  • @shanebp No, that’s not it because the images looked great after uploading and prior to cropping. It was only after the page reloaded after cropping that they looked pixilated. And as I said earlier, I verified that the images after cropping were 650×250. And also, I’d still be having the issue if your guess was correct. I can’t explain why this worked but it did the trick. The server limits would take care of images too large anyways.

    Ok, this is solved as far as I can tell. Line 35 of bp-core-avatars.php has been updated. Specifying the max file size seems to have fixed this.

    `define( ‘BP_AVATAR_ORIGINAL_MAX_FILESIZE’, 5120000 );`

    `define( ‘BP_AVATAR_ORIGINAL_MAX_FILESIZE’, 5120000*5120000 );`

    I don’t really know why this was necessary but it fixed the issue. If anyone who is more knowledgable than me can explain this to me or maybe someone else who finds this thread, that’d be great. If not, maybe they find the answer and that’s enough. I don’t know if this is a bug or not either. Thanks!

    @shanebp, the crop tool produces any aspect ratio you choose. With my bp-custom modifications, the crop tool produces 650x250px images just fine with the exception of the image quality. Something is reducing the quality. I thought @djpaul was on to something and might still be, but his suggestion didn’t fix it.

    Thanks for replying @shanebp and @djpaul. I tried the JPG Image Quality plugin but that made no difference. The image compression is way less than 90% of the original image quality. I set it to 100 and the image looks the same. I’m uploading JPGs at various sizes. As I’ve said, I have pre-cropped to the exact size at 72 and 300 dpi with no success. I’ve also tried using uncropped images that are 3000px wide. Here’s my bp-custom.php code as requested:

    `// Modify Avatar Sizes
    define ( ‘BP_AVATAR_THUMB_WIDTH’, 130 );
    define ( ‘BP_AVATAR_THUMB_HEIGHT’, 50 );
    define ( ‘BP_AVATAR_FULL_WIDTH’, 650 );
    define ( ‘BP_AVATAR_FULL_HEIGHT’, 250 );`

    I’m calling the full size in my profile-loop file. I verified that the images are indeed 650×250 at 72 dpi but the file size is being reduced by the uploading/cropping. Thanks again for any help.

    A little more information:
    Image before upload: 139 KB
    Image after upload: 41KB

    There’s something wrong with a reduction of this magnitude when the image was pre-cropped to the exact size it needed to be before upload. I still can’t find any information on this.

    @modemlooper, it’s a custom BP child theme and the issue is fixed now. I had a guy help me find the issue. I don’t really understand how it was fixed but the important thing is that it’s fixed. I didn’t even know this thread was responded to.

    “A couple of things – first, I found that the trigger was JavaScript driven, so I tracked back the jQuery directions that ran it. I found that they were using jQuery to set a cookie – but there was no jQuery cookie package installed, so I added that. Then, I noted that it *seemed* like that jQuery code was setting a cookie for ‘mobile’ rather than for ‘normal’ when it ran — so it seemed like it was working backwards. I’m not honestly certain which of these changes worked — but as a combination, it worked.”

    @hnla I would like to possibly hire you to modify the BP User Profile Map plugin in another way but cannot find any other way to contact you. Please contact me so I can give you more details, etc. Thanks!

    Oh, cool. I never knew that tool existed. Thanks @aces For now, I’ve just hidden certain menu items with CSS until I find a better way.

    @hnla , Can the map be displayed where the Location field is in the profile field groups? Even with a function call, we cannot insert the map into the buddypress profile fields because of the way the code displays the data.

    This is what is output and where I’d like to place my map:

    12 Sesame St, City, NY 90210


    Basically, I want the map displayed between the username/address and a long bio field. I’d use CSS to push the map down on the page but each profile length varies depending on content of course. Any ideas?

    @hnla Wow, I had no idea this thread was replied to. BP really needs a notification system like WP. Thanks for the update!

    @r-a-y thanks for the advice. This works but unfortunately the image size is still in place. I now have a 1 pixel x 1 pixel image stretched to 650px by 250px when a user doesn’t upload an avtar. This is still further than I was but not a very elegant solution.

    Seems like there should be a way to write it so the avatar is only displayed if there was one uploaded. If not, nothing is displayed just like the extended profile field data “if bp_field_has_data”. Again, thanks for the help!

