    Sorry for the bad English, I live in Brazil.

    I need to change my layout a bit and the only missing is the organization of the buttons from the user profile. The plugins prints this buttons on my user profile:

    I want to take out the "Add friend" button and add it separately to another section of the profile page. How can I achieve that?

    This is not related to the plugin, but I'll answer this.

    You need to add the following in your theme's functions.php or /plugins/bp-custom.php:

    // remove 'add friend' button from profile page
    function my_remove_friend_button() {
    	if ( ! function_exists( 'bp_displayed_user_id' ) ) {
    	if ( bp_displayed_user_id() && bp_is_active( 'friends' ) {
    		add_action( 'bp_member_header_actions',    'bp_add_friend_button', 5 );
    add_action( 'get_header', 'my_remove_friend_button' );

    Then use bp_add_friend_button() somewhere in your template file where you want the "Add Friend" button to show up.

    Thanks for your help!

    Now I'm facing another problem with the theme (or plugin). The buttons that I described are not showing on the profile anymore and the <?php do_action( 'bp_member_header_actions' ); ?> is there.

    What's happening?
