BuddyBoss creates several pages dynamically & automatically for each and every member of your site. When you use BuddyBoss’ main header menu, and the default vertical & horizontal tab navigation on profile pages, these links are automatically created for you, and they direct the member to their own custom profile pages.

For example, let’s say you want to link to the currently logged in user’s profile page. This URL is unique for each and every user. For me, the URL is:

This also works for the BuddyPress plugin, if you’re using that instead of BuddyBoss.
