BuddyPress BuddyLinks does three things really well:
Put a BuddyPress menu or dynamic user link in your sidebar, post, page, widget, footer or anywhere else. Needs BuddyPress to work. There is no need to network activate in WP Multisite. Does not display to logged out users.
BuddyPress menus are dynamic. Their URLs change for each logged in user. This makes it difficult for most community admins and webmasters to add links to areas in their BuddyPress sites. Unless you know how, you can't create a welcome page and send new users to their profile page with a link in the welcome page because the link will be different for each user.
For example, a link to a user's own activity stream would look like http://example.com/members/USERNAME/activity/.
The [USERNAME] bit of the URL is added dynamically by BuddyPress. This means you need to use pictures, videos, diagrams and lots of text to send people to different locations within a BP site or you can use the widget and shortcodes this BuddyMenu BuddyLinks provides.
See 'Other Notes' section usage guide.
The BuddyMenu Widget displays the main BP menus items:
As easy to use as going to Appearance > Widgets and dragging the BuddyMenu widget into your sidebar or any other widget area.
BuddyMenu Shortcode displays the BuddyPress menus tabs. Being a shortcode, it can be embedded in any page or post. If you use Ultimate TinyMCE you can even put the shortcode in a widget.
This is for adding single links within page and post content. Ideal for linking to a user's profile, settings, personal activity stream or any other other BuddyPress page from within a post. For example, you've written a getting started guide for new members and you want to send them to upload an avatar; you can use the BuddyLinks shortcode to link to new users' avatar upload page. The dynamic slug is created by BuddyLinks.
