Hide Subscriber Users from BuddyPress member Directory

View hide-subscribers.php
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31 32 33 34 35 36 37
function bpdev_exclude_users($qs=false,$object=false){
//list of users to exclude
$excluded_user=join(',',bpdev_get_subscriber_user_ids());//comma separated ids of users whom you want to exclude
if($object!='members')//hide for members only
return $qs;
//check if we are searching for friends list etc?, do not exclude in this case
return $qs;
return $qs;
function bpdev_get_subscriber_user_ids(){
$subscribers= get_users( array( 'role' => 'subscriber' ) );
foreach((array)$subscribers as $subscriber)
return $users;

You can replace the entire bpdev_get_subscriber_user_ids() function, with this single line of code:

$excluded_user = implode(',',get_users('role=subscriber&fields=ID'));

What if you wanted to hide Administrators as well as Subscribers?
