    Hi guys,

    I was wondering how can I give the functionality to a user block another user from sending this user messages/seeing its profile or its photos (using bp-album as well). I have searched a lot and I couldn’t find anything that is up to me. The functionality I’ve found most capable of doing what I need is a feature of a premium plugin that I cannot afford now, and I’m needing it urgently :’{

    I need the functionality of blocking at least the user of sending messages.
    I know a bit of PHP and WP also, I can modify and adaptate codes to attend my needs, but I am really getting stucked at this.

    I really appreciate any help.

    If there is anyway for anyone help me here I would be very grateful.

    Thanks in advance,
    Cheers.

    if you look through my code starting at line 89 you can see where I’ve removed message button and filtered out non friends from sending messages.

    Hey man!

    Thanks for all the support. It is the second time you’ve helped me a lot.

    So, I took a look at your code and I figured out what’s happening. But where the code ends without making it doesn’t work anymore?

    It goes to functions.php, right?

    Thanks a lot.

    you should put any code that is not theme related into bp-custom.php http://codex.buddypress.org/plugindev/bp-custom-php/

    It was basically line 106-141 but it won’t work if you cut and paste. You will need php knowledge to make it work.

    That function will just block a message from getting sent for non friends. You would need to edit it for only certain users.

    It would make a great plugin to allow users to block specific users from getting messaged.
