Possible resolution for avatar cropping issues

    Several people, myself included, have had issues with cropping avatars once they’ve been uploaded. After doing some plugin testing I discovered that “Dynamic Content Gallery” (http://www.studiograsshopper.ch/wordpress-plugins/dynamic-content-gallery-v2/) causes a conflict. This plugin uses SmoothGallery which in turn runs on MooTools.

    As many know, Mootools has conflicts with jQuery which is the script used for avatar cropping. I think the problem occurs because of the way Dynamic Content Gallery loads its script into wp_head. I believe this problem can possibly be resolved using the “jQuery.noConflict” command. However since I’m not familiar with javascript, I don’t know how to do it.

    The Dynamic Content Gallery plugin is a very important part of several WordPress themes, so just disabling it isn’t really an option. But of course, I also want the the ability to crop my avatars. Any solutions?

    FYI:

    I’m running WP MU 2.6.5, the latest stable version of BuddyPress (not the trunk), and using the “Revolution Church” theme (http://www.revolutiontwo.com/themes/church).

  • I don’t have the solution, but I do have an observation: the general.js file in my buddypress-combo.zip file is s zero byte file. If this is the javascript that handles cropping, then this could be your problem as well.

    Howdy. @fjk, if you have a zero byte general.js file then it’s not from the combo download. I downloaded the combo again and it’s just fine.

    Odd.

    Hello and thanks for the response. I will download the archive again double check the file.
