Featured Member Widget


The Featured Members Widget is a simple BuddyPress plugin widget that allows you to indicate which BuddyPress members you want to feature (via their unique username). You can feature a single member or multiple members.

It uses core BuddyPress CSS selectors for output formatting. So, the output looks like other standard, core BP widgets. If you want to customize the formatting, you’ll need to add your own CSS. You may need to do this if you’re using a custom theme. If so, you should use the same CSS that positions the other widgets in your theme.
