BuddyPress Friendship Restrictions

The BuddyPress Friendship Restrictions plugin allows the site administrators to restrict BuddyPress Friendship features.

You can limit who can add friend, who can be added as a friend, how many requests are allowed and how many friends are allowed on your BuddyPress site.

The integration works and requires the BuddyBoss Platform installed and activated on your website.

BuddyBoss Platform is a fork and forge of the BuddyPress plugin and bbPress plugin. Any plugin developed for the BuddyPress and bbPress plugin is supported by the BuddyBoss Platform.

You do NOT need to install the BuddyPress plugin or the bbPress plugin separately. BuddyBoss Platform acts as a replacement for both the plugins.
