Just one more nudge on this. As this is really important in securing the privacy on my site members.
I was successfully able to set my own profile privacy levels editing it from front end. So I see the bp-x-profile-visibility-levels field in user_meta table with value:
Is there a simple SQL that I can execute to make all users get this field in their user meta and set to this value? Can someone with SQL knowledge help?
Hi there, just nudging to see if there’s a work around or hack in BP code I can do to enforce desired x-profile visibility levels as in my case users need not have an option to choose their visibility levels. So I hope someone can point me in the right direction on how to hardcode the visibility levels for my x-profile fields in the code.
I haven’t tested it on a fresh install and assume the problem is with my instance. May be after the import something got messed up.
But then when new members register, I expect Buddypress should be setting the default profile visibility settings which is not the case.
Any ideas on what could have gone wrong would be really helpful. Thanks.
@bp-help Thanks for reverting back quickly. I did search before I posted and the only one that found similar to my case was https://buddypress.org/support/topic/how-do-i-hide-extended-profile-fileds-from-users/
But I haven’t used the plugin the post mentions about, I did a backend database import by exporting and importing sql.
And I have done all the standard steps I do when something is amiss in WP or BP like deactivating all plugins and reverting to default theme. Yet the problem persists. Further I noticed in my DB that a meta field bp_xprofile_visibility_levels is only set for a handful of users in the users_meta table. Though it being set doesn’t really set the visibility level properly.
