    Hello PresPhuture,

    Thank you for sharing the screenshot. I have seen the settings and bit surprised that why the code is not working. Can you provide me with some demo details so that I can check Also, post me the code you are using in your ‘bp-custom.php’ file to modify BuddyBlog settings.

    Thank You

    Hi Ravi

    Here is the code I used for buddyblog:

    //For Buddyblog Set Minimum and Maximum Characters for Blog Post
    
    add_filter('bsfep_validate_post','buddyblog_custom_validate_title_content',10,2);
     
    function buddyblog_custom_validate_title_content($is_error,$post_data){
        //if there is already an error, let us return
        if($is_error)
            return $is_error;
         
         
        //otherwise, let us check for the length of the title/contet
        $min_title_length=50;//assuming 50 characters
        $min_content_length=200;//assuming 200 charactes, will include space
         
        $title = trim($post_data['bp_simple_post_title']);
        $content = trim($post_data['bp_simple_post_text']);
       
        //get the form
         $form_id = $post_data['bp_simple_post_form_id'];
         
         $form = bp_get_simple_blog_post_form_by_id($form_id);
         
        if(strlen($title)<$min_title_length){
             
            $form->message=sprintf('Sorry, The title is too short. The title must be atleast %d characters long.',$min_title_length);
            $is_error=true;
            return $is_error;
        }
         
        if(strlen($content)<$min_content_length){
            $form->message=sprintf('Sorry, The content is too short. The post content must be atleast %d characters long.',$min_content_length);
            $is_error=true;
            return $is_error;
             
        }
             
        return $is_error;
    }
    
    //Allow Admin to pick which User blog gets published
    add_filter( 'buddyblog_user_can_publish', 'buddyblog_custom_admin_allow_publishing', 10, 2 );
    function buddyblog_custom_admin_allow_publishing( $can_publish, $user_id ) {
    
    if(user_can( $user_id, 'list_users' ) )
    $can_publish = true;
    return $can_publish;
    }
    
    //Show Categories as dropdown menu
    
    //buddyblog category as dd
    add_filter( 'buddyblog_post_form_settings', 'buddyblog_custom_category_as_dropdoown');
    function buddyblog_custom_category_as_dropdoown( $settings ) {
    
    if( !empty( $settings['tax']['category']))
    $settings['tax']['category']['view_type'] ='dd'; //view is drop down for categories
    
    return $settings;

    function buddydev_filter_buddyblog_form_settings( $settings ) {

    Hello PresPhuture,

    Sorry for the delayed reply and thank you for sharing the screenshots and the code. Actually, it was a bug in our plugin not BuddyBlog but ‘BuddyPress Simple Front-end Post’. There is a new version available on our site with the bug fix. Please download the latest version of the plugin from the following URL

    https://buddydev.com/plugins/bp-simple-front-end-post/

    And let me know. If the issues still persists or fix

    Thank You
    Ravi

    Hi Ravi

    Sorry for the delay in responding. Thanks a million. The update of the plugin BP Simple Frontend Post worked. I’d like to ask one last thing then I’ll mark this topic as resolved. How do I hide buddyblog and the Blog profile link from the contributor and subscriber user. I only would like the author, editor and administrator to be the only users writing articles.

    Regards

    PresPhuture

    Hi PresPhuture,
    Since Ravi seems to be away, I will assist here.,

    Please put the following code in your bp-custom.php

    
    
    /**
     * Only show BuddyBlog tabs if a user is author or above.
     */
    function buddyblog_custom_remove_profile_nav() {
    
    	if ( ! bp_is_user() || user_can( bp_displayed_user_id(), 'publish_posts' ) ) {
    		return;
    	}
    
    	bp_core_remove_nav_item( 'buddyblog' );
    
    }
    
    add_action( 'bp_buddyblog_setup_nav', 'buddyblog_custom_remove_profile_nav' );
    
    /**
     * Remove from adminbar too for BuddyBlog.
     */
    function buddyblog_custom_remove_admin_nav( $nav_items ) {
    
    	if ( ! current_user_can( 'publish_posts' ) ) {
    		$nav_items = array();
    	}
    
    	return $nav_items;
    }
    
    add_filter( 'bp_buddyblog_admin_nav', 'buddyblog_custom_remove_admin_nav' );
    

    You may adjust the capability further if you wnat in future.
