    How to show users who are following me a sidebar widget ?
    How to show a “more” link when there are more than a set of “following” in the sidebar widget?
    How to deny or block someone from following me?
    Thanks for any help.

    Ronia,

    I am looking for a solution to the same problem. Did you figure out a solution?

    No I have not.
    3 things are needed and I visited the dev’s homepage but apparently he is not currently accepting any custom work.
    This plugin is one of the central, if not the central theme of a current social net, which is shifting from just friends to async. befriending/following. The 3 things are:

    1. showing the pics of following and followers in a sidebar widget of the profile being visited, with a more or view full link

    2. ability to deny a follower if I dont like

    3. ability to invite followers and following in groups

    Since the concept of generic friends no longer exists and is dead (now there are frriends lists or circles, and this is *not* same a s groups) buddypress seems to be dated. Followers-Following with the right interface and features can somewhat save the day :)

    I’m working on a project which requires similar features to yours. I’m going to see what I can do to add them, but it might take some time. I’ll post an update here if I can figure it out.

    The plugin now has a widget that show who are following. I’m currently looking for another widget that shows who follow you.

    I’ve coded the widgets (I’d like if someone could check them out because maybe I introduced some bug or security hole. I’m not a dev :))

    Now instead of showing only _my_ followings (and adding followers), the widgets will display the member’s following/followers. (This is because I needed this specific feature, if you want the old behavior just keep the original file)

    You have to repleace `_inc/bp-follow-widgets.php` for this one: http://pastebin.com/z9P98hNZ

    Then go to the widget’s page on the admin dashboard and throw “BP Follow – Following” and “BP Follow – Followers” inside your sidebar.

    I’d like some feedback on this :)
    Cheers !
