Re: Multiple user types – possible?
Is the permissions plugin the same thing as the privacy component Andy mentions in this thread (post #4)? https://buddypress.org/forums/topic.php?id=39#post-158
I literally just started (i.e. this morning) coding a bare-bones privacy plugin for BP that in essence controls privacy at the profile subgroup level.
A simple radio button array appears in each subgroup’s title bar with options to grant or deny viewing access. It offers the following granular subgroup level of control:
- allow/deny anyone (i.e. globally public or private)
- allow/deny only logged in users
- allow/deny only friends
It’s not much of a privacy filter, but it is a start.
If it is the case that V1.1 will have the first generation of the privacy component, then perhaps I should simply wait. I’m sure the core developers will provide a more powerful (and better) solution than I could.
