Avatar Cropping Issues

  • Hey,

    I am working with the latest SVN version of BP and have made changes to the theme (have not changes any of the plugin code).

    When editing my Avatar (in FF), I am able to upload the image just fine, but when it asks to crop it…it doesn’t provide to the cropping tool. So I just click on continue, and then continue again, and my image is replaced with a black square.

    Also, not sure if this is already documented, but the gray tool bar is a mess in IE7 and many of the pages to the profile area are returning 404.

    Any help would be appreciated!

    I have the same issue regarding avatars (no cropping tool) and just made a post regarding it.

    was this ever resolved? I’m having the exact same issue. When I go to upload an avatar, the picture shows up perfectly, however when i try to crop the image, the “crop” button just takes me to the next screen to “crop” the smaller image…when i click that, both avatars turn black, and that’s it.

    I’ve found that customized themes tend to be where the issues with avatar cropping start, and am guilty of this myself.

    It usually comes from one of two things.

    1. A JavaScript error in something you’ve tried to add is causing the JavaScript for the crop tool not to function.

    2. Applying a CSS style to your theme that also ends up encompasing the crop tools position, so that it is out of the visible area of the photo container.

    There is currently an open ticket for this problem on the trac site… Andy’s working on it!
