Introducing BuddyPress Limit Friendship Plugin: Limit Number of Friends or Friendship requests on BuddyPress based social network
It is my pleasure to introduce the BuddyPress Limit Friendship plugin today. As a site owner, you can set the maximum no. of friends a user can have on your social network using this plugin.
After setting a limit, you can select one of the two criteria to limit the friendship.
The criteria are:-
- No. of Existing Friends
- No. of Existing Friends + No. of Pending Friendship Request Sent & Received
When you select the criteria as No. Of existing Friends + Friendship Requests, the plugin will check for both the users that they don't have crossed the limit(The sum of Friendship Requests sent, which is pending; The friendship requests received which is not approved and the total no. of exiting friends is less than the allowed limit for both the users).
This plugin is also compatible with our Extended Friendship request plugin.
Here is an example of what happens when a user tries to add new friend.
The best use case will be to use this plugin in a membership based site and ask users to upgrade account for more friends or to use it as a tool for spam control(Do not allow too many friends quickly).
For now, I have allowed users to accept any pending request they already have even if the limit is over. Please do let me know if you don't want that and I will include it.
Download & Installation:-
I hope that it helps some of you. More plugin are coming next, please do keep visiting
Another awesome plugin! Well done! Thanks once again! 🙂
Thanks Ben. I am glad that you found it useful 🙂
Hi, good plugin. But I think, in order to limit spam, this plugin need the following option:
No. of Friendship Request Sent in a day
So the administrator can limit user that send a lot friendship request.
Apologies for the delayed reply.
There is an existing plugin that already does it.
Hope that helps.
Know I have seen BuddyPress Limit Friendship Request Plugin.
sorry, I missed this comment before replying above. glad you found that 🙂
Hi @sbrashes Thank's for your reply. I have solved this problem with your plugin, but I have a problem with your other plugin (https://buddydev.com/plugins/bp-notify-post-author-blog-comment/).

2. One reply in your page (https://buddydev.com/buddypress/introducing-buddypress-notify-blog-authors-new-blog-comment-plugin/attachment/blog-comment-notification/)
Only I need understand:

(With all my onesty, BuddyPress is a good plugin, but BuddyPress+Yours plugins is a very complete social network. Thank's for your work.)
I was looking at the bp.org post right now. There are a few things I will like to discuss. I will post it there.
Hi @sbrajesh, I bought one month in order to download your plugins. I have installaded:
1. BP Default Email Notification Settings Control
2. BP Friends Limit
3. BuddyPress Limit Friendship Reqest
But if I go to SETTING I only can seen "user notification email setting" ("BP Default Email Notification Settings Control"), and I don't found the other two plugins. Where are installated the other two plugins? If I don't found the other two plugins I can't setting them.
I hope your answer.
Thank's for your answer you sent me in my mail. Now I can seen plugin in dashboard => BuddyPress.
I also want use FACEBOOK CONNECT PLUS, but your plugin only import FIRST NAME, LAST NAME, LINK TO FACEBOOK PROFILE, and don't import BIRTHDAY, FACEBOOK USERNAME, USER HOMETOWN, USER CURRENT LOCATION, etc. etc…
I will open a reply in BUDDYDEV FACEBOOC CONNECT PLUS PAGE, in order to mean a conversation about thi plugin in the correct page.
Thank's for your support.
