    I’m not sure if this is the best answer, but because doing this isn’t a super straight-forward task, I just made a new blog called videos, and changed the links in the header.php files to point to it instead of “/blog”.

    Put this in your bp-custom.php file:

    function blog_to_video($c){

    $c = ‘videos’;

    return $c;

    }

    add_filter(‘bp_blogs_slug’,’blog_to_video’);

    Andy has a filter defined for BP_BLOGS_SLUG.

    Hi Burtadsit

    Thanks for that, but what do I do with it when I make the bp-custom.php and put that code in it? Do I need to do anything else, because it didnt change anything.

    Im not very good with PHP, so sorry about the hassle.

    Thanks

    create a file like bp-custom.php in wp-content/mu-plugins/

    paste into the things burt has told you, and save it.

    i done all that, but nothing changed?

    you can see when u click on videos, the top bar shows /blogs. at the moment the menu name has changed. would this effect the stuff in bp-custom.php?

    Then it’s not executing your bp-custom.php file. You have to have the php script tags ” at the bottom of the file. First and last lines. No blank lines at the top before the first php tag.

    The forums are stripping all lt and gt tags so here goes in phonetic php:

    less-than-symbol question-mark php

    question-mark greater-than-symbol

    Hi sorry, I was on holiday there and only getting back to this.

    I created the PHP file called bp-custom.php and put it in wp-content/mu-plugins/

    I put that code in that file, including the PHP open and close tags, but its still the same!!

    Just to remind anyone reading this from here, all I want to do is change the name of:

    http://www.example.com/blog

    to

    http://www.example.com/videos

    as I am using my blog to show videos only.

    Thanks

    Adam

    Been having a look at it, could it be something to do with the code I was given?

    function blog_to_video($c){

    $c = ‘videos’;

    return $c;

    }

    add_filter(‘bp_blogs_slug’,’blog_to_video’);

    Thats the code I got from here, but should it not be:

    function blog_to_video($c){

    $c = ‘videos’;

    return $c;

    }

    add_filter(‘HOME_BLOG_SLUG’,’blog_to_video’);

    FIXED! I think…

    I went into bp-core.php

    Line 70: define( ‘HOME_BLOG_SLUG’, apply_filters( ‘bp_home_blog_slug’, blog’ ) );

    Changed it to:

    Line 70: define( ‘HOME_BLOG_SLUG’, apply_filters( ‘bp_home_blog_slug’, ‘videos’ ) );

    Works!!!!

    *sigh*
