    In the process of working on my BuddyPress site (Installing and Removing Plugins, etc.) the options for the user privacy setting totally DISAPPEARED! It also doesn’t show on the Update posting boxes. I don’t know where it went or how to get it back.. any help is appreciated! I am running the most current version of WordPress and Buddypress.

    Not quite sure what you mean for the first one? Privacy setting for xProfile fields?
    And what doesn’t show on the update posting boxes (status updates right?)?

    @mercime Thanks for the quick response. Under a user’s Profile Settings their used to be this page called “Privacy” that allowed a user to pick what privacy setting that is used on Updates by default (Public, Logged In, My Friends, etc.). There also used to be a drop down box under the “Post Update” textbox that allowed per-update privacy settings. Suddenly both of those options are gone.. How do I get them back?

    Well.. after doing a little research and not finding anything about that feature (and also wondering how it was there in the first place?), I was able to find a plugin that does the same thing that I was looking for:

    You must have been mistaken because that was never in the BP core. It was only offered as a plugin. The privacy settings in xprofiles has been there since 1.6 but the activity post privacy was never added to the core and it took BuddyPress Activity Privacy plugin to make that happen. I would like to see this included in the core eventually but that is up to the dev team to decide and if @megainfo supplies a workable patch. If not then hopefully the plugin will continue to be developed as BP matures.
