function getCompletionLink($userid)
$result = array();
$result['text']= $this->getDisplayText($userid); //JText::_("ADD ALBUM");
return $result;

/*Put the logic here to count user's completed count for the feature */
public function calculateCount($userid)
$db =& JFactory::getDBO();
$query = 'SELECT COUNT(*) '
. ' FROM ' . $db->nameQuote( 'jxi_community_connection' )
. ' WHERE `connect_from`=' . $db->Quote( $userid )
. ' AND `status`=1';

$db->setQuery( $query );
