    Did anyone run into the same problem?

    I got WP installed in a subfolder, if that can help finding a solution.

    All avatars paths for members and groups are broken.

    The phisical files are still in wp-content/uploads.

    Any hints?

    Were uploaded avatars working for you before BP 1.2.3?

    Looks like your entire site is using gravatars at the moment.

    No obvious idea. You didn’t change something in a core file previously or anything like that? Will be interesting to see if anyone else reports this.

    I did nothing at all. Just upgraded.

    But: while upgrading I got 2 fatal errors. 1 from Tweetstram, the other form BP Album+.

    I renamed the plugins to deactivate them, and once I got my admin back I re-activated them.

    Don’t know if that has anything to do, but I rather report everyghing that happend.

    r-a-y, I know, it’s just gravatars all over the place. But why? And especially, what should I do to point it back to avatars?

    Nothing changed with avatars from 1.2.2.1 to 1.2.3.

    Than I just don’t know. Still, i got that right after the upgrade and I need to fix that.

    Any idea how?

    Can I upload avatars FOR the members, as an admin?

    Is there a way to re-point to the old avatars.

    I want to consider asking members to re-upload their avatars as the very last solution.

    Well, let’s do one thing at a time

    What happens when you upload a new avatar?

    My user’s avatars disappeared after update too. Now when I upload a new pic, it just displays the alt text, and no image.

    Same issue, just updated to 1.2.3 from 1.2.2.1 today and cannot upload a new avatar image since the old ones disappeared. Also had fatal errors when using the automatic upgrade. Needed to delete buddypress and do a complete fresh install.

    In 1.2.2.1 needed to use the following to correct a cropping issue. Tried it on 1.2.3 and it does not help with the missing image. Not sure if this is still a problem in 1.2.3. Also using BP Album+.

    To correct cropping issue:

    Go to Settings -> Miscellaneous Settings

    Set “Store uploads in this folder” to “wp-content/uploads”.

    Set “Full URL path to files” to the REAL FULL PATH of your uploads.

    Then change bp-core-avatars.php line 389:

    Replace:

    if ( !$path = get_option( ‘upload_path’ ) )

    $path = WP_CONTENT_DIR . ‘/uploads';

    With:

    if ( !$path = get_option( ‘upload_path’ ) )

    $path = WP_CONTENT_DIR . ‘/uploads';

    else $path = ABSPATH . $path;

    Sorry for the late reply, different time zone (Europe). I just woke up.

    I forget the modified code I had on the bp-core-avatars.php file for the avatars fix.

    I put it back as kb734 suggested, and now the avatars are working again.

    I’ll write a note that I need to do that for each upgrade.

    Should this be considered for the core files in the next release?

    I’ve added this code to the 1.2 branch so you should not need to do this for future versions if you have defined a custom upload path. Thanks kb734.

    the avatar has vanished from my site too with the new version.

    i dont have Settings -> Miscellaneous Settings in my wordpress MU version:(

    Tagging this thread. The problem with uploading and cropping member avatars reappeared after upgrading from bp 1.2.2.1 to 1.2.3. I originally had to do the fix mentioned by kb734 in version 1.2.2.1. Hopefully this will be fixed in the next release. Just one note, I did not have to define the full url path in Settings -> Miscellaneous Settings. I just left it blank and problem solved.

    This is an old thread from 6 months ago based on 1.2.3. I’d recommend creating a new thread for this.

    I have done this, but got no reply. It is very very importan for me to fix this as soon as possible. I cant believe that I am the only one with this problem…
