Fdmayestr,

Maybe you just didn't understand the answer to the question because he did answer the question.

If you are on your Online account (and you have made your profile public) you can follow the steps below to add a friend:

Click on the "Profile" tab, then scroll down to the bottom, and where it says "Public Journal" click on the link that says "Public Settings Page"

Once you have clicked on that at the top of the page under where it should say "Welcome, Fdmayestr" or above the "My Public Settings" tab - there is a search box that says "Find a member"

You need to know the person's username that you are searching for, and once you do, type their name into that box...hit Search and your member's page will come up.

On the left there will be a 'Send Friend Request' button - you will need to click on that.

Hope this helps!

Question Adding Friends

I just noticed that you can add friends to your homepage. I have agreed to be weight buddies with a couple of people and was going to contact them directly through My Friends, but I don't know how to add people or request friends. Anyone here know how? I really would like to keep in contact and sometimes these links get long.

I don't know - but I am trying to do the same. I added you as a contact to see what would happen. Let me know what the result was.

I saw a button on someone's public journal page that showed to add them as a friend. But I wasn't sure how to add someone who has their journal set to private. I've just been adding contacts.

No luck. I saw and article in fitpc discussion, but don't quite understand what they were talking about. I'm going to keep trying to figure it out. I really would like to add my weight buddies there. Thanks for trying.

*** Edit: Figured it out. You have to make your journal public. You can put your settings so only friends see or some private, but the journal has to be public to get a friends request. Once you make your journal public, there is find a member search up top of page. It finds the friends that have public journals only. Then once their page comes up, look in the left hand upper corner and their is a button for friends request. Once they accept you as a friend, then you can view whatever logs they set public for friends and also leave notes.

I made my journal public. Thanks for the update Zinal. Please feel free to add me as a friend if you like. You can never have too many of those!

Thanks for the research. I was wondering how to do that. I've made mine public.

Hi I'm new here too. I believe all you have to do is click on the person's name and a drop down menu will fall and it's in there.
I just looked .... again. It's on your home page on the left side. Hope this helps.

Click on My Home Page.
in the search box, type the screename of the person you want to add. If they have a profile viewable to others, it will pop up (otherwise, you can't add them).
When the profile pops up, on the left hand side, it will have their screen name, a link to their fitness journal, and a button that says "Send friend request"

I have just started using the site, but already find it to be great. Adding a friend was the first question I had and I was able to find this answer very easily. the only think I have come across that I would like to see is sugar added to the carb breakdown when i create a custom food.
