    Hello,

    This is such a great plugin but I encountered what supposes an issue for my purposes:
    I created a custom WP role with almost the same privileges as a site admin, but with no access to wp-admin, can’t install/remove plugins and other administrative tasks. Also, I don’t want this user to manage privacy options so ‘Only site admin can update user settings?’ is enabled; but if I give this user ‘delete users’ capability (I need him to delete accounts, if necessary) then the profile admin tab ‘Profile Privacy’ appears so he can manage those options.
    Is it possible to give this user capability to delete accounts but not to manage privacy options?

    Thanks in advance,
    Javier

    May not be the most elegant solution, but here’s what I came up with:

    
    		
    function my_remove_profile_tabs() {
    	if ( current_user_can( 'activate_plugins' ) ) {
    		return;
    	}
    
    	bp_core_remove_subnav_item( 'settings', 'account-admin-visibility-mode' );
    }
    
    add_action( 'bp_init', 'my_remove_profile_tabs' );
    
    

    Also, do you guys know how to remove items from account menu (top right dropdown)?
    I couldn’t find ‘bp_core_remove_nav_item/bp_core_remove_nav_item’ equivalent. I know CSS can always come to the rescue, but there must be something specific.

    Thanks,
    Javier

    Hi Javier,
    Thank you for posting.

    The problem is when you have enabled it for Admins only, the plugins checks using is_super_admin() function. Since you are on a non multisite WordPress, WordPress checks for ‘delete_users’ capability and if a user has this capability they are assumed super admin, this is why you are seeing it.

    To remove the adminbar menu, you can put the following in your above function

    
    
    global $wp_admin_bar;
    $wp_admin_bar->remove_node( 'my-account-profile-visibility' );
    
    

    Hope that helps.

    Thanks for the clarification, Brajesh.
    Since, in my case, only site admin can activate plugins, I created this reusable function in my BuddyPress hooks plugin:

    
    function custom_is_my_site_admin(){
        current_user_can('activate_plugins');
    }
    

    Seems to work… I couldn’t figure out a better way.
