    What is the recommended way to mod the vertical menu labeled “ME” int eh standard BP Install? (and the menus that get placed adjacent (other Members, My Profile, My Blogs, etc)?

    I need to trim them a tad to facilitate user understanding (ie remove “Create a Blog” item as well as rename it from “My Blogs” to “Bugle Notes Blog”) simple stuff like that. Not sure if just a few filters is needed and trying hard to avoid a core BP file hack

    To my knowledge if you want to change the names of the labels in the components you’ll need to hack the plugin files (not sure if you include these as “core” files or not). Not sure if there is a better way (haven’t tried to be honest). But on the plus side, these are very simple changes. I’m also interested to see if there is a better way.

    There should be a bp_remove_sub_nav_item() and bp_remove_nav_item() which I will write ASAP and put into the trunk.

    Thanks, Andy. Safe to assume I can use a filter to mod the menu text as well (in my case the renaming of the Blog)

    Hi apeatling, which file/folder will the “bp_remove_sub_nav_item() and bp_remove_nav_item()” be in? I’m also looking to edit the “ME” vertical menu.


    Sorry for the noob Q, im very new to php.
