The BuddyPress Bridge is a premium add-on for bbPress Notify (No-Spam) – bbpnns – that lets you integrate bbpnns and its add-ons with BuddyPress. From controlling group notifications to displaying bbpnns add-on user preferences in the BuddyPress Profile screen.

This is where you choose how bbpnns add-on user settings will be shown in BuddyPress. It allows you to choose whether to use BuddyPress’ Extended Profile or not.
Not Using Extended Profiles
This is the simplest setting. You can have the Profile fields appear either at the top of bottom of the Profile Screen.
Enabling Extended Profiles Support
If you choose to enable Extended Profiles Support, you’ll have greater flexibility in the placement of the profile fields in the Profile Screen. It will require, however, that you go to Admin > Users > Profile Fields to set up the placement.
Once you’re in the Profile Fields screen, click the Add New Field button. You’ll be taken to the new field screen.

The first option will notify all members of all groups they have in common with the author.
The second option is handy when multiple groups have access to a given forum and you want everyone to be notified.
Note that these options, if enabled, override bbpnns’ recipient list.
