I have wordpress version 5.4 and buddypress version 5.1.2. I am using bbpress, youzer, and buddypress to wordpress full sync.
I had gathered from research that users can private message to other users from the compose screen if they’re not friends, by simply inputting in their username in the input field. But currently the user is only able to send a private message to a friend, rather than any member. How do I open up this functionality so users can find any member in the directory to send a private message?
