Social Networking Pokes are the way to call someone without sending any message but pinging them with a notification. It’s like when someone needs the attention of the other person and the person will ask him about it later. Facebook introduced it way back in 2007, 2 years later from the initial launch of Facebook. On the other hand, BuddyPress is a community plugin, it does provide you the feature to connect to friends but the poking feature is not there.
Here comes, BuddyPress Poke to rescue. This plugin will add the poke button to the member profiles and sends a notification when someone pokes them. Moreover, it adds a Poke tab in the user’s profile to list all the pokes.
- Poke anyone in the community.
- Poke spamming restriction until the poked user doesn’t poke back.
- Dedicated Poke Tab in member’s profile.
- Poke Notifications
BuddyPress Poke In-Depth Review
Front-End Poke Button
Users will be able to poke other members of the community through the poke button provided by the plugin at members’ profiles.
Poke Spam Restriction
The plugin also provides you the feature to prevent spam poking to a user. If you poke a member then you will not be able to poke again the same person until the person pokes you back. The plugin will display an error.
Poke Tab and Notification
Whenever someone pokes you, you will get a notification about who poked you and will take you to the poke tab located in Your Profile > Activity > Poke.
Poking back and forth is a fun activity among friends and admins who own a BuddyPress community and can very easily integrate this feature without any effort or coding background.
The plugin works great with any theme and is user-friendly. If you have any query about this plugin, feel free to ask in the comment section below. Thanks for Reading.
