    Hi thanks for the quick reply, I followed instructions and as soon as I apply the code in bp-core-avatars.php line 389 I get white screen of death:

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


    $path = WP_CONTENT_DIR . ‘/uploads';
else
$path = ABSPATH . $path;

    Hope you didn’t copy and paste the characters as-is because the characters aren’t correct.

    Try this instead:

    if ( !$path = get_option( 'upload_path' ) )
    $path = WP_CONTENT_DIR . '/uploads';
    else
    $path = ABSPATH . $path;

    I hope I’m right in saying the last issue I face, aside the css, is the upload permissions. Apache doesn’t seem to be able to create folders so if I want to upload an avatar or document I get:

    Upload Failed! Error was: Unable to create directory wp-content/uploads/avatars/6. Is its parent directory writable by the server?

    I’ve checked all my folders; buddypress theme pack, uploads etc and all is set to 755. If I set wp content to 777 everything works as it should. I know this should work with 755 though. Any ideas please?

    Something to do with owner permissions.

    Do a search on google for “wordpress upload owner permissions”.

    can anyone point me to where I can set the correct config for avatar uploads, I get this error when I try to upload:

    Upload Failed! Error was: Unable to create directory hillguitars.co.uk/httpdocs//group-avatars/3. Is its parent directory writable by the server?

    httpdocs//group-avatars/ the // indicates wp-content/uploads is missing from the url but I can’t see where this is set.

    extra info: wp3 with network site hillguitars.co.uk & students.hillguitars.co.uk

    I’ve added define ( ‘BP_ENABLE_MULTIBLOG’, true ); on wp-config and got buddy press working on network blogs ie.

    I have read through every post on this subject and followed all of the advise implicitly but have an url error I just can’t rectify. My upload process works correctly placing an image in dir wp-content/uploads/group-avatars/3/file name.jpg but when it reloads to crop the thumb it returns a bad url with the wp-content/ missing eg

    http://domain.tld/uploads/group-avatars/3/okso_big2.jpg

    If I remove file upload path from options.php and set the full url I get this returned on attempting an upload wp-content/uploads missing and it breaks the path to the standard wp media library

    Upload Failed! Error was: Unable to create directory domain.tld/httpdocs//group-avatars/3. Is its parent directory writable by the server?

    Can anyone please tel me where the path is set in the core files to wp-content/ added to the return url

    I’ve just done a brand new installation and got this with the fix to core-avitars.php

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

    $path = WP_CONTENT_DIR . ‘/uploads';

    else

    $path = ABSPATH . $path;

    and removing the upload path and substituting with full upload url

    I’ve set up a main site and a subdomain. Both standard media library uploads work OK. But when I enable BiddyPress and try to create an avatar I get…
