BuddyPress Avatars

    I have been trying to upload an image to alter avatars on my standalone buddypress installation.
    From reading elsewhere I was given to understand that the thumbnail size is ’50′ x ’50′ px so I created images this size and smaller – however it seems regardless of how small I make my images BP wants to crop them. All the resulting avatar representations are of course cropped but (ironically) are larger than the original. I hope someone can explain this to me.

    You don’t have to crop the avatar. Extend the side and/or corner of the cropping tool to full width and height and you’re good to go.

    Thanks mercime,
    I did try that but the cropping tool snaps back each time I try to extend it. But I will try making my images bigger again and provide some white space around them to see if that helps.

    Upload Failed! Error was: Unable to create directory /avatars/8421926. Is its parent directory writable by the server?

    This is the error I get when I try to add a plenty small image for my avatar… plus, buddy press says that they can use my gravatar, and when I click on that link and log into my gravatar account, buddy press does nothing… so, apparently this software is not very effective at creating profiles for social networks if its very own program has basic error messages… I guess you get what you pay for!!!!!!! free = sucks
