Avatars of member not showing in all blogs

    really? No one has a solution?

    What version of BuddyPress and WordPress are you using?

    We had this same issue with our installation. The problem is in bp_core_avatar_upload_path and bp_core_avatar_url functions located in bp-core/bp-core-avatars.php.

    For bp_core_avatar_upload_path I changed this line:
    ` $upload_dir = WP_CONTENT_DIR . ‘/blogs.dir/’ . BP_ROOT_BLOG . ‘/files/’;`

    `$upload_dir = WP_CONTENT_DIR . ‘/uploads’;`

    For bp_core_avatar_url I changed this line:
    `$upload_dir = str_replace( get_blog_option( $current_blog->blog_id, ‘home’ ) , get_blog_option( BP_ROOT_BLOG, ‘home’ ), $upload_dir );`

    `$upload_dir = get_blog_option( BP_ROOT_BLOG, ‘home’ ) . ‘/wp-content/uploads/’;`

    This is probably not the best way to fix this but it works.



    Christian Liem,

    Worked thanks



    SInce BP 1.2.6 has the same problem, I would like to open my idea, which is based on @liemcc.

    As $upload_dir in bp-core-avatars.php seems to be correct, I changed $upload_dir only.

    At line 571 or so,

    `[ Original ]
    $upload_dir = str_replace( get_blog_option( $current_blog->blog_id, ‘home’ ) , get_blog_option( BP_ROOT_BLOG, ‘home’ ), $upload_dir );

    [ Changed ]
    $upload_dir = get_home_url( BP_ROOT_BLOG, ‘/’ ) . get_blog_option( BP_ROOT_BLOG, ‘upload_path’);`

    Note: There are some other way of correction, and I selected the above becuase I do not want to write the direct path like “/wp-content/” in case upload path changes in the future again.
    The reason why we have to change the original script is that WP 3.0.1 has changed upload path for the Blog ID 1 from blogs.dir to “wp^content/uploads” unless we change the default upload path, where “BP_ROOT_BLOG” means Blog ID 1.

    I hope this will be helpful for everyone and the next-version BP.



    It’s happening again any suggestions?

    If you guys have fixed a reproducible bug in 1.2.6, please please make a ticket on so we can look at it and/or fix it in core. We can’t read every single thread all of the time on this forum due to time constraints :)



    Hi! I’m having same issue. No avatars on blogs.

    On main buddypress blog, avatars works great and their url’s are like this:

    On the other blogs, avatars aren’t displaying. Their url’s are like this:

    My installation info:
    WP: 3.0.3 (updated from a WP3.0)
    BP: 1.2.6
    Multisite & subdomains.

    My .htaccess:
    `# BEGIN WordPress
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^index.php$ – [L]

    # uploaded files
    RewriteRule ^files/(.+) wp-includes/ms-files.php?file=$1 [L]

    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -f [OR]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -d
    RewriteRule ^ – [L]
    RewriteRule . index.php [L]
    # END WordPress`

    Is it fixed for next release of buddypress? or is there a patch that I could apply?

    Thanks at all

    Andrea Rennick


    Look at the posts above yours: some DID post a patch up above. Did you try it?

    did you look at trac to see if a ticket was filed? If not, can you file a ticket?



    Yes, I found a ticket filled so I think It will be corrected on next version:

    For the moment, Is there any way to replace by_core_avatar_url() function without hacking de core directly?
    Maybe replacing an action or applying a filter?



    @overdrive I don’t if it may help you, but helped me:

    function bp_core_avatar_url_fix() {
    global $current_blog;

    // Get upload directory information from current site
    $upload_dir = wp_upload_dir();

    // If multisite, and current blog does not match root blog, make adjustments
    if ( bp_core_is_multisite() && BP_ROOT_BLOG != $current_blog->blog_id )
    $upload_dir = ‘/wp-content/uploads’;

    return $upload_dir;
    add_action( ‘bp_core_avatar_url’, ‘bp_core_avatar_url_fix’);

    Thanks @dancort
    This works for me
