#2111: Allow Creating Settings Sub nav reliably in Buddypress
Reporter:  sbrajesh      |       Owner:

Priority:  minor         |   Milestone:  1.2.2
Keywords:  settings nav  |  
 Currently there is no way in Buddypress to allow plugin developers
 reliably add their own submenu under settings.

 The problem is "bp_core_new_subnav_item" uses wp action with priority 3 to
 set the screen functions while "bp_core_add_settings_nav" is called at
 "wp" action with priority 2. So A Plugin developer can not hook the
 submenu under settings with "wp" action priority greater 3, the screen
 functions will not be set.
 The catch is, The menu can be set with "wp" action and priority 2, but it
 does not guarantee that the menu will be shown.

 I will propose to either change the action for calling
 "bp_core_add_settings_nav" to bp_init or another easy way is just putting
 an action like do_action("bp_core_settings_nav") inside the function

 I am not attaching a patch, as I am not sure which method will be best,
 There may be some better option too.
