Custom Profile Menu for BuddyPress

Custom Profile Menu for BuddyPress

Description

Ever wished you could add custom pages to the BuddyPress profile menu? Here's a plugin for that. Simply install and activate the plugin, add your custom menu page(s). That's it, Bingo!

The Custom Profile Menu for BuddyPress plugin lets you add custom static pages to the BuddyPress profile menu. Extend the extremely limited BuddyPress profile menu by adding your desired number of custom pages to it, with your desired content along with the built-in Home, Activity, Profile, Notifications, and Settings items.

Core Features

The core features of the plugin include the abilities to:

  • Add custom static pages to the BuddyPress profile menu
  • Add submenu pages by assigning a parent menu page
  • Set a default submenu page for a parent submenu page
  • Re-order the menu items.
