    Hi there, I want to replace my BuddyPress nav button text with icons instead. In that matter, I’ve got this question asked by the developer

    Does your theme support icons for profile tab?


    The plugin does not support icon out of the box.
    The reason is different BuddyPress themes use different approach for tab icons. Some use css(::before selector) some inject the markup.

    Since BuddyPress does not support icon nav, adding this will make it an issue for the theme’s support.

    It is easily achievable with this theme. All you need to do is assign a css id for each tabbing when adding.

    Adding a new icon will be as simple as this in css

    div#item-nav ul #your-custom-id a:before {
        content: "\f24d"; /*replace the code with icon code from front awesome*/

    So my question is, if I also can achieve this with GP in a similar way?

    Hi there,

    I’m not exactly sure if I understand the question completely.

    GP doesn’t do anything special for BuddyPress. There are also no icons built-in other than the ones needed in the theme (menu toggle, drop down arrow etc).

    If BuddyPress’s support can provide a solution that works with a twenty series WP theme, the same method should apply to GP as well.

    Let me know 🙂

    Glad to hear 🙂
