Friend request and messages not working on BuddyPress


I'm not able to send (or receive) friend requests on my BuddyPress installation. Messages are not working as well. This issue seems somehow related to my other problem with status updates (, because the two appeared simultaneously.

Any suggestion about how to fix this? I saw that there was an old topic for the same issue, but unresolved.
Thanks for your help.

    Hello Filippo,

    Hope you are well today and thanks for asking us. :slight_smile:

    O your site BuddyPress friend request and messages are not working. But is there some more description which can show me how they are not working or they are behaving on your site ?

    Users are unable to send friend request,
    Users are unable to accept friend request

    same goes for messages too,

    Users are unable to send private messages

    So is above symptoms affecting your site or there is something else ? Would you please provide me bit more information on this along with staff access to your site ? You can grant me staff access to your site via WPMU DEV > Support > Support Staff > Grant Access

    Let me know once you do that.

Thank NAME, for their help.
