    Hello everyone,

    I love buddy press, but hate the buddypress bar (my account, notification, visit). is there a way i can just added all the options to my site like in the navigation bar?

    also, in groups i dont see where you can create one it just says groups (my groups and invites).

    sorry if this all sounds dumb, just really new and eager to learn.

    thank you in advance for all your help

    To create a new group just visit the groups page (e.g. mywebsite.com/groups) and then click the “Create a Group” button at the top.

    “…is there a way i can just added all the options to my site like in the navigation bar?”

    Have you tried Add-All-Nav-Links-to-BP-Adminbar? You can add your main menu items to the navbar, then reposition it anywhere you like to replace the main nav.

    Ah, I should update that info. It tests and works just fine in BP1.2.6.
    You can see it on a live site here (WP3.0.1 + BP1.2.6): http://buddylite.com/

    Gotcha! Here’s how…
    1- Enable “Hide Main Theme Nav”, “Add WordPress pages/menus”, “Add Buddypress components” and “Scroll with pages”.
    2 – Go to “Sizes & Position” and adjust the “Overall navbar width” to the width of your template.
    3 – Play around with “Vertical offset” and “Horizontal offset” until you get it positioned about where you want it.
    4 – Save settings.
    5 – Now go to “Appearance” > “Menus” and select the WP3 custom menu you want at “BP-WP-Navbar Menu 1″
    6 – Click “Save” at “Theme locations” and “Save menu”
    7 – Check your site and refresh a page.
    8 – Repeat, lather & rinse until you get it “just right”.
    9 – Have fun! :-)

    Ah yes, child themes are one of the MOST important things to learn when it comes to BP.
    Here’s a link to the codex tutorial:
    http://codex.buddypress.org/theme-development/building-a-buddypress-child-theme/

    Could you post a link to your site? I could register there and see if I can help out.

    I just created an account on your site and was able to create a group just the way it’s supposed to be done (the “Create a group” button is in the Groups directory).
    Forums aren’t enabled yet on your site, are they? You can do that in your WP backend under “Buddypress” > “Forums Setup”.

    yeah i tried to fix the forum thing then it gave me issues which i posted in another support topic.

    it tells me files not found

    then i tried to go with the other option and followed the instructions (save files to bb-config.php) still nothing

    In “Community”, I only see Activity, Members and Groups. In “My Account”, I see Activity, Profile, Messages, Friends, Groups, Albums, Settings, Logout (with appropriate subnavs). The Create a Group button is only seen in the Group directory (where it should be), but you can grab the code from groups/index.php and add it to other templates too if you prefer.
