Is there a way to display all status updates from a particular member group in templates irrespective of whether or not they are friends (of the logged-in user)?

There is no built-in way to display all statuses of members in an EE member group. However, you can get this data using the EE query module:

{exp:query sql="SELECT * FROM exp_friends_status AS f 
    JOIN exp_members AS m ON m.member_id = f.member_id
    WHERE f.group_id = 5"}
  {status} by {screen_name}<br />

...where 5 in f.group_id = 5 is the EE member group_id from which you want all the group's member statuses to be displayed.

Note: The above is to display statuses of members within a EE member group, not a Friends Group. For a Friends Group, the query would be different.

  • Thanks, worked like a charm! How can I put an item limit on this though?

  • You would add LIMIT 50 to the query inside the sql="" parameter, where 50 is the maximum number of results you want to display.
