what kind of follower do you need ? Only from within your site or social followres ?
For the first case, check here: https://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/buddypress-follow-me/
how difficult would id be to create one
– huh, depends on you. Read here: https://codex.buddypress.org/developer/plugin-development/creating-a-plugin/
I am already using buddypress follow, where you have to go into a members profile to “follow” them. I just want to make it easier for people to follow other people so I was looking to do the same thing but as a widget in the sidebar.
buddypress followme or buddypress followers ?
The followme plugin integrate a widget. https://plugins.svn.wordpress.org/buddypress-follow-me/trunk/includes/
And on followme description page, you can read:
— Important — If you use Buddypress Followers plugin ( https://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/buddypress-followers/ ), it should be deactivated.
Thanks Chouf1! I was using buddypress followers. I have now uninstalled it and installed buddypress follow me. I see there is a widget for users I am following, but I am looking for one that just displaying the avatar of the user and the “follow” button. This way you don’t have to go into the users profile to follow. It makes it simple and easy for someone to follow someone else.
Looks like I may need a custom widget?
After poking around at the follow me plugin I was able to hardcode avatars and a follow button into my sidebar.

But, I cannot get the correct URL to “follow” or for the button to switch to “unfollow” once you are already following that member.
Any ideas on how to get these working?
