We have lost the Buddypress Top Menu Buttons at the top right of the screen (My Account – Dashboard – Notifications – Stealth)
I am thinking installing a plugin (or series of them) caused them to go away.
Have you guy run into this and do you know how to retrieve them other than restoring backups?
i think you may be talking about the buddy bar which was depreciated as of 1.6 there is (or least there was) a way to re-enable it using the bp-custom file code looks like this:
// hacks and mods will go here
add_filter( 'bp_use_wp_admin_bar', '__return_false' );
Which php file does that go into?
Put the code in either bp-custom.php or in your themes functions.php
In which folder do I place bp-custom.php to make it operational?
I created the bp-custom.php with the code you mentioned and dropped it into the plugins folder and nothing happened.
What am I doing wrong here or do you have any other suggestions??
@nanaimomen just tested it in BP 1.7.2 install. That code would bring back the Buddybar of yore and not the current BuddyPress links integrated into the WP toolbar.
If you did want BuddyBar back then check:
– Did you place the code posted above in a new flle named bp-custom.php ?
– Did you upload that file into your server wp-content/plugins/ folder ?
That is working fine.
Got it to work… thanks guys !!
