    Here we go folks… for those of you who want to have some fun with the bp-adminbar (and help me get this version of my 1st plugin rolling), V2.1beta of “Add-All-Nav-Links-To-BP-Adminbar” is ready for testing.
    You can download the zip here: http://nowrecovery.com/downloads/add-all-nav-links-to-bp-adminbar2.1beta.zip

    Unzip and upload the add-all-nav-links-to-bp-adminbar folder to your plugins directory.
    Activate the plugin.
    Then, under “Settings” > “BP-WP-Navbar”, you’ll find options to:
    – Hide or display the main theme navigation
    – Hide or display the site name in your new adminbar
    – Hide or display the Login and Signup links in the adminbar
    – Hide or display the “Visit Random” menu
    – Select whether to display top-level WordPress pages horizontally or in a dropdown menu
    – Define the label for the WordPress page dropdown (note that 2 menus are provided for if you’re running WP3.0)
    – Define the label for the Buddypress directory dropdown (default = “Community”)
    – Define the font, font-weight and font-style for all menu items
    – Define ALL colors: navbar background, main and sub menu item backgrounds, border, text and hover colors too
    – Set the overall width of the navbar and of sub-menus
    – Set the height of all menu items
    – Adjust margins where required
    – Reposition your fancy new custom navbar anywhere you like, relative to your theme so it scrolls with your pages

    Comments, suggestions, criticism, code revisions… all are welcome!

    Please take my baby for a spin and tell me what you think.

    P.S. – kinks in the wp_nav_menu functions for WP3.0 are still being ironed out, so labels for menus must still be added manually through the plugin’s admin panel for everything to sinc up nicely. Hopefully, @hnla and my little self will get all this together soon!

    do you have an email contact address that you can post?
    I went to your site and registered to see the bar in action. I was having tons of problems with the s2members system puking all over my account. Was going to try and contact you about it, but you have no contact form on the site for feedback, and I can’t do or go anywhere on the site.

    anyhow, was just trying to help out

    Sorry about the bugginess with s2member. There were conflicts with Branded Login plugin, and s2member restrictions I had previously set. :-(

    I’ve removed all restrictions until I get this figured out so, if anyone else wants to take a look, feel free to dive right in! :-)

    The configuration options are excellent.I just played around for a while with the configuration operations.Here is a screenshot of my test

    The plugin is excellent.

    It would be great if we had an option to choose the colors from admin panel itself.@rustybroomhandle ‘s Buddypress Group CSS has an option to choose colors from admin panel itself.

    Thanks,

    Thanks for the feedback! The options you mention will be included in the next version of the plugin, along with many others (see the first post in this thread).

    If you want those options right now, you can download the beta from my site:
    http://nowrecovery.com/downloads/add-all-nav-links-to-bp-adminbar2.1beta.zip

    Simply overwrite the 2 files (bp-wp-navbar.php and bp-wp-navbar-admin.php), refresh the admin panel page in your backend, and have fun!

    PS – Thanks also for the hi5 here: http://buddypress.org/community/groups/how-to-and-troubleshooting/forum/topic/remove-visit-from-the-admin-bar/#post-69463

    I just used your beta version. It is much easier to use than the changes in the css file of the previous version. Congratulations.

    Would be great to use this menu as one of the WP menu. See http://www.rosenstiehl.net (I made a kind of it using url).
    Otherwise, how could it be possible to align the BP menu bar with the theme lay-out.

    As you can guess, I am not a programmer.
    Thanks in advance.

    Thanks for trying it out. To align the adminbar with your theme, add the following to bp.css:

    #wp-admin-bar .padder {
    width:1025px;
    }

    Or simply define that width with the plugin at the Overall navbar width setting.

    I saw your comment in your members directory ;-) To fix the “staircase” effect, add some padding to “ul.item-list li” in bp.css

    If you’re using Firefox, I highly recommend installing installing the Firebug addon. It makes it very easy to identify the css elements you want to change. You can mess around with things as much as you want and see the results right in your browser. When you’re satisfied, simply copy the css rules you’ve modified to your stylesheet and upload.

    Many thanks. I’ll try this.
    By the way, where could I find the bp.css?

    I found bp.css and it works fine.
    Many thanks

    You’re welcome! I also noticed that the contents of the members widget in your sidebar is a bit staggered. To solve that, add the following to bp.css:

    div.widget ul {padding:1px;}

    @etienne-r-2

    Your instruction works fine if included in the “Add HTML/CSS insert” of the Atahualpa theme. The admir bar now looks better.

    Regarding the staircase, the padding instruction does not solve the issue. It looks like the system does not take the avatar in account and do not realign to the left of the zone.

    The problem is not the avatar not aligning to the left. The problem is that the height of the avatar is greater than the height of the item content, so it aligns to the left but can’t go any further left than the corner of the avatar above it. Try using the “Add HTML/CSS insert” in your theme and increasing the padding to 2 or 3 pixels.

    Aha! I see you just changed the value of “margin-left” in “ul.item-list div.item”. That works but a value of 70px would be suffucient. At a 100px margin, other items that use the same container div might look a bit lost in the wilderness:-)

    @pcwriter,
    I partially fixed the bug. I played with the padding and the width and height of the avatar.
    Apparently there is still something wrong as the avatars are overlaping and the height of each element in the widget (we can observe it by the size of the grey bar on the left) is not adjusted to the size of the avatar.

    Apparently the instruction ” div.widget ul {padding:1px;} ” does not have any effect. Neither in the ‘Add HTML/CSS insert’ nor in the bp.css.

    Still struggling. But will thing about it in front of of a good beer.
    Thanks for your precious help.
