Navigation buttons – Where are they?

  • schaffa


    Hi all!

    I would like to rename/remove a couple navigation buttons (in the bar Home Blog Groups, etc)

    Actually found where to rename them, now I cant find it anymore.

    Also, if I want to change the color of the title bars (now orange), how can I do this.

    I have been searching and searching to no avail.

    – header.php in both the home and member theme dirs bp_nav_items() > bp-core-templatetags.php function bp_nav_items()



    THANK YOU burtadsit!

    i have been having trouble opening that header… i can se it w quick view, but when I right-click to open with TextEdit… i dont see anything.

    any advice on that?

    thx again! appreciate it



    File is located at:

    <rootpath of your WPMU>wp-contentmu-pluginsbp-corebp-core-templatetags.php

    Function [bp_nav_items()] starts from line# 539



    thank you both very very much!

    I am now trying to switch out the orange header, with the darker one.

    I tracked down the actual gifs, but where would I substitute them?

    Its all working out well, I must say…. Thx to all who are making this possible!!!

    @burtadsit and kapil.bp,

    I was searching for an answer of adding (or subtracting) main nav buttons, and came across this post. Very helpful and led me right to an interim answer. So, thank you.

    However, if a hard code nav changes into bp-core-templatetags.php, then I would be sorry when upgrading if I wasn’t paying attention. So, this prompts my next question, is there no dynamic way to add (or hide) nav buttons? Of course there’s always a way, but one that exists?

    Maybe this could be accomplished by adding a nav options section to the BuddyPress home theme? Or a BuddyPress-specific nav plugin?

    Any takers?;)


    Is there a way to replace the Navigation Tabs(Home, Blog, Members…) by individual images?

    Because I want to use other colour,fonts and graphic on the tabs. How do I control the Up, down and hover states?




    I have read and reread this forum post to discern how to find and edit the nav bar names.

    I am using WordPress MU 2.7.1

    Buddypress 1.0.1

    Facebuddy theme

    Burt says: “- header.php in both the home and member theme dirs bp_nav_items() > bp-core-templatetags.php function bp_nav_items() ” but when I look in my files in the control panel, I can’t find it anyhwere.

    I know this is super easy but I think I am missing a very basic file breadcrumb trail.

    wp-content -> themes -> facebuddy-home-theme -> ?

    I have looked in file after file for Burt’s mention of bp-core-templatetags and there is no bp-core that I can see anywhere or any kind of templatetag. What am I missing?

    This thread is very outdated. A lot has changed in BuddyPress since this thread last had activity 3 months ago.

    If you are simply looking for where you can change the text of the menu buttons “Home”, “Blog”, “Members”, “Groups”, “Blogs”, then it is found in the header.php file of both the home and member themes.



    Here is my header.php from wp-content/themes/home/header.php

    I’m still missing something, I don’t see where I can change the names on some of these components…

    many thanks for any guidance

    Did you not see my post immediately above yours? ;)

    Please start a new thread as even my last post is 4 months old and once again much has changed in the theme architecture.
