Avatar Upload Failure

    When I try to upload an avatar (.jpg) to my profile on buddypress.org, I get the following error:

    “Upload Failed! Error was: Unable to create directory /avatars/7491911. Is its parent directory writable by the server?”

    If this basic feature is not working on the BuddyPress site, should I expect this and other issues when installing BuddyPress on my own site (we can’t always rely on Gravatar)? I do not believe that the problem is my computer or picture file, and I would love to know the cause of the error.

    BuddyPress.org doesn’t support avatar uploads. We ought to really remove that option.

    Use testbp.org to see an out-of-the-box BuddyPress site.
