Allow your members to select additional privacy settings for who can view their profile and it’s visibility on the directory page.
- Allow users to hide their profile from the directory page. There is an admin setting to allow or deny this setting site wide.
- Allow each Buddypress member to decide which members can see any of their profile tabs.
The options for profile viewing privacy are:
- “Only logged in users”: any visitor that isn’t logged in will be redirected to the registration page.
- “Only friends”: a visitor who is not a friend views a profile they will see a new tab named private giving them an opporunity to become friends with the member.
- “Everyone”: Buddypress functions as if the plugin is not installed.
- Upload the plugin files to the
/wp-content/plugins/buddy-press-profile-privacydirectory, or install the plugin through the WordPress plugins screen directly.
- Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ screen in WordPress
- Are the profiles hidden from site administrators?
No site administrators or super admins can view all profiles regardless of their settings.
- Does this plugin affect hidden profile fields?
No, any profile fields that are hidden will be hidden no matter what the settings are. This plugin is for overall profile privacy.
