    Is it possible to add other Buddypress links from existing Buddypress plugins? Can I put in a custom menu item if I know the php code to redirect?

    Hi, it is customizable but it all depends on the URL structure.

    For BuddyMenu (widget and shortcode), you can edit the code to add static links that don't contain a member's username but you can add dynamic links only when they contain a member's username as provided by the general BuddyPress base URL of, for example, http://example.com/members/username/

    So you could add, for example:


    Which of the menus do you need to edit: the widget or the shortcode?

    Hi Buddhatunes,

    The second paragraph in my above comment should have read 'you can't edit the code to add links to none dynamic BuddyPress URLs but you can add links to different areas of the BuddyPress site that use dynamic URLs.' Saying that, I suppose it is possible to edit the plugin either way but I'll only provide support for the latter.

    Anyway, I'm still waiting for your reply so I can help you.

    Hi Buddhatunes, I've not heard back from you for a while so I'm marking the topic as resolved. Please reply to this post again if you still need help.

    Thank you :)

    This was hard to google, and shouldn't require coding! so let me post my experience here (in the most relevant thread I've found so far). 4 months later, this unresolved post has helped me a lot!

    I needed the buddymenu widget to display links to buddypress pages (like "view profile"), but ALSO links to non-buddypress pages (in fact, pages that aren't even on the site).

    I use the buddymenu widget to display some links for easy member access, so like, "view profile" "edit profile" direct you to your BP stuff, and then "resources" links to a second website -- all from the widget). This post got me 2/3 of the way there, here's the last 1/3 for anyone who needs it :D

    To create a custom URL, do the following once you're at dashboard > widgets > put the buddymenu widget where you want it > on your menu item (for example, "first menu item"), select "custom url", and then SAVE the widget. Refresh the page you are on, and then access the widget again -- there will magically be a new field IN RED for a custom URL! Voila! So frustrating if you don't realize this........

    Here's what I'm running:

    WordPress 3.5.1
    Buddypress 1.7.2
    Frisco theme 1.6.13
    Buddymenu 2.1.1
