BP | You are blocked

Let your BuddyPress users block other members from contacting them or viewing their profile.

You are blocked! is a very simple plugin for BuddyPress powered websites allowing your users to block other members. Your users can manage their blocked profiles under their profile settings and select to unblock them at any time.

Blocked users will be prevented from:

  • Viewing your profile
  • Send you messages or continue existing conversations
  • Mentioning you using @yourname
  • Add you as a friend
  • See your activities

You will be prevented from:

  • Viewing their profile
  • See them in any member list
  • Send them messages or continue existing conversations
  • Add them as a friend
  • Seeing their activities


  • If you are friends with the person you select to block, your friendship will be terminated


The plugin uses two custom template files that you can override in your theme. Simply create your own template in yourtheme/members/single/ folder.

  • blocking.php is used when someone you have blocked tries to view your profile
  • blocked.php is used when you try and view a profile you block


  • There are no blocking done in groups since groups have their own blocking mechanisms.
  • This plugin only filters BuddyPress features and pages. WordPress related actions such as creating a new post or commenting is not blocked!
