    Hello again!

    This is something I’ve been looking for some time: I want one of my site users to control everything as being a site administrator, but with no access to wp-admin.
    I know I can restrict user roles access to wp-admin, but in this case I need this user to be a site admin (or similar), so he can: edit profiles, edit groups, remove activity… all the things I can do within Buddypress pages as a site administrator.
    May I give an editor those privileges/capabilities?

    Thanks for this great community,
    Javier

    Hi Javier,
    Thank you for posting. Give the user editor role and a custom capability ‘bp_moderate’ and he should be able to moderate almost all things BuddyPress.

    Hope that helps.
    regards
    Brajesh

    Thank you very much, Brajesh.

    Do you recommend adding this kind of hooks to bp-custom.php or to a plugin? I’m doing this in a custom plugin now.

    Thank you,
    Javier

    Hello again,

    Finally what did the trick for me was “manage_options”. Could be ‘bp_moderate’ still not fully functional?

    Thanks
    Javier

    Hi Javier,
    It is mostly a personal preference. If you are just putting small modifications, I will suggest going with bp-custom.php.
    If you are going for more customization and need flexibility, writing a plugin is better option to manage all codes(You can create modules/files for each component specific functionality to keep things managed in the plugin).

    Thanks, Brajesh. I think plugin option is more accurate in this case.

    I have a couple of questions regarding some premium plugins, I posted in the comment section, will it be better if I post those in here in the forums?
