Avatar upload from registration not working

    Running 2.7.1 and BP 1.0.2 on a shared server. GD Library is installed and enabled. I have read through the multitude of forum threads. Oh yea WP Premium avatar plugin is installed and works just fine for the blog and comments. I can upload and crop avatars in my BuddyPress profile just fine as well. It’s only when I try to upload an avatar from register.php that it fails.

    From what I can tell nothing appears in blogs.dir/(blog#) when I try to upload from register.php. There was a suggestion to comment out these two lines in .htaccess:

    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !.*wp-content/plugins.*

    RewriteRule ^(.*/)?files/(.*) wp-content/blogs.php?file=$2 [L]

    But can someone tell what, if any, impact that would have on the rest of my installation. Sorry I am not real strong on the .htaccess file so I just want to understand what those lines do and if it’s ok to just comment them out why would they be there in the first place?

    Any guidance here would be greatly appreciated.

    Ah, Andrew over at Premium just advised that I shouldn’t have to use their avatar plugin with BP so I will uninstall that and see if it fixes the problem.

    Still would like an answer to the .htaccess question above though.

    Thanks

    i think i have cooties cause i hardly ever get responses to my posts in this forum. i love buddypress but i don’t ever seem to get much help in here. oh well i think i will just remove the option to upload an avatar from my registration page and resolve my own topic.

    What other 3rd-party plugins do you have installed and activated?

    There is a growing list of plugins that interfere with the avatar uploading and/or cropping process within BP. See this thread: http://buddypress.org/forums/topic/faq-how-to-code-snippets-and-solutions#post-11864
