#6173 accepted defect (bug)

'Members' menu selected when current page user profile page

Reported by: kaffeeguru's profile kaffeeguru Owned by: johnjamesjacoby's profile johnjamesjacoby
Milestone: Awaiting Contributions Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 2.1
Component: Core Keywords: dev-feedback
Cc: mail@…


In attached screen shot you can see that the current page selected is "My Profile" URL "/members/chris/profile/"

But also menu "members" URL "/members" was selected.

I checked that the current menu selection was done by wordpress core in file /wp-includes/nav-menu-template.php.
So I'm not 100% sure if this could be fixed within buddypress.

Seems like as "my Profile" also contains 'members' it selects the members link too.

Ran out of time for 2.2, but I have a suspicion this will need addressing in 2.2.1.

This is kind of expected behavior.

We've been highlighting the directory page even when on a single item page since v1.5. I originally sought not to do this in r8821.

But then, the issue came about that we wanted to keep the highlighting for backward compatibility, see:

(Also see the follow-up ticket to highlight the BP page using WP nav menu and page menu filters - #5997.)

If we're okay with not highlighting the directory page when on a single page, then 01.patch is an attempt to fix this. Instead of adding the current_page_item CSS class while on a BP single item page, it adds the current_page_parent CSS class, which is more conventional to WP.

If we want to do a hack to keep directory pages highlighted while on a single page, but not highlighted when we're using a BP nav menu member page item, then we'll need to approach this another way.

If this is expected behavior (meaning nothing has changed) let's move this to 2.3 and reconsider changes later.

Definitely not a regression, moving to 2.3.

I've tagged this dev-feedback, because I'm not sure what we want to do.

Is it possible for us to detect whether the menu would have more than one highlighted item, and then ensure that only one gets highlighted, in a predictable way? The behavior described here, for example, only comes up when there's a 'My Profile' link in the menu. Seems to me that if such a link is present, we should give it the current_page_item class (since it's more specific than the directory page); but in that case, we'd want to remove the class from the directory page. Too hacky?
