Version 2.1 is here… hurray!

    Couldn’t wait any longer :-) . So here it is folks: V2.1 of Add-All-Nav-Links-to-BP-Adminbar is in the repo.

    This version includes a major enhancement: WP3 custom menus are now fetched and displayed automatically… you still need to create your own menus though ;-)

    The dashboard admin panel has been revamped to include all kinds of additional user configuration options.
    - 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

    All this has been added to what you could already do in the earlier version:
    - 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 WordPress2.x pages horizontally or in a dropdown menu
    - Define the label for the Buddypress directory dropdown (default = “Community”)

    Next version? The next major update will have a few more user configuration surprises, a prettier admin panel, and more streamlined code (specifically where css styling is concerned).

    You can grab it from BP: http://buddypress.org/community/groups/add-all-nav-links-to-bp-adminbar
    …or from WP: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/add-all-nav-links-to-bp-adminbar

    If you like the plugin, please DO vote for it in the WP repo! (Comments and reviews don’t hurt either ;-) )

    Have fun!

    I just couldn’t resist doing this: the plugin now has a new UI.

    Yup, a brand-spanking-new paginated admin panel, a lot prettier :-) and easier to find the settings you’re looking for.

    I’ve updated the plugin in the repo with the new UI, but it’s not a new point release. For those of you who have already downloaded it (thank you, BTW!), you can simply download again or grab the bp-wp-navbar-admin.zip from my site and overwrite the old file.

    Have fun! (I sure did making it…)

    1 – Try deactivating then reactivating the plugin.
    2 – What versions of WordPress / Buddypress are you running?

    1. Tried it but didn’t get anything
    2. WordPress 3.0.1 Buddypress 1.2.5.2

    If you are using WP 3.0.1 then you need to create menus to add to the available regions set for the adminbar; have you done that? The older style wp_list_pages isn’t designed to be activated if WP 3.0.1 is detected

    yeah, i did that and added them into the menu areas, but it doesnt show them.
    Also, when not logged in, the navbar disappears even though in buddypress i’m telling it to appear all the time. when i disable the plugin the navbar appears when not logged in

    Are you using the bp-default theme or a custom one?

    Back from work and just saw this continuing thread…

    @jenyus Do you have any other plugins installed that might affect the bp-adminbar? If so, try deactivating them to see if there is a conflict.

    @hnla, i’m using a custom one.

    @pcwriter i’ll check and see, but it was all working fine until the update. i’ll go through ad disable plugins.

    Thanks

    I went with another solution.
    Thank you for your time.

    @jenyus and what is your other solution? I can’t make it work too!

    “I’ve tried with a few themes but nothing really happen”
    Were the themes you tried child-themes of bp-default?

    Here are some examples of themes I’ve successfully tested the plugin on:
    - My custom child-theme
    - BP Columns 1.2 by @modemlooper
    - BuddyPress Widget Theme 1.2 by @modemlooper
    - Cosmic Buddy 1.1 RC2 by @Brajesh Singh
    - Darwin (BuddyPress BuddyPack) 1.2.1 by @Michael Kuhlmann
    - Fishbook 1.2 by @Michael Kuhlmann

    In WP3.x installs, remember to click “Save” in “Theme Locations” once you’ve selected the menus you want to appear, then (IMPORTANT) click “Save Menu” again to activate the menus in the adminbar.

    I’d like to do some more testing, but I just broke my site and I’ve got some reinstalling & reconfiguring to do. :-(

    EDIT: was just a cache problem… phew! :-)

    @pcwriter I’ve tried with one more theme (Safron: a child theme of bp default) an it does work. Now don’t ask me why!

    @claudeg

    The plugin is designed to work with any child theme of bp-default. As long as the IDs of elements targeted by the plugin’s functions are the same as bp-default, it should work no problem.

    If the adminbar displays properly in the theme, that’s a good indicator that the plugin will work. If it doesn’t, there’s likely some other plugin, or code in functions.php or bp-custom.php, that may be interfering.

    Also, if you’re running WP3, be sure to save your custom menus again after selecting which menus you want to display in BP-WP-Navbar Theme Locations.
