Force Users to Login to View BuddyPress Content

I have a BuddyPress-based website that I needed to require logins for. There are a number of plugins that force people to login to view content, but I couldn’t find one that forces people to login to see BuddyPress content while leaving all other content public.

So, I built this “BuddyPress Force Login” plugin. It requires people to login in order to view all the BuddyPress stuff – forums, groups, profiles, etc.

I would like to submit it to the WordPress repository, so please provide some suggestions for improvement.

UPDATE: I learned that there is also a free…
