BuddyPress User Circles


The BuddyPress User Circles plugin allows users on BuddyPress based social network to create lists of users, e.g. Close Friends, Family, Colleagues, etc.

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.


  • Allow users to create circles of users(or lists of users).
  • Filter activity by circles.
  • Circle notifications.

And here is a list of all features for site admins:-

  • Limit circle creation by roles.
  • Configure if the circle will be a top-level tab or be managed under the friends component.
  • Restrict who can be added to the circle:- Friends or all members.
  • Control circle privacy.
  • Automatically create default circles for newly registered members.
  • Control notifications for add to circle or remove from the circle.
  • Customize notification emails.

BuddyCircles is most suitable when you want your users to have the ability to create multiple lists of users and optionally follow their activity.


Adding a user to circle:-Social Subscribe Box is a fun-filled way to let your users subscribe to your Mailchimp newsletter on your WordPress site. It also supports linking to your social media profiles(for Facebook, Twitter, Google+ & LinkedIn).


  • Mailchimp Newsletter Subscription
  • Social profile links for Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Google+
  • Completely customizable behavior and appearance(slideout box behavior/appearance)
  • Simple, easy and fun, and lightweight.

We strongly believe that the plugins should be simple, lightweight, and fun. All the plugins that we wanted to use had a lot of unnecessary bloats. That’s why we wrote our own. You can see it in use on this site.
