I have just bought “BuddyPress User Profile Visibility Manager” as Justin Hansen’s one just wasn’t providing what I needed.
However, I still have the same problem with hidden profiles showing in the BuddyPress core widgets as seen here:
While all you’re seeing is tiny thumbnails, I had hoped your plugin would have hidden them.
Is there any chance you can suggest a way to filter them out from showing, or is it just too hard to do? I can understand if it’s a BP problem and there is no way to get around it.

The plugin will filter out any profile which is hidden on directory from the widget list etc. It does not consider a private profile as hidden(We have settings for hiding from directory). The private profiles are considered inaccessible but not hidden.
Please use the directory settings for hiding.
Can you please check that and let me know if that works or not?
Yes, hiding a member from the directory also hides them from the core widgets.
I guess I tried so many combinations I didn’t see that effect.
Sorry to have bothered you.
The location filter works well too, sending people to a page saying they don’t have the permissions to see a profile.
Now all I have to do is redo all my tutorials and screenshots on privacy settings!

I am very sorry to hear that you have to redo your tutorials. I wanted to assist you with the simple privacy plugin but sad to see that did not work.
No, I meant my tutorials using Justin Hansen’s plugin.
Oh, I see what you meant. When you modified your plugin the other week. It helped, but I needed finer control, that Justin’s just didn’t allow.
I also needed a way to default to “hidden” on registration, so the nicename didn’t reveal the username before I got a chance to change it to a Member ID number.
