this plugin has not been updated in two years so it might be reaching it’s end of life but it still works, so perhaps no need for an update.

I actually really like the simplicity of this plugin I give 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.
