    Hello Brajesh,

    I really like the idea of this plugin but other than curating a list of “friends/whatever” in a circle, what else can be done with it?

    My ideal use for it would be as a mechanism to communicate with my circle members, similar to the the way the BuddyBoss group public/private messaging functions. I don’t see that as a feature in the plugin. Is that correct?

    Having to create a full-blown group just to have access to messaging is overkill. Your plugin hits the sweet spot.

    Hello Brajesh,

    One more observation: on the Members Directory, the Add to Circle button should only be visible/available to the logged in user when that target Member has Connected. If not, that interaction is a bit like stalking. Just an opinion.

    Hi Quint,
    Thank you for the feedback.

    The Circle is like twitter lists/circles. It is like a list of users and the ability to see updates from them if the underlying platform/theme(BuddyPress/BuddyBoss) allows filtering activity.

    That’s why it is behaving in this manner.

    Regards
    Brajesh

    Hello Brajesh,

    Thanks for the explanation. Then, that won’t work for us from a “messaging” standpoint. However, from a curation of “friends,” or whatever categorization they invent, then it fits the bill. And since I have control over notifications, my previous concern has been addressed.

    Thanks for writing it,
    Quint

    Hi Quint,
    Thank you for the reply.

    I am sorry, this was not suited for the message use case.

    Regards
