A Frustrating Issue with creating profile menu’s resolved
I have been working on this problem for about a week now… Almost impossible to find the correct support on the internet to answer such a simple question that I know already has (from reading) and will pissoff many developers & designers alike who like I are still grasping what is a very big buddypress addon to wordpress (which is big enough in itself to learn in detail).
THE PROBLEM: Cant design a custom home profiles in the single profile due to the way bp_nav works….
THE SOLUTION: Re create your own menu in css html or however else you like to But use this in your theme bp_user_link()
As an additional note when i was playing around with this I was trying all kinds of things… such printr($bp->bp_nav) for future reference for others, in my case that function rendered the current permalink of the profile you are within….
Hope this helps someone, Originally I was considering holding onto this knowledge however I always realise Buddypress is still very young and we need more people to adopt it as the right solution so therefor this information may help the community grow in some areas of navigation within home profile.
The next question which lies ahead is how to stop seeing me viewing your setting menu option (privacy wont allow however I don’t want to display the link)
If anyone has the answer to that feel free to contribute to assist with growing the ability of navigation within profile pages….
