First off, thank you for the cool plugin.
I need something that will allow users to control their BuddPress profile privacy and this is the only one I can find that seems to work.
When the user first logs in an navigates to their Profile > Settings > Privacy Settings tab, it indicates that “Who can view your profile?” is Everyone and that the “Hide my profile from Members Directory is Yes.
These appear to only be the default suggested settings as the fields in the database for actually effecting these settings (bb_hide_directory & bb_profileprivacy) do not yet exist.
The user can in fact be seen in the Members Directory and obviously their profile is viewable to everyone.
Once the user clicks Save, then the fields are created in the db and the settings can effect the view-ability of the user.
On one hand we have a problem if he end loser looks here but doesn’t click, they will never be hidden. I’m not too worried about this, it’s just not as intuitive for the end loser.
The real problem I have is this: if you’ve not created the fields and per-populated them, how can we ever set the desired defaults for users?
I’m asking because I need the users privacy to be Only Friends and Hidden as the defaults and I don’t want the user to have to go turn these on after first login.
i.e. Defaults to privacy and they will go allow others in as they like.
I’m more than willing to offer donations to your favorite adult beverage drinking fund for your efforts. 🙂
