That’s what I’m trying to do, and what I believe the function bpex_change_profile_settings_default_tab is supposed to do. And I’m almost positive it was working before the upgrade to Buddypress 3. I had to leave the project for over a month and came back to it after the upgrade. I’ve found multiple sources/tutorials that give instructions on how to accomplish this, but all are pre version 3, and none now seem to work.
The override Settings > General screen is not my ideal solution, but it might be a good stop-gap. Thanks.
