Restrict Content Pro – BuddyPress Integration

The Restrict Content Pro – BuddyPress Integration plugin creates a seamless connection with your BuddyPress installation. Show user account details in the user’s BuddyPress profile, assign BuddyPress Member Types to individual subscription levels, restrict content by Group membership, and more.

The plugin lets you:

  • Restrict content based on  Member Type and Group Memberships
  • Show subscription details and payment history in the user’s BuddyPress profile settings page
  • Restrict your whole BuddyPress site and redirect users to your login or pricing page
  • Update a user’s Member Type automatically, when a user’s membership is changed
  • Automatically remove a user’s Member Type when their status is changes to “cancelled” or “expired”

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.
