Thanks Venutius, I’ll take a look at shortcodes. Just reading the link one question I do have is can I enable to user id attribute to dynamically select the logged in user?
@Shanebp: I need to present the logged in user with their inbox. Effectively just showing the Buddypress default members page for that user. All I’ve found available is a default URL of site/members/user. I need this to operate dynamically, detecting the logged in user and revealing their specific inbox. I then want to add this to a page. The end result is that a logged in user can access their inbox from a menu option.
