Displays a user’s friends.

This is the basic shortcode that displays a user’s set of friends on the site. From the list, the can choose to “unfriend” or visit that user’s own profile page.


Provided in the Core Plugin.


You can use the global shortcode settings via WPS Pro->Shortcodes in the admin dashboard, or add them to the shortcode as options.


List friends, showing up to 99, and an avatar of size 128px x 128px:

[wps-friends count="10" size="128"]

To display the list of friends for a user, you would put the following shortcode on a WordPress page, setting the maximum number to 100:

[wps-friends count="100"]

To show as a fluid grid, you would use:

[wps-friends layout="grid"]


The following (which shows default values and an example of using the shortcode option) can be set via the admin dashboard (WPS Pro->Shortcodes) or added as options to the shortcode in your WordPress page, post or widget.
