                                AND (users.user_id IN(SELECT friends.request FROM friends WHERE friends.friend='".$db->escape_string($userid)."' AND friends.status='1') OR users.user_id IN(SELECT friends.friend FROM friends WHERE friends.request='".$db->escape_string($userid)."' AND friends.status='1'))
