    What is the $doing_adminbar var for? I see a ref to it in the buddybar code setting it true/false and also it’s declared in bp_is_home() but that fn isn’t doing anything with it. I’m not seeing it used anywhere for anything.

    Reason I ask is I have a plugin that adds a menu option to the buddybar (anybody sick of me calling it that yet? wardeh likes it :) Anyway, when the user clicks that menu option it goes out and triggers some stuff I want done. It does a form submit in js, comes back to the same fn and doesn’t display the menu option the second time. The second time into the fn I want to do a complete redisplay of the bar.

    The stuff I’m doing in the background is adding that user to the current blog as a contributor or author. I want the buddybar to display them as an author and ‘my blogs’ to show this blog as part of their ‘my blogs’ list.

    I’m using do_action(‘bp_core_admin_bar’) to get the bar refreshed. While I was looking for the right action to trigger, I find $doing_adminbar. Looks like you have plans for this global?

    Do I just ignore it? What am I supposed to do with this thing while I’m in the middle of fooling around with the menu items in the bar? I stuff another menu item in and now I’m gonna remove it. Well, just not display it again on the return trip from form submit. Should I worry about this thing at all?

  • Ignore it, it was intended to stop problems with missing submenus in the admin bar when not viewing your profile. It will probably be removed before 1.0 final.

    Thanks. I also realize that just doing do_action() on the menu doesn’t do what I intended. At 4am things kinda get hazy. :) I have to do a complete browser refresh to get the intended results. Oh well.

    On another note, this js stuff is cool. I can do things that would have been ugly, painful or just plain impossible with it. I’m becoming dangerous now.
