    Hi Brendan,
    Thank you for posting. Can you please point me to the plugin you are using to restrict categories. I will need to add compatibility for the specific plugin to make it work together.

    Thank you
    Brajesh

    Hi Brendan,
    There are many I have seen in the past. I don’t have any particular choice. It will be nice to know your preference and provide a way to have it.

    Thank you
    Brajesh

    Hi Brendan,

    Brajesh Sir is away so I am posting here. Please use the following code in your bp-custom.php file
    and let me know if it works or not.

    
    function buddydev_filter_buddyblog_settings( $settings ) {
    
        if ( ! is_user_logged_in() ) {
            return $settings;
        }
    
        // Get the current user in the admin
        $user = new WP_User( get_current_user_id() );
    
        // Get the user role
        $user_cap = $user->roles;
    
        // Get the user login name/ID
        if ( function_exists( 'get_users' ) )
            $user_login = $user->user_nicename;
        elseif ( function_exists( 'get_users_of_blog' ) )
            $user_login = $user->ID;
    
        $defaults = array( 'RestrictCategoriesDefault' );
        // Get selected categories for Roles
        $settings = get_option( 'RestrictCats_options' );
    
        // Get selected categories for Users
        $settings_user = get_option( 'RestrictCats_user_options' );
    
        $user_key = $user_login . '_user_cats';
    
        $term_ids = [];
    
        if ( is_array( $settings_user ) && array_key_exists( $user_key, $settings_user ) && count( $settings_user[ $user_key ] ) > 1 ) {
    
            $settings_user[ $user_key ] = array_values( array_diff( $settings_user[ $user_key ], $defaults ) );
            $user_terms = $settings_user[ $user_key ];
    
            foreach ( $user_terms as $term ) {
                $term_ids[] = get_term_by( 'slug', $term, 'category')->term_id;
            }
    
        } else{
    
            foreach ( $user_cap as $key ) {
    
                if ( is_array( $settings ) && !empty( $settings[ $key . '_cats' ] ) ) {
    
                    $settings[ $key . '_cats' ] = array_values( array_diff( $settings[ $key . '_cats' ], $defaults ) );
                    
                    foreach ( $settings[ $key . '_cats' ] as $category ) {
    
                        $term_ids[] = get_term_by( 'slug', $category, 'category' )->term_id;
    
                    }
    
                }
    
            }
    
        }
    
        $settings['tax'] =  array(
            'category' => array(
                'include' => array_unique( $term_ids ),
                'view_type' => 'checkbox'
            )
        );
    
        return $settings;
    }
    add_filter( 'buddyblog_post_form_settings', 'buddydev_filter_buddyblog_settings' );
    
    

    Thank You
    Ravi

    Hello Brendan,

    It should be in “wp-content/plugins/” directory. If it is not present create one. You can refer following url

    Thank You
    Ravi
