    Hello,

    I would like to display different member profiles for different types of groups. I have 2 groups: faculty and contributor. More accurately i want to disable components like bp Links and group docs wiki for the faculty group; i settled for removing the links to such.

    i thought the best approach would be to check if a member is of a certain group and then based on the conditional statement, remove the unnecessary tabs in the profile menu. If there is a better approach. Please lead the way:)

    http://www.depthleadership.co.za is the website. I have wordpress WordPress 3.5.1. I have buddypress 1.6.4.

    in my theme’s function.php:

    `

    if(groups_is_user_member( bp_loggedin_user_id(), BP_Groups_Group::get_id_from_slug(‘faculty’))){

    function setup_nav() {
    global $bp;

    // Remove a menu item
    bp_core_remove_nav_item( ‘messages’ );

    }

    add_action( ‘bp_setup_nav’, ‘setup_nav’, 1000 );
    }

    `
    i’m stuck because, if i make the conditional statement truthy the appropriate tab is removed. So i know i can remove nav tabs with this function. If i place the code too check if the member is a part of a certain group into something like header.php it works. BUT for some reason, together in my functions.php file they do not.

    I tried putting it into bp-custom.php, site just crashed.

    Thank you for your time, any help would be appreciated :)
