Hi there, I’m a newbie to BP and so far most things have been fairly self-explanatory but I’m running into a bit of an issue creating a link from my homepage that will go to the member’s logged in profile page. I know this has been discussed before but either I’m missing something or the solutions offered aren’t really solving my problem. My issue is that I am trying to modify the Sidebar Login widget for wordpress (http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/sidebar-login/) to work with my bp profile and I can’t figure out how to get the profile link to take users to the bp profile rather than the backend admin page. In the tools section for the widget, there is a field in which I enter the links, and I’ve been testing:
< a href=”http://www.techettes.com/<?php echo the_author_login(); ?>/”>Profile< /a>
< a href=”<?php echo bp_core_get_userurl($bp[‘loggedin_userid’]) ?>activity/my-friends”>Your Friends Activity< /a>
but am taken to the URL:
I would be very grateful for any help here!
Alternately, if someone could suggest a sidebar login widget that works better with BP, that would be appreciated as well!