    Ha, I can’t even hack bp-core-avatars.php correctly. I thought I could just remove the default avatar check but that’s not working either. All I can manage to do is break the URL which of course looks ugly and is not ideal. I imagine adding a class to the default mystery man image would be easy for some. Would anyone mind lending a hand? I fail.

    `define ( ‘BP_AVATAR_DEFAULT’, BP_PLUGIN_URL . ” );`

    This doesn’t seem to work in bp-custom.php either. I thought for sure I had a solution. I tried to alter the path of the default avatar to be used in hopes of using a 1px invisible image but this doesn’t seem to work.

    I also tried to set the width of the default avatar to no avail.
    `define ( ‘BP_AVATAR_DEFAULT_WIDTH’, 1 );`

    Could I assign a custom class to the mystery man so I can hide with CSS? Currently there is only a user ID assigned and nothing specific to mystery man. Anyone able to help with that?

    Is there a filter I can add to bp-customs.php that will skip the mystery man?
    `add_filter( ‘bp_core_default_avatar_no_grav’, ‘__return_true’ );`

    I’m already using the one that skips the Gravatar.
    `add_filter( ‘bp_core_fetch_avatar_no_grav’, ‘__return_true’ );`

    Any ideas? My last resort would be to hack bp-core-avatars.php but I don’t want to do anything preventing upgrading of course.

    Can anyone help with this? I can get the fields to display but they aren’t conditional. If a user doesn’t fill out a field, a blank space is displayed rather than the lower fields moving up. I can’t get Website or Email to hyperlink either. Is there another way of going about this all together?

    I still don’t have a good solution to this. I did however add some styling to member-header.php that will only apply to my single member profile pages. This removes the top and bottom margin for the automatically generated paragraph tags for hyperlinks. This to me is a hack but it’s all I can muster without help. If anyone has any other insight, I’d love to hear.

    p, a {
    margin: 0!important;

    @hnla @WillDWhite I am searching for the same exact thing. I need to display the map under the profile address but above some other profile fields and I can’t do this with the admin options. Is there a template tag you found? I’m not aware of other plugins that will achieve this profile map. It’s a really good idea. Thanks in advance.

    @crotin Are you sure about needing the country name? Google works pretty well even using locations like “near new york”. Even just a street number and street seem to return locations for me depending on how common the street. I added a profile field description stating that they had to fill in a complete address (street, city, state, zip) in order for the map to display). If they don’t follow directions, what else can you do?

    Ah, I got it. I realized I was using the default profile field as the Business Name. I also found BuddyPress Real Names plugin. .

    @cspreston thanks for replying. I emailed you back.



    Thanks @boonebgorges I appreciate the help. Going in to BP, I thought it would be a simple function to filter members. You said this won’t scale infinitely so would you foresee an issue with a site having 300 members where I’d want to display 10 filtered lists on a page? For instance, a list broken up into 10 categories? I’ll be diving in to this over the weekend but first wondered if this is a safe path to travel or if this won’t work for me. Thanks again!



    Thanks @mercime that worked perfectly! I’m sure others have the same issue.



    Ok, so I think I am still experiencing the CSS issue on page editing screens because I am developing a child theme of bp-default. I updated the functions.php file as provided on the ticket but am I supposed to alter my child theme functions.php file? I have no idea how that would go. Maybe I’m barking up the wrong tree? Please help! :)

    `if ( !function_exists( ‘bp_dtheme_enqueue_styles’ ) ) :
    function bp_dtheme_enqueue_styles() {
    // Bump this when changes are made to bust cache
    $version = ‘20111102’;
    // Register main stylesheet
    wp_register_style( ‘child-theme’, get_stylesheet_directory_uri() . ‘/style.css’, array(), $version );
    // Enqueue main stylesheet
    wp_enqueue_style( ‘child-theme’ );
    add_action( ‘wp_print_styles’, ‘bp_dtheme_enqueue_styles’ );



    Sorry if this is the wrong place for this. I updated functions.php using the file given in but it hasn’t fixed the issue on page editing screens. I first tried pasting the code in manually, then I tried uploading the provided file found on the ticket. Am I missing something?

    add_action( ‘wp_enqueue_scripts’, ‘bp_dtheme_enqueue_styles’ );



    I’m experiencing what @Marcus is describing. My background color, image, and website width are coming through to the page edit screen. There is no where else I’ve found that this is carrying over to. Everything else so far is great. Running 3.3 and 1.5.2.
