WordPress Development Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for WordPress developers and administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I want to re-enable the original WP admin bar after installing BuddyPress!

define( 'BP_DISABLE_ADMIN_BAR', true ); completely disables the admin bar - don't want that.

This question tells us to check the BuddyPress Codex page, and I tried messing with those action hooks but didn't get any desired results.

What's missing? How do we get that admin bar back?!

Since buddypress 1.5 you can use:

define( 'BP_USE_WP_ADMIN_BAR', true );

I use it in bp-custom.php although it can go in wp-config.php
