BP Simple Private

The BP Simple Private is a FREE plugin that allows you to hide your content from non-logged in users.

You can choose to hide Pages, Posts, Custom Post Types, and BuddyPress content such as Activity, Groups, Members, Member Profile Pages, etc.

The integration works and requires the BuddyBoss Platform installed and activated on your website.

BuddyBoss Platform is a fork and forge of the BuddyPress plugin and bbPress plugin. Any plugin developed for the BuddyPress and bbPress plugin is supported by the BuddyBoss Platform.

You do NOT need to install the BuddyPress plugin or the bbPress plugin separately. BuddyBoss Platform acts as a replacement for both the plugins.
