 So I am developing and updating a BuddyPress theme and I have the latest
 version of BuddyPress installed. I changed my groups page slug into

 Now I have a custom link which is directly linked into groups page using
 $bp->groups->slug. When I visit that page, it returns 404 error.

 After investigating, I tried to echo the returned value of
 $bp->groups->slug and then I realised that the groups slug were not
 updated from 'groups' to 'community' at all.

 So what I did is I manually get the selected page for buddypress groups
 and now it's working.

 Here is the code:

 <?php $bp_pages = get_option('bp-pages'); ?>
 <?php $bp_groups_page = get_post($bp_pages['groups']); ?>
 <?php $bp_groups_page_slug = $bp_groups_page->post_name; ?>

 I would like to confirm is this is a bug or my fault? I have
 $bp->groups->slug outside bp loop.

 Thank you so much!
