    and again I try to upload an avatar via my computer and i get this error >> Upload Failed! Error was: Unable to create directory /home/buddypress/public_html/wpmu/wp-content/blogs.dir/1/files/avatars/5009. Is its parent directory writable by the server?

    Why does BP hate me? :-))

    Well, is blogs.dir writable by the server? (both file owner and file permissions)

    Are you talking about uploading an avatar to buddypress.org?
    If so, that’s a known bug on the site.

    However, you can set your gravatar at gravatar.com and buddypress.org should pick it up.

    Hi Ray

    Yes, I mean here at buddypress.org neither my gavatar shows here nor can i upload an avatar to buddypress.org

    My gavatar is set http://en.gravatar.com/caferg ..and shows at many websites that use gavatar, including wordpress.com ..why not here at buddypress.org.

    I know this has been a an issue/bug here at BP ..this topic is over 3 months old. But isnt it time its fixed? It may seem trivial but sometimes its the small errors that affect the larger errors.

    On a secondary note ..all these generic avatars makes BP look unprofessional. (thats meant to be helpful).

    Thanks again :-)

    why cant i “still” upload my own avatar ..or why doesnt BP still not use my “gavatar”?

    this the error message i get when i try to upload my own avatar..

    Upload Failed! Error was: Unable to create directory /home/buddypress/public_html/wpmu/wp-content/blogs.dir/1/files/avatars/5009. Is its parent directory writable by the server?

    Thanks!

    Keeping the faith,

    Rg
