    Hi there

    I am using Buddyblog Pro.

    I am trying to allow users to follow other users’ blog posts.

    Could you help me find a solution to this?

    Many thanks
    Daniel

    For more context

    I want to insert a ‘follow’ button on users’ blog posts

    (I should have posted this thread in the premium support area, but I hope it’s fine here)

    Hi Daniel,
    Thank you for the question.

    Can you please tell me what this follow feature for posts is and how it may work?

    Thank you
    Brajesh

    Hi Brajesh

    Currently, I just use BuddyBoss ‘follow’ on a user’s profile. I don’t have a plunging for this.

    Regards
    Daniel

    Thank you. You can add the following snippet in your child theme to show the follow/unfollow button.

    
    // add follow button below single post content.
    add_filter(
    	'the_content',
    	function ( $content ) {
    		if ( is_single() &&
    		 function_exists( 'bp_get_add_follow_button' ) &&
    		 is_user_logged_in() &&
    		 get_current_user_id() != get_the_author_meta( 'ID' )
    		) {
    			$content .= '<div class="author-follow-meta">Follow Author: ' . bp_get_add_follow_button( get_the_author_meta( 'ID' ), get_current_user_id() ) .'</div>';
    		}
    
    		return $content;
    	}
    );
    
    

    Regards
    Brajesh

    Hmm I am having difficulties with this.

    It is showing the button on the single post, however, nothing happens when the button is clicked.

    However, I am trying to put a follow button at the top of the author archive page. How could I do this? Is there a plugin with a button that makes this easy?

    Thanks, your help is greatly appreciated.

    Daniel
