    How do i change the Change Order of BuddyBar/ToolBar/AdminBar menu items?

    Viz default view is Activity/Profile/Notifications/Messages

    how can i change the toolbar drop-down menu to lets say Messages/Activity/Profile/Notifications/

    I was able to hide menu items and sub items in the BuddyBar/ToolBar/AdminBar but how do i re-order or change order there?

    Thanks in advance

    I would like to hide the admin toolbar for my Buddypress members. I’ve found some code instructions on that isse.

    What I haven’t found is some simple code example on how to move the “user menu” – that is the “Howdy, user name” + profile photo + the Buddypress drop-down away from the toolbar and either put it in a shortcode or to put it in the normal header section – just like on this theme:

    They have a log in button in the header that changes to a “user menu” when logged in.

    Can anyone help with some code examples?

    Hi Patryk,
    Did you try using the BuddyPress data repair tool? I’ve had some success with it in cases like this. In the back end toolbar, go to Tools > BuddyPress and choose which data to repair. You should only run one repair job at a time. (I usually step through all five repairs just to make sure everything’s synced.) Hope this helps!

    Thank you guys, I ended up finally finding my way with the use of the All in One Admin Bar plugin (has the custom CSS editor built in) and I used this:

    #wp-toolbar > ul > li {display:block;}

    I’m using wordpress version 4.2.2
    Buddypress version
    I am using a child theme of twentyfifteen.
    I can’t send a link to my site as it’s still in development.

    I am using BuddyPress with the plugins :
    -BuddyPress Groups Extras
    -BP Simple Front End Post
    -BP Default Group Tab
    -Blog categories for groups

    I would like to be able to add formatting to my group descriptions.

    In admin – I can seemingly edit the description in the sections Groups and Groups Pages. But any changes I make aren’t saved.

    I can edit the description on the front end of the site when in that group as an administrator, but I can’t add any formatting.
    Even if I add formatting in code, it isn’t saved.

    Can anybody help explain what I can do to resolve this?
    I would like to either have a toolbar on the description on the frontend, or be able to edit in the backend and for it to save my changes.

    One crucial question to all: which theme do you use ?
    Have you similar issue by using one of WP’s twenty theme ?
    Have you searched in your theme documentation ? Remeber that we do not support commercial products here as we have no access to the code.

    The Toolbar is related to WordPress, BuddyPress use it only to add a sub-nav block under Howdy on the top right corner.

    I couldn’t find any other mentions of this in the forum so not sure if it’s been discussed before, but how difficult might it be to have an (optional) audio alert (ping!) when a new notification appears in the toolbar?

    I find this very useful on Facebook, if I’m off working on something else I immediately go to check it out, so it makes the site very ‘sticky’ as they used to say :)

    I notice in the latest WP version (or one of the latest versions, 4.2 I think) there was some sort of audio function added but this was to do with screen readers. I don’t know anything about them so don’t know if this is useful for this case?

    We don’t use audio much in web pages so I’m not sure if it’s a simple task or a complete pain…?

    Interested in any thoughts on this from more knowledgeable folks :)

    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.

    How looks the register link on Toolbar ?
    Have you tested with another theme ? Try with 2015 or 14 theme

    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…

    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)
