Re: Avatars / profile-pictures
Your right, on the RC-1 I can upload an avatar during signup, I can also change it afterwards with a new image in my profile… Funny I didnt see that!
I guess it confused me a little that I was unable to change my avatar on the new buddypress.org layout without going to gravatar.com. (Not like RC-1)
Your avatar will be used on your profile and throughout the site.
Avatars on BuddyPress are controlled by the globally recognized avatar system (Gravatar). To change or create a new avatar for your account, please login or signup at: http://gravatar.com.
If you are signing up for a new Gravatar account, make sure you use the same email address that is registered with your WordPress.org account.
So I would have to goto gravatar.com and upload a new avatar instead of just uploading it on the buddypress site. I guess the avatars on the new layout is all controlled by gravatar.com.
