Support » Plugins and Hacks » [Plugin request] Add a user as a friend

  • So, we’re working on a Prologue-inspired theme and would like users to be able to flag other users as friends – could this be a plugin?

    You would then be able to see your online friends in the sidebar and maybe their posts would be highlighted somehow…

    vow, great idea. looking forward

    lol, i can’t build it myself or i would… i was hoping it was already out there already but as far as I can tell there’s nothing existing!

    Are you using buddypress? I’m not very familiar with it, but I believe this functionality exists: http://buddypress.org/components/friends/

    Oh thanks for the link, looks like it’s for WordPress MU though, still might be useful though I guess 🙂

    hello there, just a question: buddypress plugins will work also on a classic wordpress installation or is WPMU required?

    thanks

    I’ve tried Buddypress. But there are two issues with the friends plugin

    1) the other user needs to accept the friendship. This doesn’t seem necessary

    2) it’s only available for WP-MU, not for classic wordpress installation.

    Would it be possible to remove the “accept friend” part of the Buddypress-plugin and then make it compatible with wordpress?

    OR – am I missing something here? Is there already a friends plugin for classic wordpress?

    1) the other user needs to accept the friendship. This doesn’t seem necessary

    I tend to disagree, “online friendship” should be by mutual consent and this option be kept. Less you want to add a lot of ppl to your list and start bombarding them with Spam.

    @gene53: Think of Twitter and the “Follow” functionality. That’s what I’m looking for. You want to “Follow” friends. But you dont want them to approve you.

    I’m looking for such “Follow” functionality and possibility for WordPress too. I’m not trying to advertise, but please check out youthsays.com

    Their user profile page has a follow/unfollow function(then you could know who is following you/followed by you… nice! Works almost like Twitter.

    How to do that?! @_@
