The Restrictions for BuddyPress plugin helps you add restrictions for the following BuddyPress areas:
- BuddyPress Members directory
- Viewing other BuddyPress profiles
- BuddyPress Group directory
- Single BuddyPress Group page
- Site-wide activity page
The integration works and requires the BuddyBoss Platform installed and activated on your website.
