BuddyPress Profile Data Control GPL Overview:
BuddyPress Profile Data Control allows you to control the availability of BuddyPress profile Fields as well as the visibility of BuddyPress user profile data based on user roles. You can also restrict who can edit individual profile field data based on user roles.
BuddyPress Profile Data Control GPL Features:-
- Allows site admin to restrict the profile field group’s availability i.e. As a site admin, You can restrict which profile fields group will be available to which user based on their roles. The Base group(First profile field group) can not be restricted.
- Allows site admin to restrict the individual BuddyPress profile field’s availability and visibility to users based on their roles.
- Allows site admin to restrict/limit who can edit individual BuddyPress profile field information based on user roles.
- Allows site admin to specify a default placeholder value for the individual restricted profile field. The placeholder will be shown to the profile visitors if the field is not visible to them.
Note:- No restrictions will be applied to the site administrator role when they are visiting other user’s profiles. In the case of a multisite network, the Network administrator will have no restrictions applied to him. If you apply restrictions to the “Administrator” role, it will only apply to the subsite’s administrators(This use case only applies to multisite).
If the field availability is restricted by Member Types(or Profile Types in the case of BuddyBoss), the plugin will honor that. It will not change field availability if member-type settings hide the field. If a field is available(even with member types), the role based availability can be used to further restrict that.
