Hello everyone. I have managed to get my BuddyPress website up and running, however I am having problems with Avatars. When I click on a file to upload, it says
“Upload Failed! Error was: The GD image library is not installed.”
Can anyone help me in getting this sorted? Many thanks.
It means exactly what it says in error. Contact your webhost re: “The GD image library is not installed.”
If you are on your localhost, you would need to add/activate GD library. You have to resolve GD library addition or activation issue in whatever package you are using for your installation – xampp wamp mamp lamp etc.
Resolve this issue before installing/activating BuddyPress at https://wordpress.org/support/forum/how-to-and-troubleshooting
This is has been sorted, thanks for your help. I contacted my host and they installed GD into the server.
