    Due to GDPR regulations a user must get a list of all data he adds to a Buddypress / Buddyboss site. By this I have to ask, how I can add the custom post entries of a user with using Buddyblog Pro to the exported data?

    Here is the information about this: https://developer.wordpress.org/plugins/privacy/adding-the-personal-data-exporter-to-your-plugin/

    Thanks, kind regards

    Hi Eric,
    Thank you for the post.

    BuddyBlog Pro does not create/manage content types. We do allow creating content but the same content can be created via other means(backend).

    For example, a post can be created using BuddyBlog pro or Dashboard->Posts section. If you have GDPR support for your content type(e.g post), that is more than sufficient.

    Speciafically, with BuddyBlog we do not manage creation or content type(post type), we provide a way to add entries to these post types. Our assumption has been that the code providing support for custom content type will handle the personal data export for that type. We are providing just one of the methods of creating content for that specific type.

    As of data erasure, when you delete a user’s account, WordPress will provide you a way to delete the associated content(post type).
