    Hi, I’m using WP 3.1.3 + BP 1.2.8. I’ve searched alot of forums but I’m having trouble finding a fix. Avatars show fine in the dashboard but the website itself only displays default avatars.

    Hi, can someone please point me in the right direction for this problem? I can’t go public with my site until the avatars are displaying properly. This is driving me crazy.

    BuddyPress doesn’t let you set or view the avatars in the wp-admin areas, so that’s a bit of a red herring. So, when you go to upload an avatar, how far do you get? Can you crop the image and save it OK? And then there’s just nothing in that person’s profile picture (“mystery man”?)?

    Have you tried looking inside your wp-content/uploads/ folder to see if the images are being saved?
    Are there any error messages in your web server’s PHP log file?
    Are you running on multisite, and if so, if BuddyPress running on blog ID #1, or?

    I can infact see the avatars in the WordPress dashboard, right there on the first page, under “recent comments” and again in the “users” section. When I select “crop image” it says “Your new avatar was uploaded successfully!” and it keeps showing the mystery man. The avatars are uploading fine, they’re in the directory, and displaying properly in the dashboard. However, any page that is supposed to display the avatar image (outside of the dashboard) is still displaying and also fetching the mystery man image, according to the source code when viewed in the browser. I just have the one domain, I’m using “public_html” as my root, which is 1 directory deeper than the actual root, as set up by my server. There hasn’t been any error reports (my error log is still empty).

    Can anyone give me some advice on how to troubleshoot this problem? I’m pretty new to PHP, perhaps there’s a debug plugin that can help find the issue?

    Not clear whether you answered DJPaul – Did you look inside your wp-content/uploads/ folder to see if the images are being saved?

    Deactivate all plugins except BuddyPress and change to bp-default theme, clear cache. Check if avatars show up in front end. If not, upload avatar and see if it was properly uploaded in server –> wp-content/uploads/

    I have a similar problem …
    New images are saved on the server but not in the right place :
    ../wp-content/uploads/avatars/hash-bpthumb.jpg instead of ../wp-content/uploads/avatars/{$id}/hash-bpthumb.jpg

    The problem is the path is not correctly set by bp …
    I’m looking into the code for a quick fix.

    The files are uploading to wp-content/uploads/avatars/(numeric value)/([hash]-bpthumb).ext

    I’ve disabled all plugins and rolled it over to the default theme. How do I clear the cache?

    Edit: Oh my, they actually display on the default theme. I’ll try rolling it up from here…

    Apparently WP-Framework just isn’t gonna cut it, way too many problems. I’ve simply switched themes. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.
