  • Resolved ulises2010


    I’m tarying your plugin and want to give you the thanks because is very usesfull. However, I had two little problem, when my users login into the page, I want the see a little legend, into the widget, saying something like ‘Welcome Username’.

    Otherwise, I can’t put a logout link, the default don’t work, and something like ‘’ bring me to the wordpress page and I want they stay into my page.

    And finally, it’s possible when someboby login into the page be redirect to the profile page directly?

    Thanks a lot and thank you again for your work

    Hi Ulises.

    To manage login and logout page redirects you need a plugin like Peter’s Login Redirect which will let you control the login and logout redirect actions by user role:

    Have added an option to add a welcome message. The welcome message does not include the user’s profile name but you can display the welcome message next to the user’s avatar image.

    Thanks leehodson,

    It’s works, but I still have some problems.

    With the Peter’s Login Redirect I can’t (or I don’t know) display the welcome message, I don’t find the optiรณn, and otherwise, I don’t know which is the link to logout, because this:


    don’t work the redirection and ever send mi to the wordpress login page…

    Thanks a lot

    YES…. The new version have a Welcome message… perfect!!!!

    But I don’t know how to personalize it with the username ๐Ÿ™

    Have you seen the plugin “Theme My Login” ?

    That plugin can be used to prevent users seeing the WordPress login screen.

    Peter’s Login Redirects is used to change the page a visitor sees after login and the page a visitor sees after logout.

    The BuddyMenu widget will not currently display the user name in the welcome message.

    To display a welcome message that includes the logged in user’s name

    Install the Ultimate TinyMCE plugin and enable the Ultimate TinyMCE PHP widget. You will then be able to use PHP in a PHP widget to display a custom welcome message. Add this PHP code to your Ultimate TinyMCE widget:

    if ( is_user_logged_in() ) {
      $before = 'Text before username';
      $after = 'Text after username';
      global $current_user;
      $username = '<a href="'.bp_loggedin_user_domain( '/' ).'" alt="">'.$current_user->user_login.'</a>';
      echo $before.' '.$username.' '.$after;

    Place the widget above the BuddyMenu widget. Edit the text for $before and $after. Be careful not to remove the single quote marks.

    The welcome message will display to logged in users only.

    I will add this feature to the widget later but it won’t be today.

    Thank you…. a perfect explanation

    But… I still be in trouble ๐Ÿ™

    I see Theme my login but I think I don’t need it, for me is enought with buddy menu, but the only problem now is the logout button, when I used, wordpress give me a message saying: Are you sure want to logaout?, and I prefeer to logout directly….

    Maybe it’s possible with a custom url, but all I try have the same problem ๐Ÿ™
