    You can upload an avatar image of your choosing either during the signup process or afterwards by going to your profile > change avatar. Did this change somehow and I haven’t noticed?



    Hi Burtadsit,

    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 layout without going to (Not like RC-1)

    It says:

    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:

    If you are signing up for a new Gravatar account, make sure you use the same email address that is registered with your account.

    So I would have to goto 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 :)

    Ok Andy,

    Anyways, thanks for all your fantastic work on BB. Love the new layout. There’s some issues with the tables breaking here and there in my browser (IE7) but I guess your already aware of that.



    I have a Gravatar account with me photograph, but for the heck of me I don’t know how to put it here :)



    I see that buddypress stores the images in the wp-content directory. I however cannot for the life of me find a reference in the database to the image. It simply stores the avatar a directory based on the member ID. Am I missing something?

    Many thanks.



    Avatars are not stored or referenced in the database.
