BP-Admin Bar … did I miss something?

    Hey All,

    Maybe I did something wrong somewhere, but it’s called the bp-admin-bar … yet there’s no WP admin links for the site admins. I understand the name is from the administration of each account, I know … but there doesn’t seem to be a way to access the site admin area from anywhere in BP that I can see.

    I was going to hack the widget to add a link for site admin (if you are an admin of course) but I thought I should check with you guys and see if maybe I have something set wrong or I’m missing a setting somewhere.

    Thanks

    Ok so I started from scratch with WPMU this time …

    But it seems like overkill for what I need, I prefer to have my users just post on the main blog. Is there a way to get the admin bar links to work like the do in MU (minus the Create a Blog link) so that users can go straight to the admin panel and post?

    If a “Member” types wp-admin into the browser bar they can access the panel and post, I just need to know if theres a way to add that functionality to the admin bar? Or maybe is there a plugin that does this?

    Thanks

    I was able to use the article above and the Capability Manger plugin http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/capsman/ to create a very nice to accomplish exactly what I wanted.

    Using the WP install as opposed to MU I now have a Blog menu that allows Members (now with the role of Authors) to add, edit, and manage comments on the main blog.

    Very nice, works exactly as I wanted.

    1. Create bp-custom.php and place it in wp-content/plugins/
    2. Add the code below and save.

    (ok well sorry … tried adding the code but it gets all mangled.)

    If you want it I guess send me a message or something :)
