Features:-

  • Mailchimp Newsletter Subscription

We strongly believe that the plugins should be simple, lightweight, and fun. All the plugins that we wanted to use had a lot of unnecessary bloats. That's why we wrote our own. You can see it in use on this site.

Q. Can Users filter activity by circles?

Yes, if you have activity filters dropdown available in your theme. Some themes/plugins(such as BuddyBoss disables the dropdown by default, you will need to enable it).

Q. Can circles be used to create privacy activities visible to the specific circle only?

No. Circle does not act as activity privacy. It simply allows you to filter activities by circle.
