Exclude Profile Fields in BuddyPress

This is a simple but great little snippet that will exclude profile fields in BuddyPress. We also check to see if the user is an admin if ( !current_user_can('activate_plugins') ) { this way we only exclude for non admins or any roles for that matter. Don't forget to exclude as a comma separated list, 1,2,12,15.

function wps_hide_profile_field( $retval ) {
	if ( bp_is_active( 'xprofile' ) ) :	

	if ( !current_user_can('activate_plugins') ) {		
		$retval['exclude_fields'] = '1,4,14,22';  			
	return $retval;		
add_filter( 'bp_after_has_profile_parse_args', 'wps_hide_profile_field' );
