    Hello

    Please how can I add two new custom buttons to the buddypress profiles page (bp_is_profile) were the other buttons are displayed like the public message and private message buttons. This buttons will be custom links to any page and should only appear in the profile header of the current logged in user. The buttons will have text and links below

    1. Write a new article — This button will link to https://www.website.com/publish/

    2. Post a free advert — This button will link to https://www.website.com/advertise/

    Thanks

    function buddydev_add_custom_buttons() {
    
    	if ( ! bp_is_my_profile() ) {
    		return;
    	}
    
    	$new_article_button_args = array(
    		'id'                => 'buddydev_new_article',
    		'component'         => 'members',
    		'must_be_logged_in' => true,
    		'block_self'        => false,
    		'link_href'         => esc_url( 'https://www.website.com/publish/' ),
    		'link_text'         => __( 'Write a new article' ),
    	);
    
    	$new_advert_button_args = array(
    		'id'                => 'buddydev_new_advert',

    Hello Tosin,

    Please make sure in your “member-header.php” template has this action “bp_member_header_actions”. This is working for me.

    YES YES YES It worked perfectly there was a caching problem with my site so that’s why the changes did not reflect before.

    Thank you so much
