@judymacmahon try to replicate with default 2020 theme
Hi this all started when I couldn’t upload a member profile image – the upload link wouldn’t open.
I contacted the 3rd party developer -I’ve deleted a plugin that was no longer supported and replaced it with a Buddy Press replacement: https://wordpress.org/plugins/bp-xprofile-custom-field-types/
This is the error I’m getting and it’s causing an ERROR RENDERING FILE.
Pagely my server have reinstated access to the dashboard and deactivated the plugin.
***here is the error info from them:
The buddypress-xprofile-custom-fields-type plugin was reporting the following php error:
[14-Sep-2020 07:42:15 UTC] PHP Fatal error: Uncaught Error:  operator not supported for strings in /dom6056/wp-content/plugins/buddypress-xprofile-custom-fields-type/bp-xprofile-custom-fields-type.php:155

thrown in /dom6056/wp-content/plugins/buddypress-xprofile-custom-fields-type/bp-xprofile-custom-fields-type.php on line 155
I went ahead and commented out line 155 of the plugin file wp-content/plugins/buddypress-xprofile-custom-fields-type/bp-xprofile-custom-fields-type.php
//$notices = __(‘BuddyPress Xprofile Custom Fields Type plugin needs <b>BuddyPress 2.5</b>, please install or upgrade BuddyPress.’, ‘bxcft’);
This seems to allow the dashboard to load but you will want to get in touch with the plugin developer for any additional information or consider looking into replacing the plugin.”
I’d like to attach a screenshot of the relevant plugins but can’t see how to do that???
Another point to note, check your PHP version. The PHP version 7.4.2 has an issue with GD Library for JPEG images. Upgrade to php version 7.4.8 or lower the php version to 7.3
I have the similar cas, when I uploaded a photo, it showed a red belt as the joint photo:
2 months before, the upload was Ok, than suddenly, it doesn’t work.
For the upload Cover Image is OK.
my WP is 5.9.2
Can someone help me ?
thank you so much !
