Friend Suggestions for JomSocial Module

Display JomSocial friend suggestions just like Facebook does! Suggestions can be pulled from the database randomly or by matching a profile field with the currently logged-in user.

If set to match a profile field, the module will search for other users with a matching profile field that are not yet friends with the currently logged-in user and display them like Facebook does (in a list that cycles through the suggestions).

The module can also be set to skip searching for a matching profile field and instead just display random JomSocial users that are not yet friends with the currently logged-in user. (If nobody is logged in, the module defaults to just displaying random JomSocial users).

Want to suggest other JomSocial users that live in the same state or have a matching interest as the currently logged-in user? Now you can! Or if you just want to display a set of random users that aren't the current user's friend yet, you can do that too! The user can cycle through the suggestions just like they do on Facebook.

An included CSS file also gives you control of the colors, formatting and fonts.

Includes one install package that installs and works natively with Joomla 1.5, Joomla 1.6 and Joomla 1.7. Works with all versions of JomSocial, including the latest 2.0+ branch.

Changelog:
1.8:
- Tweaks jQuery loading for complete compatibility with Yootheme templates, Widgetkit and ZOO extension.

1.7:
- Fixed Joomla 2.5 and Joomla 3.0 compatibility. Module works with all versions of Joomla 1.5 and above (requires JomSocial installed, of course).
- Updated to load jQuery 1.8+.

1.6:
- Minor bug fix

1.5: Feature updates / Bug fixes
- Merged into one install package for Joomla 1.5, 1.6 & 1.7.
- Added option to filter out suggested users whose accounts have not been activated. Sites that do not require activation after registration or very large sites might want to turn this option off, as it requires a bit more processing time. Most sites won't notice a difference with it on, however.
- Updated to load jQuery 1.6.2.

1.4: Feature updates / Bug fixes
- Included native Joomla 1.6 and Joomla 1.5 versions.
- Tweaked code so module doesn't try to display records of deleted users that JomSocial leaves behind.
- Refixed bug introduced by JomSocial 2.0+ that broke the limiting default avatars option.
- Module can now display several suggestions at one time (up to 5, currently). Previously you had to stack multiple instances of the module. Lame!
- Upgraded module to load jQuery 1.6.1.
- Joomla 1.6 extension update support included in Joomla 1.6 version.
- Minor code tweaks/cleanup.

1.2: Feature updates
- Added module class suffix support (finally!)
- Minor code tweaks/cleanup.

1.1: Bug fixes
- Better SEF support for links.
- Fixed bug where default avatars would not display post JomSocial 2.0.

I purchased this product with great hope, but was sadly disappointed. It just doesn't work and there isn't anyway, it seems, to get support of any kind.

The module takes essential part for the success of one social community like JomSocial! I was looking for a long time for the solution 'add a friend' and I can say, that only this module makes it perfectly good! Thank you!
