Buddypress Sidebar

Description

Create multiple sidebars, just name your new sidebar the same name as the Buddypress Component and it will show up when that component is displayed. So you can have separate sidebars for ‘Activity’, ‘Members’, ‘Groups’, etc. You can also name a sidebar the same name as any page and that sidebar will automatically show up on that page. Prefabricated sidebars include Home and Blog. The Blog sidebar will appear on single and archive blog pages.

Changelog

1.0

  • Hello Buddypress World!

  • Added support for Buddypress Action targeting. Now you can target pages based on the component and activity.

Modified plugin to account for changes to WP 3.1 multisite network admin system. Am still planning functionality upgrades from user feedback but am tied up on other projects. Hopefully soon, thanks for all the feedback.
