    Hey, I’m currently experiencing horrible avatar quality in topic view on BBPress. From what I’ve seen in the files, in addition to simply right clicking on a topic-view avatar and hitting view image (Firefox), the forum is taking the standard thumbnail size avatar (which is 15×15) and enlarging it to about 79×79, resulting in a blurry mess. Is there any way to fix this, or get a better quality in-topic avatar size?

    Thank you in advance for any help or insight!

    I kinda noticed thumbnails were blurry too sometimes. Hmm.



    Yes, I’ve noticed this too. They aren’t blurry in the person’s or group’s avatar, but they are blurry when they are added to a status update. For instance, the group avatar when I post in a group is fine but then it is included in the status update and there it is blurry.

    I’ve noticed this problem also. Does anyone know how to fix this issue?



    Does anyone have a solution for this?



    Yep, I’ve also noticed this. I expect there is a very easy way to fix this.

    Gonna talk to my developer now and will report back.

    If anyone has an idea in the meantime, let me know!



    The images are blurry like an image is set to progressive and then it doesn’t fully load … Could there be a setting somewhere that is interfering with the image loading fully?

    Also having this problem. Been playing with solutions…err, attempted solutions. No luck. It’s odd.
