    I want to remove the left-most column in the default BuddyPress member theme. Where do I remove their instances so I just have the avatar in the left column and the main column has my xprofile data?

    Thanks.

    How will your members gain access to their profile data–for editing–or their friends, groups, and messages, etcetera, if you remove the userbar?

    I do not recommend this, unless you are planning to provide an alternate way for your members to access this data.

    But, what you need to do to remove the “Me” column in the default BuddyPress member theme, is modify the userbar.php in your template file. To remove the “My Profile” column, you basically have to remove the xprofile navigation menu item that xprofile_setup_nav() invokes. The best way to do that is by creating a function in your bp-custom.php file that then invokes a remove_action() for the appropriate do_actions of that function.

    Of course, if you remove the “Me” column it will automatically solve your issue of having the “My Profile” column being displayed. You will then have to come up with your own solution to just show the profile data for that given member. It can be done, but what you are asking removes so much access to BuddyPress functionality that I suggest you reconsider.

    My thinking is to emulate the profile style of either buddypress.org or wordpress.org sites. My site will only provide the ability to create a profile or search a profile. Actions such as e-mailing profile owners would be available within the main profile section.

    Thanks for closing the other thread; I did not know the question had already been answered.

    What I would like to happen is remove the me column when i am looking at other peoples profiles… it should only be there when i am on my profile, not others. It does the same thing when looking at groups. Is there anyway to remove this???

    Isn’t all the stuff in the “me” column available in the “My Account” drop down menu?

    So you would still have access to all of that right?

    Mate, this is an old post and with the new default theme it’s not really relevant anymore. Have a look at testbp.org to see what I mean.
