Version 2.1 is here… hurray!
I just couldn’t resist doing this: the plugin now has a new UI.
Yup, a brand-spanking-new paginated admin panel, a lot prettier and easier to find the settings you’re looking for.
I’ve updated the plugin in the repo with the new UI, but it’s not a new point release. For those of you who have already downloaded it (thank you, BTW!), you can simply download again or grab the bp-wp-navbar-admin.zip from my site and overwrite the old file.
Have fun! (I sure did making it…)
looks great! only problem is now that i updated the plugin doesnt list any of my other wordpress pages. it just has “My Account” and “Notifications” but wont let me add in any of the other stuff. Any ideas?
1 – Try deactivating then reactivating the plugin.
2 – What versions of WordPress / Buddypress are you running?
1. Tried it but didn’t get anything
2. WordPress 3.0.1 Buddypress 188.8.131.52
If you are using WP 3.0.1 then you need to create menus to add to the available regions set for the adminbar; have you done that? The older style wp_list_pages isn’t designed to be activated if WP 3.0.1 is detected
yeah, i did that and added them into the menu areas, but it doesnt show them.
Also, when not logged in, the navbar disappears even though in buddypress i’m telling it to appear all the time. when i disable the plugin the navbar appears when not logged in
Are you using the bp-default theme or a custom one?
Back from work and just saw this continuing thread…
@jenyus Do you have any other plugins installed that might affect the bp-adminbar? If so, try deactivating them to see if there is a conflict.
“I’ve tried with a few themes but nothing really happen”
Were the themes you tried child-themes of bp-default?
Here are some examples of themes I’ve successfully tested the plugin on:
– My custom child-theme
– BP Columns 1.2 by @modemlooper
– BuddyPress Widget Theme 1.2 by @modemlooper
– Cosmic Buddy 1.1 RC2 by @brajesh Singh
– Darwin (BuddyPress BuddyPack) 1.2.1 by @michael Kuhlmann
– Fishbook 1.2 by @michael Kuhlmann
In WP3.x installs, remember to click “Save” in “Theme Locations” once you’ve selected the menus you want to appear, then (IMPORTANT) click “Save Menu” again to activate the menus in the adminbar.
I’d like to do some more testing, but I just broke my site and I’ve got some reinstalling & reconfiguring to do.
EDIT: was just a cache problem… phew!
@pcwriter I’ve tried with one more theme (Safron: a child theme of bp default) an it does work. Now don’t ask me why!
The plugin is designed to work with any child theme of bp-default. As long as the IDs of elements targeted by the plugin’s functions are the same as bp-default, it should work no problem.
If the adminbar displays properly in the theme, that’s a good indicator that the plugin will work. If it doesn’t, there’s likely some other plugin, or code in functions.php or bp-custom.php, that may be interfering.
Also, if you’re running WP3, be sure to save your custom menus again after selecting which menus you want to display in BP-WP-Navbar Theme Locations.
