bp-custom.php vs. functions.php
I am running WP 3.5.2 with BP 1.7.3.
With the update to BP 1.7.3 is bp-custom.php no longer a valid way to make configuration settings changes? I’m asking because I wanted to turn off the buddybar on user login and tried using the bp-custom.php method (http://codex.buddypress.org/developer/customizing/changing-internal-configuration-settings/) and it didn’t work. I followed the codex to the “T,” double-checking and triple-checking to make sure everything was right. Doesn’t work.
But, when I created a functions.php file and put it in my child theme directory with “show_admin_bar(false);” in the file the functionality I am desiring works. I used Buddybar Widget to accompany this function so users can sign on but don’t get the buddybar at the top.
I achieved what I want but is this bp-custom.php method even working? Could it be something with the theme I have? Here’s the site: http://givemeselfesteem.com/
