    how did you get the forum tab to be the default? And also how did you get the home button to get ignored?

    Thank you

    hi Meryl,

    The site redirects to the “Forum” tab, whenever “Home” is accessed by the user. This definitely took some research but here’s the solution:
    1) create a file called bp-custom.php
    2) add this code to it: http://gist.github.com/1152556
    3) upload the file to your wp-content/plugins/ directory. Do not place the file in a folder. It just sit in /plugins/

    Thank you so much for sharing that with me. I did exactly as instructed and all the code is appearing on top of the website and it’s not working in groups. Do I need to add anything else?

    I forgot the opening and closing php tags. I updated the file. https://gist.github.com/1152556

    Meryl– fyi. I don’t think this code will work with BuddyPress 1.5… it’s not working on a dev site I tried it on.
