    Do we also have functions to cutomize group avatar output size?

    <?php bp_group_avatar() ?>

    I’ve found the function to customize user avatars, but can’t find for the group avatar.

  • No way of doing this via code. It probably ought to go on Trac as an enhancement suggestion.

    In the interim you can probably use CSS to “resize” the image after the page’s loaded, though, not knowing exactly what/where you want the image to appear different, I’m reluctant to suggest the CSS.

    did you figure this out?

    bp_group_avatar accepts the following args

    $defaults = array(
    ‘type’ => ‘full’,
    ‘width’ => false,
    ‘height’ => false,
    ‘class’ => ‘avatar’,
    ‘id’ => false,
    ‘alt’ => __( ‘Group avatar’, ‘buddypress’ )
    );

    Sorry, but… Could you explain that so a newbie could get it too? :) Where, What and How are questions that often pop into my head reading the forums…

    I’m not sure why this still isn’t possible – in the default theme the image seems to be hard coded to read 150×150 but there is plenty of space all around it. It would be great if anyone could tell me where I could change the dimensions. Stretching the image through css would probably look bad.

    Thanks

    bp_group_avatar(‘type=full&width=75&height=75′)

    Change height and width.

    Hi. Which page are you guys actually doing this editing … groups/single/group-header.php?

    It would be better to have a separate long thin image rather than a square creating lots of white space around it.

    I tried changing it but it makes no difference. Removing the section at least removed the avatar.

    How does one change the size of, or even remove, the group avatar image?

    There is too much wasted space causing too much unnecessary scrolling down for users in default styles.

    @modemlooper, I do not think that CSS is defined in any of the CSS stylesheets.

    To edit avatar size, unfortunately, it will edit the size of avatars on all headers on your site with the avatar (members)

    go into your buddypress default.css and you will be able to edit it from there.

    I’m coming across the same barrier… Pulling the group image at different sizes is fine, however when you try and modify the group avatar size from the group admin perspective, it get’s a bit tricky. Try and upload and small icon for a group and you will notice it puts the little logo on a black background and resizes it akwardly.

    Looking for something to hook onto to modify this setting and I can’t see anything pertaining to size in the BP template set

    `

    <input type="submit" name="upload" id="upload" value="” />

    ‘delete_group_avatar’, ‘component’ => ‘groups’, ‘wrapper_id’ => ‘delete-group-avatar-button’, ‘link_class’ => ‘edit’, ‘link_href’ => bp_get_group_avatar_delete_link(), ‘link_title’ => __( ‘Delete Avatar’, ‘buddypress’ ), ‘link_text’ => __( ‘Delete Avatar’, ‘buddypress’ ) ) ); ?>

    <img src="” id=”avatar-to-crop” class=”avatar” alt=”” />

    <img src="” id=”avatar-crop-preview” class=”avatar” alt=”” />

    <input type="submit" name="avatar-crop-submit" id="avatar-crop-submit" value="” />

    <input type="hidden" name="image_src" id="image_src" value="” />

    `

    Any thoughts on how to modify size, right from the upload process?

    Really you could just resize the original thumbnails to 100px X 100px and allow BP to resize them, however you don’t also get the crispness you need when designing nice little icons.

    Or, like @modernlooper pointed out three years ago, you could just edit the template with the avatar in question and change bp_group_avatar() to bp_group_avatar(‘type=full&width=100&height=100′)
