I was trying to build a discussion forum. One of the functionality of the forum is users can follow other users.
I came across many post saying about how to make a follow system and none of them were making sense to me.
What I want is that users should be able to follow other users ( no need of follow backing functionality). And also I want to show the list of users following in the profile page.
What I did is that, I the user filed I created a field called followers which is a list of users.
Then the work flow I will post below.
And finally I want to show the list of followers in the user profile page.
Thanks in advance
