Extra Configuration


  1. Upload the full directory into your wp-content/plugins directory
  2. Activate the plugin at the plugin administration page
  3. Adjust settings via the WP-Admin BuddyPress XML-RPC page


How does it work?

Allow your BuddyPress members to access certain BuddyPress features via XML-RPC. You may restrict settings on a wp_cap level and per member. Each member will need to generate an apikey (instead of using their password) to connect to your BuddyPress XML-RPC service. You can select which RPC commands to allow as well.

How do members retrieve data?

A client is required to send XML-RPC commands. If you have built a client (from standalone WordPress, iPhone, Firefox extensions, etc) please let me know and I’ll list it here.

What commands and data is returned?

Please see the About page for a full list of commands and expected data.
