#3206 closed enhancement (fixed)

Group extensions should be able to register admin and non-admin $name

It should be possible for group extensions to register a separate $admin_name or something like that. For example, I'm building a plugin where I want to have a post count in the group extension tab - something like "Docs (13)". But if I do it that way, then it also shows up on the Group Admin tab. Ideally, these would be separate.

At the moment, I use a workaround where I check the action variable first and then change the name accordingly.

I do this for the "Create A Step" name, but could be easily done with the group admin as well.

// workaround to change the "create a step" name
if ( $bp->action_variables[0] == 'step' ) {
	$this->name = __( 'Name', 'bp-ext' );
else {
	$this->name = __( 'Full Extension Name', 'bp-ext' );

Yeah, except that the same logic won't work for group admin screens, because then you are seeing both the regular tab AND the admin tab at the same time.

I ended up hacking around it by reaching into $bp->bp_options_nav after the value is set but before it's rendered:

Obviously, this is a crappy way of doing things :)

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

(In [5384]) Introduces admin_slug, admin_name, create_slug, and create_name properties for BP_Group_Extension, to provide for more flexibility in the way that admin and group creation tabs are named in plugins. Fixes #3206
