The idea behind this plugin is really good and it works as it should out the box..Plug & Play.

I wish it were a little more elegant & the bookmarks is really useless on an art install such as mine without a thumb to accompany the post..however this is a good start and really good for those of us struggling with Multisite!

I think you'd better add an option for pages,such as:

function bpmh_bkmks_add_in_content( $content ) {

  	if( ( is_single() || ( bp_is_blog_page() && is_page() ) ) && !is_front_page() && is_user_logged_in() ){

  		/*adding the following line or giving an option for pages.*/
  		if(is_page()) return $content;

<a href="#" data-commentid="<?php echo $comment->the_comment_id;?>" title="<?php _e( 'Show/hide comment content', 'bpmh-comments' );?>" class="bpmh-comments-view"><?php _e( 'View comment', 'bp-my-home' );?></a>
should be
<a href="#" data-commentid="<?php echo $comment->the_comment_id;?>" title="<?php _e( 'Show/hide comment content', 'bp-my-home' );?>" class="bpmh-comments-view"><?php _e( 'View comment', 'bp-my-home' );?></a>
Best wishes!

Very useful

Great tool to give extra functionality to Buddypress users. I also use it to highlight some widgets to Buddypress users - similar to the WordPress dashboard.

Love it, but should be in settings

I felt compelled to write this review - my first - because I both love and hate this plugin :P

I love being able to set the home page to my profile.

I love being able to customise the widgets in my profile.

I hate that it's taking up the first icon on my profile - it should be tucked away under settings, because it is *settings*... Once I've configured it as an end-user, I don't need to see it again. On smaller screens, and with many other plugins installed, the icon bar starts shrinking and more regularly used icons disappear in to the last 'overflow' icon wile the rarely-used My Home icon sits proudly at the start of the icon bar.

*Please* give an option to tuck it's UI under the settings icon, this will be a massive, massive improvement IMHO.

EDIT: If the logic is that the "My Home" icon only shows on my profile in which case putting it first highlights that fact, then by the same logic the "Settings" icon should also be the first icon. It's not because settings, once set, are rarely edited.

EDIT #2: And when viewing on a mobile, My Home is rarely the first thing I want to see and it's taking up valuable screen space.

Also, it's a bit weird having widget related UI on both the "My Widgets" and the "My Settings" tabs. It would be better to keep all the widget stuff together on a single "Widgets" tab, and then the home page setting on a "Home Page" tab (remove the "My" as it's using up too much space IMHO - and it's inconsistent with everything else, example: it doesn't say "My Activity" or "My Notifications" etc. it's implicit that it's my stuff as it's on my profile, making the "My" redundant).

If you could sort those two aspects - move it in to "Settings" and have "Widgets" and "Home Page" tabs without "My" prefix - I'd give it 5 stars easily.
