Default User Avatar

BuddyPress uses either the mystery man or a Gravatar for users whom had not uploaded a custom image. This option turns off Gravatar and uses a custom image as a default.

Advanced Settings

Root Profiles

BuddyPress profiles are locate after the members slug (/members/). This setting puts profiles at the site root (url.com/username).

Auto Group Join

Normally, when posting activity in a group you do not belong, BuddyPress joins you to the group. This option allows group activity posting without being added to the group.

LDAP Usernames

Some sign on systems have special characters in usernames that WordPress does not allow. This option allows the use of some special characters in usernames.

WYSIWYG Textarea

Recently, BuddyPress added a text editor to the profile fields when editing a profile. This option removes the WYSIWYG editor.

All Members Auto Complete

When creating private messages, BuddyPress will auto search for members in your friend list when you begin to type. This option changes the search from your friends to all site members. Note, if your site is large the search can seem slow.

Profile Fields Auto Link

BuddyPress auto links some profile fields directly to member search to find similar users with same profile field values. This option turns off all fields auto-linking.

User @ Mentions

Type @, followed by user name, links the username to the user, and sends a notification that they were mentioned in that activity item. This option completely removes the linking and notification. Also, it removes the @ username auto-complete.

Ignore Deprecated Code

BuddyPress loads deprecated code for backwards compatibility. Choose this option If you do not need this loaded.

Default: false

Multisite Options

Enable Multiblog

This option does not allow multiple BuddyPress sites on a Multisite Network. The option allows accessing BuddyPress from other sites on an install.

Root Blog ID

BuddyPress runs on one site on a Multisite Network. This option allows you to choose which site. Default is site one.

Default: main site ID
