Plugin Review – Simple BuddyPress Profile Privacy

Version tested: 0.7.8

Simple BuddyPress Privacy is a plugin that allows BuddyPress users to choose exactly who can see their profile page. They can choose display it to all (public), logged in members, friends only or just themselves.

Following download and activation, the plugin adds a new setting into the Dashboard>>Settings>>BuddyPress>>Options page that allows the feature to be enabled.

Once enabled users will find a new page at Profile>>Settings>>Privacy:

The plugin seems to work out of the box with no issues, it’s a valuable option for membership sites to offer and enhances the range of options available to BuddyPress admin. I give it 10 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.

Hi, Venutius

It’s a pleasure writing to the founder of the plugin I found closest to easing my stress.

First, I must say that this plugin is a savior. I was looking for a plugin I could use to control who writes a message to who and I found this plugin, however, I noticed it did not show full option (by role type of the receiving end) . I wanted to say Subscriber can write to (Drop down) check all the other roles and leave the excluded role. But, the plugin only shows all site users and admin only. I would be glad if an update will be rolled out to chose which of the roles and not all as a bundle.
