    Please use the codex first for basic questions around WordPress or BuddyPress.
    BuddyPress comes with a login widget you can use on every existing theme who accept widgets.

    To style a button, you use CSS. This is common to any modern CMS software.


    I would like for my users to have the option of creating topics for the forum through the toolbar option ‘+ New‘ that the admin or moderators have. Many users will not understand the minimalist editor (the same that this forum has) and may discourage user threads and possibly replies. One of the plugins I installed was User Role Editor as you cannot change permissions by default. Is there something that I am missing within that plugin or what are the available options? Even if users could not use the editor I use TinyMCE Advanced I would be happy; though I would prefer if they had access to that editor.

    I am trying to customise my admin bar. I have achieved most of what I need to do but am stuck on a couple of things.

    1. I want to remove most of the links from the dropdown menu that appears when you moveover, “How are you, Name?”. I want to keep the top part with the profile link and image but want to remove all the links below that. ie. Activity, Profile, Notifications, Messages.

    2. I want to use a font icon for the Home link but this doesn’t appear, random characters appear instead. Does anyone know why? My code is below:

    //add home page link in top left adminbar - want to use font icon but its not working.
    add_action('admin_bar_menu', 'add_toolbar_items', 100); 
    function add_toolbar_items($admin_bar){     
        $admin_bar->add_menu( array(         
            'id'    => 'home',         
            'title' => '<i class="fa fa-home"></i>',         
            'href'  => '/',         
            'meta'  => array(             
                'title' => __('Home'),                     
    //trying to remove Activity, Profile, Notifications, Messages etc links but doesn't do anythingW
    remove_action( 'bp_adminbar_menus', 'bp_adminbar_blogs_menu', 6 );
    remove_action( 'bp_adminbar_menus', 'bp_adminbar_notifications_menu', 8 );

    I posted the same question and no one answered me. This seems to be a common issue with all WordPress/BuddyPress installs (I have a separate WordPress install and the same thing occurs), so it seems to be inherent in the responsive CSS code or something.

    This was my question:

    These other threads also seems to be talking about the same, or a similar issue:

    Doesn’t anyone have any advice, since it’s affecting so many of us?

    And no, it was not due to a conflicting plug-in or a theme. Tests were done when the site was just installed with the default themes. The links shows up correctly on desktop, and on my Nexus 7 2013 (1200×1920 resolution) ONLY when it is in landscape mode, but not when it is portrait (empty, black bar is show). And the same empty black bar is shown on my Galaxy Note 3 (1080×1920 resolution) in both portrait and landscape. So it doesn’t seem to be due to just the horizontal resolution – but perhaps the the full (horizontal x vertical) resolution or something.

    It’s pretty frustrating.

    I noticed that on my BuddyPress site, if a logged-out user views the site from a desktop browser, there is a “Register” and “Login” link displayed on the toolbar.

    However, on a mobile phone, there is only a plain black bar when viewed in portrait mode, and only the WordPress icon on the left if viewed in Landscape mode. The links are missing from the toolbar.

    This is regardless of the theme used.

    How may I get the links to show up on the mobile browser?

    are you on a single or MS install ?
    Your php version is 5.2.17.
    Even if this version is still acceptable for a basic WP blog, i would recommend you use at least 5.3 or better, 5.4 You have many plugins, and working with a too old php is not recommended.


    BuddyPress Toolbar is outdated and no more necessary, as Toolbar was slightly modified since WP 3.9 and BP 1.5

    BP Group Organizer is over 2 years too and group admin is anyway fully integrated to BP since 1.7

    About theme
    You’re using a premium theme and we can’t assist you for this, as we have no free access to his code.

    BuddyPress Groups component is tailored for grouping members. You can show group members activities, but it’s not intended to categorize posts like you can do it on the blog.

    In other words, a group belongs to members, not to a blog category. So far by default. To get such a behave you have to code it yourself or you can use this plugin.

    Late nite coffee riot. 😀 Go to bed it’s time to sleep a little.
    I understood what you asked. Tab tab tab… on profile page.
    Profile stuff is on the member page (the member Core component).
    And when when you say profile page, i understand the profile tab (in reality the profile template), displayed on the member page in My profile context.

    Items you listed are part of the buddymenu.
    They are also used in the usermenu(top right corner), which is part of the toolbar (aka wp admin bar)

    End of jargon. 😉

    WP MS + BP should be installed at the root:
    Default user role on main site is: subscriber (see wp settings for that)

    BP settings allows you to let users create a blog.
    A new user create a blog which goes as subfolder:

    User from the main (subscriber) created the new_blog and is now blog admin of his blog and subscriber on the main blog.
    He can only access his own blog dashboard but cannot go to the main site dashboard.

    They are several WP plugins which let you customize the toolbar and many WP snippets you can use to do it by yourself. For example removing some of WP items, or adding some conditionnals to shows them to certain roles only.

    BuddyPress uses templates and depending what a member does and where, such a template is fired.
    Most of these BP templates are using a loop which you can customize. See Codex for details on each and what you can do with extra template params.

    Have you tried another setting for Toolbar ?
    Default is yes. Uncheck and see if you get a difference.

    @mrgiblets – I’m not sure on the WP Symposium Toolbar front. All it seems to do is add additional functionality to the top toolbar, to allow additional linkage and whatnot. I’m not sure if it could be the culprit. It seems damn near anything could be at this point!

