Excluding some WP basic roles from BP member loop
Hi, I’m trying to keep one or more WP basic roles, specifically editor and author.. out of my Buddypress community but still allow them to use other WP functionality like publishing posts, etc.
In this case scenario, I’m using BP for the main population of users, and Ultimate Member for another category of users who are insulated from the BP community but have a profile that can be viewed by all. UM profiles are celebrities who are present in the site with a profile created through the UM registration system and mainly write blog posts. BP profiles are people who interact with each other and use mainly the BP functionality, no blogging.
Its all working so far but I just haven’t figured out how to get the UM “celebrity” members out of the BP directories, including the alphabetical directory. When the UM member registers, there’s also a BP profile created for him. These should not be available to BP users, only the UM one so I need a way to filter them out completely.
Another big question I have is how to restrict Buddypress pages, directories, groups etc. I’m using Groups by Itthinx for most of my membership functionality.
Thanks for any help anyone can provide.
