Add Personalized Messages To BuddyPress Friend Requests

Add Personalized Messages To BuddyPress Friend Requests

Today’s tip is something that could benefit friendship interactions in any BuddyPress community. Just last week, BuddyPress developer Brajesh Singh released a new plugin. The BuddyPress Extended Friendship Request plugin takes friendship requests to the next level by supplementing the “Add Friend” button with a bit of personalization.

Once installed, this plugin causes a click on the “Add Friend” button to pop up a little message window, enabling a user to send a message along with the friendship request.

Here’s a screenshot of the plugin in action:

A message can remind acquaintances of where they met, bring to memory a personal connection or describe two members’ connection to a friend of a friend. Little tweaks like this can inspire more communication and friendship throughout your community. Many thanks to Brajesh for creating this plugin. Download BuddyPress Extended Friendship Request for free from the WordPress plugin repository.
