BP Custom Functionalities


BP Custom Functionalities provides custom functionalities that regular BuddyPress users requires like:

  • Locking BuddyPress for guest users
  • Locking bbPress for guest users
  • Restricting BuddyPress Access Based on Paid Membership Pro Membership Levels
  • Excluding members based on user roles from members directory
  • Private profile – that means one member can not see other members profile

I will add more functionalities but will depend on how many requests came for the same functionality.

How this plugin works?

After activation of the plugin just go to the plugin settings page under settings menu and there select the features you want that’s it.

Will this restrict members with no membership level?

Yes. By the time of plugin activation all the members that do not have any membership level, except site admins, will be restricted from using BuddyPress features.

I am not able to see membership level settings.

You should have Paid Membership pro installed and active. Additionally, there should be atleast one membership level.

Option to exclude role from member directory loop is such obvisous option to have, that is the only plugin to do so ! Thanks for the great job !

I’m currently building a site that needs to have restrictions on user access. Especially to viewing the User Directory. This plugin is a brilliant little thing…lightweight, functional, reliable. It is perhaps something small to have done on sites for other people, but for me…? This was a big need!! And I also needed this plugin to restrict the ability for users to see their OWN profiles. I asked Prashant if there was a way to do this in the support forum here, and he responded back super quick — with a solution that worked!!!! Here’s the support ticket I opened that he resolved super quickly and with the right solution to my need for restricting user access to their own profile: https://wordpress.org/support/topic/restrict-access-to-users-own-profile/ I couldn’t be any happier. He’s a fantastic developer and this plugin is exceptionally useful, lightweight, and reliable. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! <3
