Should default BuddyPress show subnav menu items? Not seeing them…

    Not sure if I ‘m missing something? Is there something I need to do to show subnav menu items? I’m using BuddyPress on standard, non-MU WP and the default buddypress theme. Thanks much for your help!

    Do you mean like nested Pages in the main nav? If so, not by default.

    Yeah I do. Wasn’t sure if it was default or not. Thanks Paul. Will look for ways to add it. Thanks much.

    Digging into this, we ought to create a ticket to get BP 1.3 to use wp_nav_menu()

    @Paul_Gibbs By the way – since you mentioned that function: Newbie here. Googling now. Is the wp_nav_menu() function something I can simply add to a script/template file and it will display submenus? Thanks much…

    Not necessarily, wp_nav_menu() is the function to load any WordPress menu (as introduced in 3.0). I’m not sure how to do this, I haven’t looked into it.

    Actually just saw this: seems pretty easy to implement WP3.0 menus into current WP… well, at least part of WP3.0 menu functionality perhaps. Am testing it now. Will update…

    Actually I’m a dummy. That looks like its just a way to add wp3.0 menu support for anyone building a wp3.0 theme… I think.

    I just used it and successfully added the new menu feature to my BuddyPress installation.

    Of course this didn’t really work for the subnav. I’ll probably have to see how it was coded through Twenty Ten to see how I can make it work as a drop down.

    @jmbullis You added add_theme_support( ‘nav-menus’ ); to your theme’s functions.php and to your theme’s header.php?

    hold one – was stripped:

    @jmbullis You added add_theme_support( ‘nav-menus’ ); to your theme’s functions.php and wp_nav_menu( ‘sort_column=menu_order&container_class=navigation’ ); to your theme’s header.php?

    If you can conjure it up or even do a patch, I could see it getting into BP 1.3.

    Oh, it’s not too hard actually. Add the wp_nav_menu call, and then the “Menu” styles from TwentyTen – i.e. the #access stuff.
