    Hey Moshe,

    What change did you try to make for the Friends plugin? and also what was the issue you had with the Friends plugin to begin with?

    Do you have a backup? I'd recommend restoring a backup from before the issue then we can help try and fix the original issue you had :slight_smile:

    To speed things up, could you send in your cPanel too? This is optional at this point, but sounds like we may need to check your files/db so sending it in now will save us from having to ask for it later.

    You can send that privately through our contact form:

    Select "I have a different question" for your topic - this and the subject line ensure that it gets assigned to me.

    Send in:

    Subject: "Attn: Tyler Postle"
    -WordPress admin username
    -WordPress admin password
    -login url
    -cPanel credentials (login url/username/password)
    -link back to this thread for reference
    -any other relevant urls

    **If you keep support access active then no need to send in wp-admin

    Look forward to hearing back!

    Hi Tyler,

    Thank you for the response.

    Apparently, it wasn't because of the SQL. I got it fixed.

    Although, I have no idea how to use Friends plugin, since I added the widget to the sidebar and nothing shows.

    I don't know if there are any short codes, or anything else that needs to be done.

    Thank you,

    Hi @info4729,

    Hope you are doing good today :slight_smile:

    I am glad to know the SQL issue is fixed and you website is now back.

    Yes, we do have Friends widget that you can add in sidebar and will see your friends list when you are online.

    However most of the stuff can be done from admin dashboard for example find friends, make friend requests, accept or reject request.

    You can also use it with other plugins like Messaging for private messages and Chat for one on one Live chat with your friends.

    Hope that helps! Feel free to post a reply if you need further assistance :slight_smile:
    Cheers, Sajid
