Here is a brief idea about the ))FriendsNetwork((

General Description

The Friendship Network is a system where we may ask our fellow TW users to be part of our direct contacts. Helping to create a connected community.

Key Function and sub-features

Allows members to request communication. If the request is answered then you will be added to the persons' Friends list.

  • A new menu "Community" is created, with the correct perms this allows you to see the member list.
  • A sub menu "Friendship Network" takes you to your friend list.
  • Posts by your friends will have a friend icon
  • At the users profile there is a “This user is your friend“ note.
  • What else does it do?

Case Studies

This feature is now here at


Of course as could be expected the IE experience gave me some problems. This error was when I tried to connect to the "Community" link in the menu. This did work in Mozilla saying permissions denied, as I had not set the new perms up yet.

The XML page cannot be displayed

Cannot view XML input using XSL style sheet. Please correct the error and then click the Refresh button, or try again later.
Only one top level element is allowed in an XML document. Error processing resource ''. Line 2, Position 2
<b>Notice</b>: Undefined variable: tiki_p_list_users in <b>/home/xxxxx/public_html/tikiwikiwise/tiki-list_users.php</b> on line <b>13</b><br />


Work Around

For months I had the same problem mention above, "The XML page cannot be displayed"....

I found a workaround here:
It said "Go to the General preferences and settings page and uncheck Use gzipped output you will correct the ..... problem." I did this and I no longer have that problem.
