BP 2.7.0 – Problem uploading profile pictures and personal gallery media

  • Scaffies


    Hello all,

    after the update to v2.7.0 (from the latest before) member of the type “Subscriber” / “Participant” can no longer upload new profile pictures, or pictures, video, or audio to their personal galleries. The upload process starts, then ends with “HTTP error.” – no other data.

    It still works fine for administrators – so I assume, maybe some access rights may have changed?

    Thanks for looking into it!

    I did the tests you recommended and it was my W3 Total Cache plugin that was causing the issue. I will have to look into that to figure out what setting was messing it up. @Scaffies doesn’t have that plugin, so guess our issues were caused by different things.

    @Scaffies (@jenfilgate i’m going to ASSUME you have EXACTLY the same issue, otherwise you should make your own forum topic)

    You said:

    type “Subscriber” / “Participant” can no longer upload new profile pictures, or pictures, video, or audio to their personal galleries

    BuddyPress doesn’t have “personal galleries” built-in. We only support uploading media for group and member profile pictures, and cover images for those. You’ll need to contact the author of the plugin(s) used to provide your personal galleries, we can’t support other plugins. Sorry.



    I see you are using wordfence security plugin. There was a recent but that was preventing uploads on my BP site. You may want to check this thread in WP plugin support forum to see if it related to your problem.
