Single sitewide avatar per user?
I am upgrading a site to the new BP version and one thing that rocks is the fact that BP doesn’t go to the db to get the avatar filename. That makes it feasible to access the avatar efficiently in far more places.
One little issue I see though: the URL is built using the BP_AVATAR_URL constant, which in turn is defined using bp_core_avatar_url(), which in turn uses wp_upload_dir() as the base of the path. This means that when you are in a blog other than the primary blog, it goes to that blog’s upload directory for the avatar.
Is this “by design” so that users can have different avatars for different blogs?
I know that I can hook into the filter at the end of bp_core_fetch_avatar() to change the current behavior, but before I do that I want to make sure that BP does have multiple avatars for a user.
