    Hi there,

    I’m wondering is there anyway to add New Post link to the main menu? I found something like this:

    
    add_filter( 'wp_nav_menu_items', 'my_nav_menu_profile_link' );
    function my_nav_menu_profile_link($menu) { 	
    	if (!is_user_logged_in())
    		return $menu;
    	else
    		$profilelink = '<li><a href="' . bp_loggedin_user_domain( '/' ) . '">' . __('My Profile') . '</a></li>';
    		$menu = $menu . $profilelink;
    		return $menu;
    }
    

    But obviously, it can’t work with any theme.

    Could you help me out?

    Hi Toan,
    Please put this code in your bp-custom.php or functions.php of your theme and let me know if it works.

    
    
    add_filter( 'wp_nav_menu_items', 'buddyblog_custom_newpost_link' );
    function buddyblog_custom_newpost_link($menu) { 
    	
    	if ( ! is_user_logged_in() ) {
    		return $menu;
    	}
    
    	if( function_exists( 'buddyblog_get_home_url' ) ) {
    		
    		$new_post_url  = buddyblog_get_home_url( get_current_user_id() ) . 'edit' ;
    		$menu = $menu . '<li><a href="' . $new_post_url . '">' . __('Create Post') . '</a></li>';
    	}
    	
    	return $menu;
    }
    

    Hope that helps.

    Regards
    Brajesh

    Hi Brajesh,

    Thanks for your response, it’s working, obviously. But what if I want to add the new_post_url before or after an element in my menu.

    For example: Profile | New Post | Logout
    Logout is a custom link came with my theme, (in secondary menu)

    Regards,
    Toan.

    Hi,
    That will be beyond this plugin. The solution is using a solution like page links to( Creating a page and on click redirecting to the new post screen) and using some type of plugin to add/remove the menu when user is logged in/not logged in( This is not built into WordPress).
