Better avatar crop function
I’m wondering the same. It’s very difficult to crop an image with the current crop function.
Do you recommend I wait until the official release of 1.1?
If you can help it, and you are comfortable porting your theme over (eventually maybe?) then I would suggest it, yes. Estimated release for 1.1 is September 30, so it’s only a few days away.
Nope, just have no idea what day it is anymore. Haha!
1.1 rc got better cropping function, I mean, fixed major bugs people were reporting, right?
I’m running 1.1 RC and can affirm the other answers. The cropping in 1.0.3 was terrible but now it works like a charm.
im having major issues with this unfortunatly, when i upload an image it does show up, but the quality is much lower then the original file quality, plus the image is too small to crop properly.
i suggest my users using Gravatar right now, but i want to give them the oppertunity to just upload an avatar.
here’s a screengrab: http://twitpic.com/ju16r
this is when a user uploaded a picture.
i think for some reason the crop function is not working properly.
is there a solution for this?
ps: i changed my theme, if it’s a CSS error which tags in what file should i change to get this to work? i’ve changed the standard BP theme
Which version of BuddyPress are you running? Which version of WPMU?
Buddypress 1.1 and the most recent version of WPMU… 2.8.4 i believe
I was wondering if you’ve seen a problem with 1.1 duplicating the jcrop-holder div. Basically it shows two crop panels and one preview panel when uploading any avatar. Running a clean install of mu 2.8.4 and BP 1.1.
This also happens with the new default theme.
Any pointers would be appreciated!! Thank you.
I figured my problem out. The front-end editor plugin, when the edit site name and description functions are activated (which they are by default), the header is duplicated, which loaded the crop js twice. Disable that or switch to inline editor and everything is fine.
