    I love BBpress but this is so annoying I have searched here and googled it but there just isn’t anything anywhere that shows how to place a simple link to the BBpress users profile in your menu or on a page, this must be possible as it is the most basic need for a forum.

    Is there anyone that can shed some lite on this for us poor mortals that have exhausted all avenues ??

    Thanks in advance

    I’m am using the plugin “Tabbed Login Widget” which I would like to modify so that user profile page points to the BBpress profile instead on the WP profile page.

    But I do not know what URL to use?

    I have just managed to solve this issue by using:
    bbp_get_user_profile_url( get_current_user_id() )

    Those looking to create a simple link to the profile could use:
    <?php echo bbp_get_user_profile_url( get_current_user_id() ); ?>

    I edited the file plugin file called tabbed-login.php.

    At line 176 edit the <div class=”userinfo”> so that it now reads…

    		<div class="userinfo">
    			<p><?php _e('You are logged in as ', 'tabbed-login'); ?> <strong><?php echo $user_identity; ?></strong></p>
    			<p>
    				<a href="<?php echo wp_logout_url($current_url); ?>"><?php _e('Log out', 'tabbed-login'); ?></a> | 
    				<?php if (current_user_can('manage_options')) { 
    					echo '<a href="' . admin_url() . '">' . __('Admin', 'tabbed-login') . '</a>'; } else { 
    					echo '<a href="' . bbp_get_user_profile_url( get_current_user_id() ) . '">' . __('Profile', 'tabbed-login') . '</a>'; } 
    					// Updated using bbp_get_user_profile_url( get_current_user_id() to link to BBPress profile page instead of the WP profile page
    					?>							
    			</p>
    		</div>

    Hope this helps!

    Any help would be great.

    You need to edit the file called tabbed-login.php found in the Tabbed Login Widget plugin not the Bbpress plugin.

    @diggories still isn’t working? :(

    When I hover over the link, it reads http://www.domain.com/wp-admin/profile.php

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks

    OK, it turns out I had to deactivate every plugin to be able to edit the files.

    So now upon hover, I get the following which is in the screen shot here http://screencast.com/t/xOYhhbbc5TUG

    I have searched the file for this random ‘-’ and can not find what is causing this. Any idea?
