Editing the Userbar

    Hello,

    I’ve been working on building a custom buddypress theme for my install at http://www.prosthes.us and I would like to be able to alter the names of the various options offered in the userbar and optionsbar, so that rather than saying: “activity”, “profile”, “blogs”, “wire”, etc. it reads something like “monitoring”, “identity”, “confessions”, etc. this is for an art project reflecting on the use of design in social networking sites, and I would like to be able to have control over the way in which certain features are labeled. does anyone know where in the php, either in the bp-core file or elsewhere that the echo is defined for the userbar and optionsbar labels? this would be a huge help. thanks

    never mind, i discovered the relevant code under bp_core_add_nav_item in the bp-xprofile.php, bp-friends, etc. … just edited this:

    bp_core_add_nav_item( __(‘Profile’, ‘buddypress’), $bp->friends->slug );

    to this:

    bp_core_add_nav_item( __(‘Identity’, ‘buddypress’), $bp->friends->slug );

    good luck if anyone else has the same issue

    You answered your own question and turned out the lights when you left. 1 brownie point for jeanmeslier! (not redeemable for cash)
