    I found a few topics about creating a my profile link in the menu. I just want a regular text link though. Is it possible to write in HTML?

    ``< a href ="hxxp://example.com/members/MEMBER_NAME">MyProfile</a>`` ?

    Hi, thanks for your response. That doesn’t work, although that is the kind of solution I’m looking for. I guess it can’t be done without some PHP coding. Could someone explain how to achieve this to me in newb terms? I know a little bit about coding, and I’d be able to put some PHP into my post /page content using a plugin, I just wouldn’t know what to write. Any help would be greatly appreciated :) Thanks!

    if:

    
    <a href="<?php echo bp_loggedin_user_domain(); ?>">Profile</a>
    

    Didn’t work for you the try:

    
    <a href="<?php global $current_user; echo home_url() . '/members/' . $current_user->user_login . '/profile/'; ?>">Profile</a>
    

    Not tested!

    hi @modemlooper can you please explain how i should use the code you mentioned?
    <a href=”<?php echo bp_loggedin_user_domain(); ?>”>Profile</a>

    @trishan1000 — you’d need to put that into a PHP template file in your theme, wherever you need it.

    I’m going to close this topic as it’s about 4 months old and it’s best to create a new topic if you have a new question. Thank you.
