    Hi,
    I found this information: https://buddydev.com/support/forums/topic/display-followers-tab-in-members-directory/

    This is what I need but it don’t works in my Buddyboss site. May be I have to change some things.

    Are you able to check this and to give a hint, how I can add a tab with followers in the Buddyboss member directory? That would be great!

    Thanks, kind regads
    Eric

    Hi Eric,
    Thank you for the question.
    I believe you don’t need that snippet in BuddyBoss.

    If you enable follow in BuddyBoss, They should add the menu in your members directory.

    Please check.

    Hi Brajesh,
    Thanks, yes “Following”, means members, the user is following, is already in the Buddyboss enabled, but a tab with “Followers”, means members, who follow the user, is missing. There is only a widget available.
    Therefore would be great, if a tab with Followers could be addded in the members directory.
    Thanks, kind regards
    Eric

    Hi Eric,
    Thank you.

    Please put this code in your bp-custom.php

    
    
    function bp_custom_add_member_follower_scope_filter( $qs, $object ) {
    	// not on the members object? stop now!
    	if ( 'members' !== $object ) {
    		return $qs;
    	}
    
    	// members directory
    	if ( ! bp_is_user() && bp_is_members_directory() ) {
    		$qs_args = bp_parse_args( $qs );
    		// check if members scope is follower before manipulating.
    		if ( isset( $qs_args['scope'] ) && 'follower' === $qs_args['scope'] ) {
    			$qs .= '&include=' . bp_get_follower_ids(
    					array(
    						'user_id' => bp_loggedin_user_id(),
    					)
    				);
    		}
    	}
    
    	return $qs;
    }
    
    add_filter( 'bp_ajax_querystring', 'bp_custom_add_member_follower_scope_filter', 30, 2 );
    
    /**
     * Add a "Following (X)" tab to the members directory.
     *
     * This is so the logged-in user can filter the members directory to only
     * users that the current user is following.
     *
     * @uses bp_follow_total_follow_counts() Get the following/followers counts for a user.
     */
    function bp_custom_follower_add_following_tab() {
    
    	if ( ! is_user_logged_in() ) {
    		return;
    	}
    
        // BuggyBoss has some messed up code, so this won't work.
    	$count = bb_get_followers_count( get_current_user_id() );
    
    	if ( empty( $count ) ) {
    		// return;
    	}
    
        $count = 0 ;// Ask BuddyBoss, not me.
    
    	?>
    
        <li id="members-follower">
            <a href="#"><?php printf( __( 'Followers<span>%d</span>', 'buddypress-followers' ), esc_html( $count ) ) ?></a>
        </li>
    
    	<?php
    }
    
    add_action( 'bp_members_directory_member_types', 'bp_custom_follower_add_following_tab' );
    
    

    It won’t show you the count initially as there is a bug in BuddyBoss, but clicking the tab will update the count and show the followers.

    Regards

    Hi Brajesh,

    Great work, thank you very much, I had been looking for a solution here for so long, very good! I am very grateful to you!

    I see that at the start of the page the counter is (0) and then, by clicking the link the number changes to the correct number.

    You say, that is a Buddyboss bug: please can you tell me more, so that I can address this to Buddyboss? I would like to do that.

    Another question: can I overcome this error with an overwrite template?

    Thanks, kind regards
    Eric

    Hi Eric,
    You are welcome. I am happy it worked partially.

    The problem lies with

    
    bb_get_followers_count() 
    

    function. The function does not return follower count and seems to be named badly. Can you please ask them to provide us with a function that returns the actual count.

    Regards
    Brajesh
