Block, Suspend, Report for BuddyPress


Block, Suspend, Report for BuddyPress is a must-have plugin for EVERY BuddyPress installation.

For a full list of features, documentation, screenshots and videos, head to the plugin page.

Each tool is explained further below.


The Block tool allows your members to block another member. They simply click on a ‘block’ button, either on another member’s profile, or on the member list. Once blocked, neither member can send a message to the other. Each member’s profile pages become inaccessible, and display a simple message. Neither can view each other’s activity updates, or replies, and neither can send a friend request to one another.

  • A simple solution to deal with disputes between members.
  • Prevents escalation of abusive or unacceptable conduct between your members.
  • Lets your members deal with disputes by themselves, saving you time.


The Suspend tool allows you, as an administrator, to suspend a member. Available only to administrators is a ‘suspend’ button on your member’s profiles, the member directory, and the admin users screen. Once clicked by you, all of that member’s sessions are terminated, and they will be unable to log back in, instead seeing a custom message explaining the situation.

  • Quickly deals with members who have breached your acceptable standards policies.
  • Allows you to disable an account – until now, you would have to delete the account, or mark them as a spammer.
  • Keeps their profile, uploads, messages and other assets ready, should you decide they can return to the site.
  • See all your suspended members from the back end.


Flag inappropriate, abusive, or otherwise unacceptable behaviour to the site administrator. Each member’s profile now incorporates a ‘report’ button. This creates a new report, which administrators can see in the backend. You can specify a report type, similar to social media networks such as Facebook, to designate that report as ‘spam’ or ‘abusive’ and so on. You can set Block, Suspend, Report to email you when a new report is received.

  • Gives your members peace of mind that the site is open to moderation.
  • Allows you to deal with any report in your own time, without having to respond to internal messages or other notifications.
  • Set a threshold to automatically suspend a user when a number of reports are received.
  • Mark new reports as read/unread
  • Mark reports as unsubstantiated
  • See number of unread reports from the menu or the dashboard

Block, Suspend, Report for BuddyPress Pro Edition

The Professional version adds the following features:

  • Premium email support
  • Ability to add custom CSS to match your theme’s styling perfectly
  • Automatically receive new features as they are built
  • A ‘Latest Reports’ box in the dashboard
  • A ‘Most Blocked’ box, showing your site’s worst offenders
  • Integration with Paid Memberships Pro – enable blocking and reporting for certain levels only.

Plus, a super-charged report system:

Activity Updates

Private Messages

Forum Replies
rtMedia Uploads

  • Create your own report types, or edit the default ones.
  • Add your own reports from the backend, ideal for when your members flag content directly to you via a private message or similar.

I'm so happy I found this plugin. We couldn't live without it. It works like a charm and if there would be some issue then Ben is on it immediately. Super duper support! Actually the best support I have experienced among plugin providers. And I have been in contact with quite a few. It feels really great and I absolutely recommend you getting this one. It is essential if you have a Buddyboss/Buddypress site with more users than you can handle without a plugin like this. 🙂

I have a BuddyPress site that will deal have forums and a social area so a report/block plugin is very necessary! I also have Youzer which causes a lot of styling issues. All I had to do was ask and I got quick and fantastic support! My issue was solved right away! I wish all plugins could have this kind of support, my site would be up and running much quicker! Thanks for everything, this is a must-have plugin, I definitely recommend it!!

The plugin is amazing, the customer service is even better. Ben is a great guy and is willing to listen to you, the user, when it comes to adding more features. Give this plugin a try and get comfortable using it now because I know in the future it'll be even better than what it already is. Thanks Ben!
