Re: Link leads to the wrong place
you’re going to want to do something a little more codey…
<li><a href="<?php echo $bp->root_domain; ?>/forums/" title="<?php _e( 'Forums', 'buddypress' );?>"><?php _e( 'Forums', 'buddypress' );?></a></li>
I haven’t tested it, but I’m pretty confident.
You could go a step further and put this into a hook function, but lets try this for now and see if does what you want.
