Find friends option?

  • Profile photo of kelbycarr


    I may have missed this, but is there any plugin that allows users to search for friends who are already members? For example, pull in their Twitter or Facebook and find anyone who is already registered to add as a friend?

    I am interested in this as well? Does anyone know if this plugin exists?

    It seems like a real no-brainer… otherwise people have to scour the member list (which is tough since I have thousands of members).

    Just curious… would anyone consider developing this and, if so, what would you charge? You could probably make it a paid plugin if you didn’t charge too much too, I am thinking. Would really love to have this option.

    nice idea, am looking for this plugin aswell


    I would be interested in programming this for the community :) Would it just be facebook & twitter or maybe emails, name(first and last) also… It will take me a few weeks to build but im up for the challenge.

    As for money, i would release this as open source so I would not expect someone to foot a bill however if people want to help out they can donate to me like on my other plugin for hiding profile groups to unpaid members.

    Let me know if you guys are still interested.

    @ashley, thank you, thank you so much, have searched everywhere for this plugin but dont see. i know a lot of people are interested. email, twitter and facebook is ok. so that if you want to know your facebook friend who already register with the site , you just enter your facebook email and password and all your facebook friends who registered on that same site will just show. and so as email and twitter aswell


    @naijaping I am coding it now. will be done soon.

    you are the man

    thank uuuuuuuuuu

    This is brilliant news, it’s a much needed functionality.
    If email could import address book from provider (eg. gmail, hotmail contacts etc.) and the user’s local address book (Mac / PC) that would be an absolute winner!
    Really looking forward to whatever you come up with.

    Thank you thank you @elgunvo !!!! I think yeah, being able to check for FB, Twitter and email friends would work great. I would be more than happy to donate to this plugin. :-)
