Hi, thanks for this, works well for me. Tested for the issue highlighted by previous reviewer regarding duplicate usernames and all looks fine; tried to add duplicate username and received error notice as usual. A suggestion, could it be good to add a success notice option and redirect to chosen page upon save? I think it would be a really useful addition, certainly for our use case. 🙂

Does not work with Buddypress. For example it overrides the buddypresss error framework for your edit profile. if you have put an incorrect username or a username that is already taken, buddypress will warn you that ‘that username is already taken’ However with this plugin switched on, that buddypress error is overriden with you must complete profile fields. the user is not aware of the buddypress error, keeps pressing save, does not see the username error as it is overriden by the plugin error forcing you to complete profile fields. For this plugin to work it has to be fully integrated with buddypress and buddypress errors at the moment it is not and hence unusable noticed support hardly responds to support queries, so looks like the support is poor on this plugin that is why i only use plugins that are well established

The plugin is so good and it naturally helps to prevents spammers – I bought BP Auto Active Auto Login too – and of course, a few more plugins today hehe A, not bad, 1 free plugin netted you nearly $90 today LOL but your forum help, and your plugins are so worth their price! Thank you!

Thanks for the plugin Brajesh! I replaced the old Force Profile Photo plugin with this one and it works great so far! One thing though I noticed in the old plugin – and here, you still see the message after photo upload. I customized the message that people need to refresh page after upload of photo which should make it clear that it was successful. I like that it has additional option with profile fields ( and cover ). I am not using it as I have all my required fields specified during sign up with PMPro but I would have used it otherwise.
