Follow Plugin 👨

Interesting, I discovered another bug. On mobile, the network tab is broken - the right dropdown is blank and cant be tapped to filter Following or Followers,

However, when the link is entered directly (site.com/u/follow/following) rather than going through the navigation, it works.

When you hover over the Followers link button, what URL do you see in the tooltip/status popup (on Firefox this is bottom left)?

The tooltip displays https://site.com/u/Alex/follow/followers

OK at least that is correct … I’ll get back to this when I have some time to spare. Thanks for the info.

Before knowing this Plugin existed, earlier today, I actually requested for a somewhat similar feature here.

… but with a slightly different use case, very much based on admin experiences only.

I would like to see how Stealth mode looks, if it ever gets implemented, and I might even favor a “admin-only” option in this plugin, so that it would be only active for Moderators, and ordinary users would have no sign that it is installed.

For some sites, this “social” kind of “follow” just doesn’t make sense, but the feature can still make sense for other reasons.

Exactly what I’d like to see too!

Alex, the second bug should now be fixed:

Please update and check.

Unfortunately this was hard to track down as was ‘silently’ failing.

As for your first issue, which looks individual to you, I’ll add some error trapping so we can investigate further, I will PM.

That’s the default behavior. You don’t need to follow them or use the plugin for that to happen.

I don’t want to receive such notifications. I dont want to be notified of every single post they make, just when they reply to me, quote me, mention me, etc.

Then don’t follow them. Following them is asking to be notified for every single post they make.

Thats not the point tho

I think I get it, you like the Following discovery list, but don’t want the notifcations?

That’s a piece of development work to add some settings to defeat those, I’m afraid. Might be nice if you could selectively defeat each one.

True, would be nice to add an option like that.
