Today I needed to add a new menu item to the BuddyPress components menu (the menu under the profile with “Settings”, “Groups”, “Forums”, “Profile”, etc.).

In my example below, the menu item will be called, “My Conversations”, and it will link to the “Groups” template.

 __( 'My Conversations', 'buddypress' ), 
            'slug' => 'my-all-conversations', 
            'position' => 75,
            'screen_function' => 'my_all_conversations_link',
	    'show_for_displayed_user' => true,
	    'default_subnav_slug' => 'my-all-conversations',
	    'item_css_id' => 'my-all-conversations'
      ) );

add_action( 'bp_setup_nav', 'my_setup_nav', 1000 );

function my_all_conversations_title() {
	echo 'My Conversations';

function my_all_conversations_content() {

That’s it! Enjoy!
