Dynamic Profile Links in Menu Solution

  • manm0untain


    Hi Folks

    I have spent a few hours Googling how to set up dynamic links in WP/BD. I found a lot of people asking the same questions. It’s surprising that BP does not allow this functionality out of the box.

    For example, if anyone wanted to create a link on the main menu to the users profile, edit profile etc.

    Most solutions I found required custom functions or hardcoding menu items into the theme. This rather defeats the object of having a nice menu management system in WP backend.

    I found this solution, thought I would share it.

    First I installed the Buddypress Profile Shortcodes plugin –

    Next I installed the Shortcodes in Menu plugin –

    Voila, create menu items in the menu management system to pretty much whatever user area you want to link to.

    Hope that’s helpful for someone 🙂
