By default, the platform does not have this option. You can use the following function code to disable comments for a specific user.

Please follow the steps below:

1. Go to Appearance > Theme Editor.

2. Under “Select theme to edit”, choose (BuddyBoss Child/whatever theme is active), then click “Select”.

3. Below Theme Files, select Theme Functions (functions.php).

4. Append the code just before the closing PHP tag “?>”:

add_filter('bp_nouveau_get_activity_entry_buttons', 'remove_comment_activity');
function remove_comment_activity( $return) {
$current_user_id = bbp_get_current_user_id();
$member_type = bp_get_member_type($current_user_id, true);
if($member_type == 'individual'){
unset( $return['activity_conversation'] );
return $return;

5. Click Update File to save the changes.
