    @modemlooper hi. First of all I’d like to thank you for this plugin :)

    I have a few questions tho:
    1) I have enabled privacy on my activity stream but if I mention an user who’s not a friend of mine he stills sees the mention and gets the notification. Also, the activity update shows up in `/activity`
    2) Could it be possible to adapt the plugin to use the bp-follow plugin ? I’d like to switch from friends to following/followers scheme

    Thank you very much again

    @abysshorror It’s called Bp-PROFILE-privacy for a reason ;) The plugin seems to currently only hide the activity profile page rather than hiding the activity from people.

    Also, while i’m here – just so anyone doesn’t get a shock when 1.6 is released… the plugin author has stated that he is no longer supporting or updating these plugins [Source: http://buddychimp.com/

    @chrisclayton but what would be the point of hiding my activity if it would still be readable by someone I mention (asuming I don’t want him to see it).

    The underlying problem here is that BP doesn’ have (and I couldn’t find any plugin) that will allow me to “block my profile” and allow access only to the people I choose (like Twitter does for instance)

    @abysshorror I know, a proper privacy plugin is something ALOT of users want, including myself – but sadly, this plugin does not achieve that and i don’t think their is an easy way to force the plugin to hide activity… (if it was that easy, we’d already have a real privacy plugin and wouldn’t be having this conversation. lol)

    i remember reading a reply from @modemlooper (though, i might have mis-read it, or something) on his plugin’s forum before he closed it stating that he wasn’t putting proper activity privacy into the plugin because the core devs are supposedly working on a privacy component and it’s something that needs to be in core.

    Yeah, it should be in the core.
    It’s a pitty @modemlooper won’t be updating his plugins but I read what he said and I have to agree on several points.

    Thanks anyway.
