Support » Plugin: Simple BuddyPress Profile Privacy » Very good plugin, has a small issue

  • The plugin works fine and is very useful, as it provides an important aspect that is missing from BuddyPress. There is the issue that José Caldeira pointed out in support, but thankfully he also provides a patch. I’m sure it will be fixed for good in the next update.

    I understand your concern but in all my testing no one can change another user’s settings. When you click save it goes into your profile and saves the settings there.

    You can see them which isn’t good but I would not consider this major nor worthy of admonition and one star. I did reply to the original thread, I’m not sure where the reply went.

    I’ll be releasing an update today that addresses several other issues as well. This has been delayed because I’ve been reworking several areas of the plugin.

    My bad, Fencer, I’m sorry for the misunderstanding. When I first tested your plugin I had the mistaken impression that a visitor gained full control of a user’s profile and could change anything they liked or even delete the whole profile. That’s why I wrote “major security issue”. Fortunately I tested it again more carefully and realized my mistake.

    Admonition is a pretty strong word and if I seemed that harsh, I apologise. As you can see I changed my rating and rewrote the review, just to be sure that it wouldn’t give the wrong impression to anyone. Your plugin is very good, I will use it, and I do appreciate all the work you guys do. No hard feelings I hope and keep up the good work!
