There is also a plugin that does this. It’s old, but it still works:
Wonderful, etivite was my candyman coupl years ago, and it seems I still need him 2014…
Thanks everyone for this hard-to-find-info!
Where is the user experiance and human point of view dear Buddypress team? Totally confusing using “legacy”, and I consider myself old in the game…
Is this confirmed: ?
So if BP-Legacy is staying, i assume that i only copy the template files i need to change so that updating is easier…yes?
I have exactly the same question after installing 1.9. (im building new themes, no childs, but not since BP v 1.5 – 1.6.x)
Im not so good at this template part but I think Accociation with “buddypress pages” (or like Woocommerce and other) is to claim the slug for the screen function, that don care about the content() of the page itselfs.
I might be wrong, so someone please confirm or correct this.
Screenshots please. And Thanks for dev of free plugin and for contribute interaction to BP
buddypress 2012 change nav order members menu and submenu. No fuzz and works in buddypress 6.1 version. Thanks !
$bp->bp_nav = ’10’;
$bp->bp_options_nav = ’30’;
$bp->bp_options_nav = false;
If someone like me found this (as always) very old topic, use the functions from edit-profile.php instead of profile-loop functions – but in the profie loop:
instead of :
Boink, it works for me.

Hey! for BP 6.1 :
Working on the same problem. Maybe try this advice. The problem is; you cant send private not-friend-messages or mentions or scale up to blog-user-based systems with whitepaced usernames. In the end the user gonna need to enter no-whitepace-names. So interacting nicely would be better approach:
1) To accept the user to type whitespace, but not record them, using jQuery
2) Use EMAIL also to login https://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-email-login/
Example for 1) :
– Leave the register process AS IT IS in bp 6.1 -as now accepts:
Donald Duck = donAld duCK = or HOWEVER a user choose their username with lowercase/ uppercase (This is good for loggin back in – many forgot their cases). The username avabililty checker don alows any other combinations either by default (DonaLD-DUCK is occupied).
– Run a jQuery on(‘keyup’) function as a validator when form appears at :
b) Loggin in
c) Changing username (if enabled by any plugin)
d)* Display name (xprofile required field) = profile edit BASE submit
The results will become : “Donald-Duck” as username, loggin in however letters cased.
If you don wanna show this white-space replacement, Use ‘onsubmit’ instead of keyup -so it can be added silent. But I think its better to LEARN the user to use Hypens – by see the “forced action”. The user will need to write correct usernames when sending/ composing messages and mentions and feeds and…if you scale up.
GOOD: “donald-duck” as the sitewide username = key (private messages, mentions and slugs for blogfarms etc etc)
Also – for user exp – Use a tooltip to make it CLEAR that we are replacing their favorite username with hyphens.
* Display name field, change in the template to ‘hidden’ in xprofile situations. Menaing: NEVER let the user be avaible to fill that out. So the trick comes to the register process. This field is hardcoded required. Let the field be hidden by CSS, added a clone of Username field in the submit. Let the username be Masterfield so avabililty check running ok. Then you get rid of Display name showing SAME for diffrent users – if they can type by themselfs.
Special if you dont wanna display/ using First and Last names:
I have hidden the Display name field in register/ everywhere, cloning username data on Submit, splitting hypens so it displays Donald Duck.
In the payment forms Firstname = Donald Last name = Duck
OTHERWISE the first name will be Donald-Duck and last name Empty.
Don mess with php tweaks so urls get crazy, you loose quality of your collected database if ya cant scale up or migrate in the future. I tried everything and belive me, a small site will starting have problems very soon. Don core files, its security reasons why no filtering is easy to do here – I suppose, after trying everything with authenticate filters and hooks.
I woluld like a plugin to Change ALL custom messages provided in the sign up processes in WP. Including The boring email without username provided. The Welcome Pack can do this with some trix. So the user-name is shown in confirm message.
/ Hope it helps.
Hi, Need a solution too. Please post any trix on this. Searching for a year to get the username in the signup mail. I will hack the wp core files if ness. Working with a children test project, don need to update wordpress.
This SITE is such a confusing site. Become a buddy freak since mars and this site I cant understand. Where Am I? In a group or in a forum? In a private activity? When can I search for What?
Searching doesnt work and everything is SOO Old.
And Google points here all the time.
Just finding reply button isnt easy.
Bad for the wonderful Buddypress WordPress solution.
This is the best signup extra plugin ever. Playing nice, clean with s2member. Now I need it in my new 6.1 project. Ready to pay for it. I tried every solution searching for an update. PLEASE keep him alive!
Hi, recently worked on a datingsite, and a school intranet for BP and scanned 6 month of Getting BP private. Have a lot of notes -and one popped up when reading this post:
“When a user
registers for the blog, the user gets created and then an email gets sent to
the administrators of the site. An administrator then is expected to either
approve or deny the registration request. An email is then sent to the user
indicating whether they were approved or denied. If the user was approved,
the email will include the login credentials. Until a user is approved, the
user will not be able to login to the site.”
Try this as a start – didnt remember if I have (Went trough TONS of solutions of reg process, but I saved this link so maybe its useful…), The fix might be to preserve the passwords somehow instead of autocreate them when aproved.
/ Maybe gonna share my solutions later for the BP datingsite – lot of privacy filters and hooks…
In my edit backend for Positions, I got over 1000 default categories boxes…
Thanks. As my note above, We have 18 000 members, and loop them for a simpe boolean seems heavy (if id == 17999…). Isnt there a smart php session solution, if the core doesnt provide a ONLINE ARRAY ?
Thanks, but it seems to apply me as logged in, not the profile im visit. “I need a true/ false statement if a user_id (not me)”
