Menu Question

  • sandman18


    I was hoping someone can explain the difference to me between the different menus and pages in buddypress. For Example when I install buddypress it creates certain pages for me that I can pull into my main menu, one of theses pages is the activity page. ( However there seems to be another activity page in the menu under the member’s profile ( What is the difference between the two. I notice that the menu under the members name also has a submenu (personal, mentions, favorites, friends, groups) How to I gain access to this menu so I can style it and use it in other areas?

    When you go to the member’s profile page. (e.g
    That is the person’s profile..
    it has a tab of their profile activity, (blog, profile info, groups, ect..) it only shows what that user has posted or replyed in.. Nothing more, nothing less.

    If you decided to use a different theme instead of the bp-default theme you might run into some problems with the header.php.. ( some themes will already add in a link for activity, groups, ect ect..) but if you are using the bp-default then you shouldn’t run into these problems.

    My suggestion, add a few users on your site. Post activitys, make groups and put some content on your site.. Learn how buddypress works and what you can and can’t do with it. Click things and see what they do.
    Best of luck with BP.



    Thanks for the reply! I am really trying to understand BP but and explaination of what each file does would be really helpful. For instance, what is the header.php file, why is it important, and what does it do? I ask this because I would like to use a different theme.

    About the menus then, the activity page displays all activity across the site, where the member profile activity page just displays the activity for the member. Does that sound correct?
