Allow Standard members to send Friend request to private profiles
I've noticed, that standard members can't sent Friend request to members which have set their privacy to: Visible to: "Friends" although their settings for "Who can contact me" is set to Public and Who can post to my Profile is also set to Public. If both members set the Visibility to "Friends only", they can never become friends....
Where can I set the option that standard members can sent Friend request to any member? Or maybe not to members that have set their privacy settings to "Me only" ??
This is not good solution. I think this is new issue after upgrading UNA. We want to keep privacy options as it is but there should still be option to send Friend request to members who have set their privacy to "Friends only" which is currently not possible.
We were considering that it is a fine way when the user with "Friends only" for "Who can see me" field doesn't have the "Friend request" button. But if he/she has the "Public" value for the "Who can contact me" field then other users may leave him the message via Messenger or Conversation apps and arrange about the friendship (or about the final ignore...).
Well it is a very strange...... ( if it is going to stay that way, we need to inform our members about that since it was not like this before upgrade).
Also I strongly believe that this is not a good solutions. If a member set his privacy visible to "Friends only" the button for "Friend request" should be visible so that users who are not on members Friend list can become a friend by sending Friend request.
Yes, you understand correctly. If a member sets his privacy "Visible to: Friends" (other two possibilities are set to Public) then there is no posibility for members that are not "Friend" to send Friend request. And this is NOT OK by my opinion
Further more, if a member sets his privacy "Visible to: Friends only" then the privacy setting "Who can post to my profile: Public" has no effect since non friend can NOT post to that member's profile - they don't see that profile's timeline !!
