Rename Group Nav Not Working

  • Tara Claeys


    Several years ago I used code I found here to rename the “Home” nav item on the Groups page. I used this code in my Theme functions.php file.
    It has been working fine for about 4 years, but now when I go to create a new group, I get an error message

    Below is the code I am using. I assume something changed in an update so perhaps bp_current_item is not working anymore? Or edit_nav?

    //* Rename “Home” to “Reflections”of menu item in BuddyPress Group
    // buddypress()->bp_options_nav[buddypress()->groups->current_group->slug][‘home’][‘name’] = ‘Home/Reflections’;
    buddypress()->groups->nav->edit_nav( array( ‘name’ => __( ‘Home/Reflections’, ‘buddypress’ ) ), ‘home’, bp_current_item() );

  • On what hook are you firing that function? Are you using the Legacy or Nouveau template pack? (Have you changed from the Legacy to Nouveau template pack recently?)

    It could be a number of things, but my first thought is that there’s no reason to be changing the groups nav when you’re in the middle of the create routine, so maybe there’s a more strict check we should be using above and beyond the bp_is_group() check as used on the API page:

    In any case, you should be able to prevent the error by adding a conditional around calling edit_nav():

    $bp = buddypress();
    if ( isset( $bp->groups->nav ) ) {
    	$bp->groups->nav->edit_nav( array( 'name' => __( 'Home/Reflections', 'buddypress' ) ), 'home', bp_current_item() );
