    I think what you’re really looking for is this plugin: BP Direct Menus. You can put a menu item or shortcode that links to any buddypress page. It even lets you customize the menu name with the user’s information.

    Full disclosure: I wrote the plugin after I couldn’t find a more elegant solution to this same problem.

    I also have no buddypress items in the Menu area under appearance. I am running 3.9.1. Does this functionality still exist?

    I too am looking to create a link in the Appearance > Menu area of WordPress to a users profile and also messages area. I am using Buddypress 2.0.1 and do not see how this is done. My Menu area does not have a buddpress links option here or in the theme options?

    You need to navigate to your-site/wp-admin/nav-menus.php and in the upper right side you will see a tab with an inverted triangle labeled “Screen Options” click that tab and then check the box beside “BuddyPress” you should then have the BuddyPress links in your menu options. Keep in mind you need to be logged in. Good luck!

    @bphelp – makes perfect sense and thank you for the prompt reply. That worked great and nice to know these dynamic links are being thought of 😉
