Plugin Features

Deactivate BP Vendor Dashboard Tabs

You can deactivate tabs if you not need them in your setup

  • Turn off “Products” tab
  • Turn off “Orders” tab
  • Turn off “Settings” tab
  • Turn off “Ratings” tab
  • Turn off “Coupons” tab

Deactivate WordPress Dashboard for Vendors

By default, only vendors will be redirected to their BuddyPress ‘Member Profile Vendors Dashboard’ if they try to access the backend ( /wp-admin ). All other roles will be able to access the wp admin.
In the WC Vendor Pro settings you can set WordPress dashboard to “only administrators can access the /wp-admin/ dashboard”.

Vendor Store Settings

  • Redirect the Vendor Store to the BuddyPress Vendor Profile
  • Integrate into Members Profile as new Tab Select the Product Form

You can deactivate the product tab and use the BuddyForms Members extension to separate the product tab from the vendors dashboard.
If you make the product tab a main nav item it is great for showing all vendor products in the profile.
Normal profile visitors can see the vendor products. The vendor can create and edit and manage his products

Deactivate Links

  • Deactivate the “Visit Store” link in the BuddyPress Members Profile Headder
  • Deactivate the “Profile Links” in the Vendor Shop Product listings and Products Single Views
  • Deactivate the “Sold by” links in the Product Listings and Single View
  • Deactivate the “Contact Vendor” links in the Product Single View
