The BuddyPress User Profile Tabs Creator Pro plugin gives a lot of flexibility in creating new profile tab/component. Here is a list of settings and their explanations.
Tab Title/label:- The title box allows you to set the label for the profile tab.
This label appears as the profile tab label in the user profile menu.
The slug is used for the url. It must be unique for all main user tabs. It will be part of the url like http://example.com/members/some-member-name/tab-slug/
Recommendation:- We recommend using lower case string without any space like “tab-name”.
Below the Tab label and slug, you will see a box named tab settings as shown below. It allows you to configure the tab properly. The tab setting allows you to control the tab position, visibility and availability.
It allows you to mark a tab as enabled. Only the tabs which are enabled and published will be listed on profile.
Allows you to set a tab as the default landing page for user profiles. In other words, when you click on a user link, that tab will be opened by default.
Note:- If you mark multiple tabs as default component, the latest created tab(not the edited), will be used as the default.
Are we modifying predefined tab?
This option allows you to modify pre-existing tabs such as Activity, Profile, Friends, groups etc. You can learn how to modify existing tab by following this tutorial.
Site Admin Only:-
It allows you to make a tab visible only for the site admins when visiting a user profile.
Add this tab for?
It allows you to control the tab availability on a user’s profile. You can limit the tab availability to all members or only certain members. You can select one or more user role who will have this tab available on their profile.
You can limit the tab visibility to only certain members. When a user visits another user who have this tab, will the tab be visible to the visiting user depends on this setting.
Tab position determines where the tab will be available on a user profile. You must specify a number. Lower the number means the tab will have left leaning. To understand the BuddyPress tab position for existing tabs, please see this tutorial.
Note: – If you don’t specify a position for a new tab, a random number will be used each time, so the tab position will change each time.
Default subnav Slug:-
You can specify the slug of the default sub nav that will act as the default screen. You should come back here after adding a new sub nav. If you do not specify a sub nav, The first sub nav item will be the default screen for this tab.
At the moment, the content of the the tab is the content of the default sub nav item. Please add a new sub nav item for adding content.
