Limiting BuddyPress profiles to new signups or exculding old members

  • 3678531

    I am working on implementing BuddyPress for a college newspaper. Our installation of WPMU includes almost 2,000 user accounts that relate to archived users—reporters who once wrote for us whose WP account exists to display their byline. All of the old user account are held in one blog (archives). I want to ensure that new users are able to begin using BuddyPress without seeing these old names.

    Is it possible to exclude all of the users who only have permissions for the archives blog from BuddyPress? Is it possible to restrict BuddyPress profiles to new sigunups? Is there another way to accomplish this that I haven’t thought of?

    So perhaps this isn’t the best way of doing this, but one way that I found to accomplish this goal: delete unwanted users from the table wp_bp_xprofile_data.

    Yeah, that’s probably a bad idea later on…

    I guess I would have not seen the harm in an archived, no longer active user having an empty BP profile page. Matter of fact, if they didn’t have a display name set, they wouldn’t show up in the members directory anyhow, so they’d technically be invisible until someone clicks their name when viewing one of their archived posts.
