Friends System allows for typical social networking functionality, where you can add other registered members as friends. Main advantage of adding other members as friends is that it will allow sharing blog posts with members who are friends alone- a new privacy option will appear while submitting blog posts.
- Once Friends System is enabled:
- On front end, each member profile will have a section named “Friends” displaying the user’s added friends.
- Each member profile will have “Add Friend” button to initiate a friend request to that user.
- Members receiving the friend request will be able to accept or reject it via “Notifications” section:
- Accepted friend requests will list the member profile link under “Friends” section:
