    Yes. You can always add a new one. I just want to make sure it’s not a custom menu

    Try creating a menu for the main nav in the admin

    if I create the menu, how do I link the profile menu? The easiest way(without coding) in my opinion is to change the members tab to the profile tab and link the tab to the profile page(www.mysite/members/jane-doe. how do i do this?

    @charlietech if you have custom menu enabled in Appearance > Menus and if it’s only a profile link you want and not the full set links found in the plugin, see http://buddypress.org/community/groups/how-to-and-troubleshooting/forum/topic/adding-dynamic-link-to-main-menu-item/#post-130679

    I put the code at the bottom of the function.php in the parent theme and nothing happened. All i want is to add the profile tab to my original nav menu and its becoming an arduous task. I dont understand why the option isn’t built in the buddypress from the jump(just a check box option) but anyhow, can you suggest something please?

    Glad you finally got it working. What/which dropdown menu are you talking about specifically? In which theme and where is it located (header, sidebar, footer, etc.)?

    Are you using a custom theme? Do you have a menu created in the admin and placed in the primary slot?

    Btw you can always get old versions of plugins by going to WordPress.org and on the plugins page there is a developer tab with links