    @mcpeanut – I do have DP Pro Event Calendar (purchased from Do you know of a way to specifically see all of the slugs on a site to make sure nothing is duplicate? If not, that will take a while to track through all of them to see if that’s maybe the cause…

    Profile photo of mrgiblets

    Yeah true, I’ve just always tried to steer away from using ready made plug-ins wherever possible. Most things can be done with a few lines of code in your functions.php file.

    Saying that there are some on that list that most certainly are brilliant and required but the one that is confusing me is :

    WP Symposium Toolbar

    I thought WP Symposium was a rival social platform plug in to BP?
    I can’t imagine they are going to play nicely together although i’m not speaking from experience so could be totally wrong.

    Profile photo of danbp

    Problem is see is the green toolbar, containing wrong links, ie: profile button goes to your-site/members/admin/profile/ and your premium theme, for which we can’t help you, because we have no free access to it’s code.

    Revert to 2015 theme and deactivate all plugins except BP.

    Make it to work correctly.
    Set pretty permalinks to what you want, except “by default”.

    Ensure you have the Buddy menu showing on 2015. You should see at least: activity, members, groups. Test them and ensure you go to the right page.

    On the top right Howdy menu, you should have all BP elements concerning your profile (friends, messages, notifications…), of course only if you activated these components.

    Once it is working with 2015, you can activate your theme.

    At this stage you will probably see some layout issues and will have to do some CSS adjustment.
    Contact theme’s support to get help for that.


    In reply to: Admin bar translation?

    Profile photo of danbp

    Here what i have on my test install, 2012 + wp+bp in spanish

    screenshot toolbar menu

    as you see, the wp part IS in spanish, and most of the bp items are in english, and some are in spanish.

    Guess you have to review the whole translation manually with poedit or at least try to setup your site to another spanish format, so that bp could use that one. With a little chance, one of them is correctly translated.

    Open the po file with poedit and update it with the POT file shipped with BP 2.2.1.
    And complete/modify the translation, save and add the mo file to live site languages/plugins/ directory.

    i mentionned the codex page because it shows the arrays to filter on.

                'component_action'  => 'new_at_mention',
                'is_new'            => 1,

    (optional) Whether the notification is new. This will be set to 0 once the notification is viewed by the recipient.

    See bp_notifications_toolbar_menu function (bp-notifications-adminbar.php:20)

    WordPress: 4.1.1
    BuddyPress: Latest
    Theme: Aggregate by Elegant Themes

    Hi guys,

    I’m really at my wits end and not sure where to proceed from here. I have a live site that is going on about a month now, we have around 25-30 users at this current time and they’re constantly reporting to me that a page here and there is showing “No Results Found.”

    Up until this point, it’s been okay and I’ve just re-saved the permalink structure each time, but today the worst thing possible happened and my login page became “No Results Found.”

    Thankfully, I was logged into my site via my PC, so I could update the permalink structure, but what if I hadn’t been? I don’t know how to fix this, I don’t know what’s causing it.

    The major issue is, it’s intermittent so deactivating and reactivating plugins one-by-one may not be the most useful route for this simply because I can’t guarantee when it’s going to happen, in order to deduce what the issue is.

    Any help in this matter is extremely appreciated.

    Is there any way to limit my users access to the backend end menu on the toolbar (the menu on the left). I would like to keep the user menu on the right hand side however.

    Hey @mercime thanks for the reply. That has already been done. The toolbar isn’t shown for users who are logged out. However, when they log in, the tool bar is displayed. Thats what I’m asking. Is there any way to hide that?

    Hi @r-a-y
    I have solved the problems with notifications toolbar derived from comments and groups.
    The problem was that I used no plugin in order to send notifications… I’m a little silly … 😉
    But now I continue with the problem about notifications derived from FORUM.
    I have used three differents plugins but I continue with the same problem…
    This is a bbPress problem… I understand that, but I have seen that in this web page ( notifications run very well, so my question is:
    What is the plugin used in this page ( in order to send forum notifications in administration toolbar?
    Can you reply me? Or can you indicate who can know that?
    Thank’s very much.

    my snippet hides buddybar items to non logged user, not BP usermenu items on Toolbar.

    To do that, you have to read the codex document i indicated in one of previous post.

    BuddyMenu is built a la BuddyPress. And you got support for this here.

    Toolbar is built a la WordPress. WP support is here.

    If you had looked a little on the forum (ie. Remove Edit My Profile), you could find this:

    And again, the one or other code doesn’t remove BP pages, only items.

    Profile photo of Hugo

    The admin user or primary user that is setup when a wordpress site installed is always able to login directly, and it’s initally only that user that can activate plugins i.e BuddyPress so I’m not sure why you are having trouble with activation requests. /wp-login.php should allow the admin to login regardless of whether BP is activated or not.

    What account are you trying to login with, the admin user ID 1 ?

    In the BP settings screen ‘Page’ tab what page have you associated to ‘Activation’ in the select box, as the redirect here appears to be the main issue and the WP link to login on the WP toolbar should redirect to the wp-login screen, which you can actually access directly by modifying your browser url so you can actually login as admin and manage your site.

    fyi you shouldn’t have to trouble your web hosts to deactivate BP, using a control panel or ftp you can rename the plugins folder which will force a deactivation of the plugin or any plugin if they give trouble.
