Navigation Items


please could you tell m in which template tag the navigation items are created? If you look at the enclosed picture, I mean 'Home', 'About me', etc…

Thank you.

Kind regards,

    Hi Andrea,

    These themes are actually child themes of the default BuddyPress theme, which should be located in your themes folder in /bp-default/.

    You’ll need to refer to the navigation area in that core theme in this case. And I believe what you’re looking for is on line 46 in header.php.

    That said, the nav menus are customizable at Appearance > Themes, if you need to add/remove items from it.

    Hi David,

    thank you.

    I tried to customize the theme and created a custom header.php. file.

    I inserted the following code lines about the navigation bar, setting 'menu_id' => 'nav', which should generate a 'nav' tag when looking with the Web Inspector.

    <div id="navigation" role="navigation">

    <?php wp_nav_menu( array( 'container' => false, 'menu_id' => 'nav', 'theme_location' => 'primary':wink: ); ?>


    However I get class="menu" as you can see in the attached picture.

    I looked at the same file in the BP Default and the code is:

    <div id="navigation" role="navigation">

    <?php wp_nav_menu( array( 'container' => false, 'menu_id' => 'nav', 'theme_location' => 'primary', 'fallback_cb' => 'bp_dtheme_main_nav' ) ); ?>


    In this case with the Web Inspector I get class="nav", as expected.

    Please, could you tell me why in my case I get class="menu" instead?

    Many thanks,
