    Hi Ravi,

    I’m hoping to make a slight change to the functionality of the code snippet you kindly supplied. As below.

    
    add_action( 'bp_before_friends_loop', function() {
    	add_filter( 'bp_get_add_friend_button', '__return_empty_array' );
    } );
    
    add_action( 'bp_after_friends_loop', function () {
    	remove_filter( 'bp_get_add_friend_button', '__return_empty_array', 10 );
    } );
    

    The reason: the code hides the Add Friend buttons when userA is viewing the friends list of userB. All good, as intended.

    But when userA views his own friends list, the buttons are also hidden, which hides the Cancel Friendship button next to all friends in his list. This makes it awkward for him to cancel friendships, he has to visit the profiles to do so.

    So I want the same functionality, but not when a user is viewing their own friends list.

    I have made changes, shown below. Sorry, I am not a coder, so these are guesses really. This code seems to work as intended on my test site.

    Please could you confirm this is correct code. Only then will I use it on my live site.

    Thanks.

    
    add_action( 'bp_before_friends_loop', function() {
         if (bp_is_my_profile() ){
         return true;
         }
    add_filter( 'bp_get_add_friend_button', '__return_empty_array' );
    } );
    
    add_action( 'bp_after_friends_loop', function () {
         if (bp_is_my_profile() ){
         return true;
         }
    remove_filter( 'bp_get_add_friend_button', '__return_empty_array', 10 );
    } );

    Hi, would it be possible to get a reply? Just need a thumbs up or thumbs down before I put it on my live site.

    If Ravi is not available… Brajesh, please help!

    Your code is fine and will work fine.
