Trying to Install A Theme And Assign Menu Links with BuddyPress Template Pack

  • Hello!

    I’m brand new to BuddyPress and am trying it out on a small site to see how it goes.

    I did the install of BP plugin just fine, and tired to activate the “Randy Candy” theme after installing that, but it is all broken and I could not get it to work.

    So after some research I found a plugin called BuddyPress Template Pack
    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/bp-template-pack/

    This seems to work fine iwth a theme I have called PersonalPress 1.5 by Elegant Themes.

    Only one trouble and I’m wondering if someone can help me. I would like to put the links into the site navigation for the BuddyPress pages. In my BPTP admin it says:
    Navigation Links

    You may want to add new navigation tabs or links to your theme to link to BuddyPress directory pages. The default set of links are:

    * Activity: http://natfriends.com/site/activity/
    * Members: http://natfriends.com/site/members/
    * Groups: http://natfriends.com/site/groups/
    * Forums: http://natfriends.com/site/forums/
    * Register: http://natfriends.com/site/register/ (registration must be enabled)

    Now how do I go about putting in these URLS to the main navigation of my site? Do I have to hard code them into one of the files for the main theme? If someone could point me in the right direction, I’d be grateful. I am not sure how to do this.

    Thanks!

  • Hi
    At the moment, you do have to hard code – probably into your header.php

    Hi Paul,

    Ok, how do I do this? I’ve never done it before. Could you show me an example of the code and where to locate where the main navigation might be? I can send you the header.php if that helps.

    Thanks!

    Hi! You should create pages in dashboard and name theme : Activity, Groups, Forums, Members, Register,.
    Be sure You have PERMALIKS ON , theme folder include BuddypressTemplate Pack files and on editing page below title is right url (example: [ Permalink: http://natfriends.com/site/members/ )
    Now i trying this at localhost. Is working (WordPress 3.1alpha BuddyPress 1.3-bleeding )

    Hi Work,

    I am using WordPress Version 3.0 and BuddyPress 1.2.5.2 at the moment.

    This method works like a charm.

    Lovely and thank you for the assistance :)
