Secured Member URLs, Auto Follow Feature & More – BuddyBoss Monthly Update

Welcome to the latest BuddyBoss monthly product update! As always, we’re excited to share with you the latest features, enhancements, and bug fixes that we’ve been working on to improve your BuddyBoss experience.

In this month’s product update, we’re excited to share with you some major updates across our BuddyBoss Platform, BuddyBoss Theme, and BuddyBoss App. These updates are designed to enhance your user experience and provide even more options for customization and control.

Let’s dive in and take a closer look at what’s new this month!

BuddyBoss Platform

Last month was a busy and productive time for the BuddyBoss Platform. We are thrilled to share the latest features, enhancements, and bug fixes that we rolled out to our users. Let’s take a moment to reflect on the progress we made in the past month.

What’s New

Secured URLs for Member Profiles

Secured Profile URLs

We are thrilled to announce that our latest BuddyBoss platform update includes a highly requested feature – Secured URLs for Member Profiles. In response to your feedback, we have added a new functionality that enables you to change the identifier used in member profile URLs. 

This means that instead of using a member’s username to create their profile URL (like www.domain.com/members/username), you can now use a unique identifier instead. With this new feature, we have addressed some privacy concerns and given you even more flexibility to customize your site. 

Automatically Follow Members After Connecting

Automatically Follow Members After Connecting

With our latest update, we have introduced an optional setting that allows you to automatically follow members after connecting with them. This is an additional feature that we were requested by some of you after releasing the ‘Notification for new activity posts by someone you’re following‘ feature. This makes it even easier to stay connected with favorite members and keep up with their updates.

Enhancements to The Existing Features

As part of our ongoing efforts to provide a seamless user experience, we’re excited to share some of the enhancements we’ve made to the BuddyBoss platform this month. Here are a couple of notable updates that will take your experience to the next level:

  • We’ve revamped the way we get member login status, resulting in a faster and smoother experience for all our users. We’ve introduced an independent PHP file or an MU Plugin to obtain this information, depending on what’s executable on your server. This means you’ll be able to enjoy a faster and more seamless experience than before.
  • We’ve also made some significant improvements to our Pusher integration, which now allows you to share socket connections when you have multiple browser tabs open. This not only makes things more efficient but also reduces your usage limit from Pusher. 

Bugs Solved This Month


We’ve been hard at work addressing bugs and issues throughout the BuddyBoss platform. Here are some of the notable highlights of our efforts:

  • We have disabled Activity, Activity comment, media description, forums discussion, and reply forms post button when content doesn’t exist or media is not uploaded.
  • Fixed a profile search issue for fields configured as ‘only me’ privacy.
  • Resolved the issue with group documents pagination.
  • Fixed critical issues with settings API when all moderation options are disabled, enhancing security.
  • Fixed the display name issue for newly registered members when the Moderation component is active.
  • Fixed the delete activity post permission issue for group organizers in social groups.
  • Improved performance and security by updating several JS libraries.
  • Improved the Gutenberg block for Zoom by allowing “search and select” for the timezone field.
  • Fixed the group message permission issue when access control is configured for messages.

BuddyBoss Theme

We’ve addressed a few bugs and issues for BuddyBoss Theme to make sure that everything runs smoothly. Firstly, we fixed the sub-menu margin issue in a responsive view for BuddyPanel, ensuring that users can navigate the site with ease. 

Additionally, we resolved an issue with scroll to specific blog comment not working when the header is configured as sticky for Blog, making it easier for users to find the information they need. 

Lastly, we fixed the issues for single lesson and topic sidebar unable to toggle for logged-out users in LearnDash. These bug fixes ensure that BuddyBoss Theme runs as intended, providing an optimal experience for all users.

BuddyBoss App

We spend a lot of time planning and developing innovative features to improve the user experience with our mobile app. Additionally, we are constantly working on enhancing existing features to ensure a seamless experience. Here’s the updates to BuddyBoss mobile app for the month of April.

What’s New

To kick things off, let’s dive into the latest additions to the BuddyBoss app.

GamiPress Support in Access Control

We’re thrilled to announce that you can now restrict access to content based on ranks using GamiPress. With this exciting new feature, you’ll have more control over who can access what on your website. As always, we value your feedback and would love to hear your thoughts on this feature before its official release. Let us know what you think!

 Enhancements to The Existing Features

We have been working on making improvements to the BuddyBoss App that will enhance its performance and modernize the user experience. While some of these changes may not be immediately noticeable, we are confident they will make a significant difference in the overall performance of the app.

  • One of the key improvements we’ve made is to our Push Notifications feature. We’ve implemented better database management and optimized scheduling to ensure improved responsiveness and enhanced security. Additionally, we’ve updated Firebase to use the new v1 API, which provides even better performance and reliability.
  • We’re also excited to introduce our new Icon Set, which now supports a foreground color when using Rounded or Boxes with the Filled icon style. This gives you even more flexibility and customization options for your app.
  • We’ve also added a deeplink for LearnDash Course Categories, making it easier than ever to quickly navigate to specific categories. 
  • Finally, we’ve made improvements to Memberium compatibility, ensuring that restrictions on App Pages are properly blocked.

Bugs Solved This Month


Here are some recent bug fixes that we’ve made to improve your experience on the BuddyBoss platform:

  • We’ve resolved several bugs related to quizzes in LearnDash, ensuring that they work smoothly and without any hiccups.
  • We’ve also fixed an issue that was forcing sub-sites to use the same menu in Multisite, giving you more control and customization options for your website.
