InviteFriends for BuddyPress

Versione alpha del plug-in realizzata da Giovanni Caputo per importare i propri amici su BuddyPress.
Attualmente non è prevista alcuna possibilità di poter invitare amici non ancora iscritti su Buddypress.
L’estensione, attualmente, prevede la realizzazione di un plug-in per Buddypress che permetta di invitare direttamente amici presenti nella lista dei contatti di AOL, Windows Live Messenger, Gmail, Lycos e Yahoo utilizzando un form in cui inserire mail e password.
Inoltre con questa estensione si potranno aggiungere gli amici importando il file CSV dei contatti di Microsoft Outlook Express, Thunderbird, Apple Mail o dalla lista di LinkedIn( dalla pagina Esporta la rubrica, selezionare “Microsoft Outlook (file .CSV)” e clicca su “Esporta).
Infine sarà possibile invitare/aggiungere gli amici già presenti sui più famosi social-network come facebook e twitter utilizzando le API fornite.

N.B.: Attualmente funziona solo l’import da messenger, gMail e Yahoo.

Supportate lo sviluppo con una semplice donazione:


Requisiti

Il server deve permettere l’utilizzo delle funzioni CURL e fsockopen.

Installazione

Decomprimere il file nella cartella /wp-content/mu-plugins.

Dal menu di amministrazione accedere su setting/Invite Friends ed impostare l’indirizzo e-mail dal quale far inviare i messaggi di invito.
Utilizzo
Creare una nuova pagina con lo shortcode: [invitefriends] oppure dalla barra di buddypress:

    appena avro’ un attimo di tempo mi metto a fare qualche test, un trasloco distrugge fisicamente e psicologicamente…

    continua cosi’ Giovanni, e’ un progetto davvero utile 😉

    Am having an issue. I think I have successfully installed the plugin and have edited its settings through the admin screens. But no matter what I do "Invite friends" does not appear in the dropdown.

    What might I be missing?

  9. giocaputo said:

    Hi,
    give me more information to understand issue.
    what is the web url where you have installed InviteFriends Plug-in. What version of buddypress you use?

  10. GibCosta said:

    same for me i have copied the plugin to mu-plugins, installed and activated it, but i don't see it anywhere in the settings or the dropdown, no error message, nothing, no sign of it – i am on WPMU 2.7 & BP RC1

  11. giocaputo said:

    this afternoon i will resolve this problem . sorry

  12. giocaputo said:

    are you using wordpress mu 2.7.1?

    try new version of plugin, 0.5.5

  13. SysRenan said:

    if the user is not registered when being invited, can you make the script send the user to a signup page and hold the values "accept and reject" so when the registration is completed it will apply those values to the new account?

    meaning, if I invite you to my blog, you will get a message asking you to accept or reject, if you click accept you will be sent to a login page, but no information on how to signup, see?

    let me know

    1. Does 0.8 work on bp 1.0.2?
    2. Should we activate or activate sitewide? (should be written in readme)

    I'm using 0.8 on bp 1.0.2 but images don't appear as in screenshots, and I don't see the field on the right where you have to type email address and password for the specified service.

    I always get an error when activating it in one of the possible ways (normal/sitewide)… :-/

  37. Abhinav Sood said:

    Hi. I am trying to use your plugin on a social network that I created using WordPress MU 2.8.2 and BuddyPress 1.0.2 .. But I am not able to get anything working except Gmail and Twitter. I have made the Facebook application as per your guidelines, It opens the application page and displays my website in a frame there. No sign on contacts. Similarly with Yahoo. It requests me to authorize. When I sign into yahoo, accept Terms and click next. It redirects to my site's homepage and does nothing else. I get a fatal error warning if I try MSN.

    Also, if I click on Invites Other Friends after importing twitter contacts, etc. It redirects to some post on my blog! why is it happening. Can you help me regarding the same?

  38. Mikhail said:

    Thanks

    When I activate your plugin, it causes the wp-admin panel CSS not to display everything correctly. Has someone else experienced this problem?
