Hi John:

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.

Jeff
