I don’t know if this is where I need to be posting this. i’m having two issues with the avatar page in registration.
1. when I upload and crop an avatar, it doesn’t “take”; I end up with the default (mystery man) avatar. But I can re-upload and crop via MyProfile>ChangeAvatar, and the avatar then is saved. Not sure, after skimming all posts in this discussion, how to deal with this.
2. more importantly to me, from a user standpoint, is the lack of direction from the avatar page. When first arriving, I’m told “we’ve fetched an avatar for your new account…” but there’s no means of actually accepting that avatar. My only options are “Choose File” and “Upload Image”. As a user, I am FORCED to upload an image (which, from #1, is then lost anyway). If I do upload an image, I am then returned to the same avatar page with the default (mystery man) avatar and the same two options (Choose File and Upload Image).
Some help establishing a simple “accept this avatar” button would be appreciated.
I’m using most current BuddyPress 1.2.8 with WP3.1.2.
