Verified Member for BuddyPress


This plugin will allow you to manually verify your BuddyPress members from the profile edit screen. Verified members will have a twitter-like « verified » badge displayed on the front-end.

A dedicated settings tab allows you to choose where you want to display the badges:
+ Activities
+ Profiles
+ Member Lists (e.g.: member directory)
+ bbPress Forums
+ WordPress Comments and Posts

As well as other settings like the badge color or tooltip.

This plugin is also compatible with BP Better Message

See the plugin in action in our online demo:

This plugin requires BuddyPress.

If you publish a plugin you should consider the support of it, especially if it has bugs

Have installed, activated and it works fine. Its appearing in users profile and members list but not appearing in frontend users list for the same users. In your plugin screenshot, it shows appearing in front-end but not for me. Also is there any way to apply as Badge tag instead of Tick. Can you please advise.

This plugin works great and does exactly what it says it can do. Thanks for putting this out there!

Thank you very much for your plugin and the idea behind. It works really great. One suggestion for you: For now I have to verify each user within its profile separately. Wouldn't it be great just ticking the users in the list I get in backend mode? This makes it much easier to verify a lot of users in less time.
