    I cannot change profile photo on my buddypress. I click Change Profile Photo
    Choose File
    Browse to an image (image is smaller than the upload limit in php.ini)
    image name appears
    click Upload Image
    nothing happens, does not show me the cropping image screens, does not allow changing avatar.
    This used to work and I cannot figure out what changed. I deactivated all plugins and still the same issue. I reactivated the EWWW plugin, since deactivating it did not fix my issue. I tried with 2015 theme to see if it could be buddyboss theme, but I have the same issue using 2015 theme.

    @rebekahmeuir Deactivate plugins except BuddyPress and change to the Twenty Fifteen theme. Then go to admin dashboard and navigate to Media > Add New. Can you upload images and see the thumbnails of the images you uploaded there?

    @rebekahmeuir

    thank you @mercime I did try the 2015 theme after deactivating all plugins except BuddyPress, and same issue. Yes I can upload images and see thumbnails with 2015 theme and with my BuddyBoss theme. I still have the problem with profile images not working. I also have a new issue where private messages no longer work from inside BuddyPress. I am hosted with inmotion.

    @rebekahmeuir I was able to replicate the issue using WP 4.2.2 and BP 2.2.3.1. Going to create a ticket in BuddyPress trac and post the link here.

    Double-checked and found out I was using WP_DEBUG and SCRIPT_DEBUG in the wp-config.php file of my test installation which was why I was getting the error message. Removed both and it was cleared. Could you check if you have any of those two in your wp-config.php file?


    rebekahmeuir

    @rebekahmeuir

    mine says define(‘WP_DEBUG’, false);

    and script_debug is not found in my wp-config.php

    With my issue, I am not getting any error message, and there is no error message on the server either. When I try to change a profile photo using BuddyPress, it just does not allow me to change it. It kind of “blinks” instead of bringing up the crop screen.

    Similarly, when I try to send a private message in BuddyPress, it lets me compose the message, but when I try to send it, it “blinks” with no error message but does not send the private message. The private message disappears and does not go into my sent folder, either.

    @rebekahmeuir Just helped someone who had an issue with cropping the image as well. The issue there was that the jQuery files needed were not enqueued for some reason. Could you check the source code of your webpage and see something like this is in the source ….jcrop/jquery.Jcrop.min.js?ver=0.9.12 ?

    @rebekahmeuir

    thanks again @mercime, I looked at index.php and header.php. none of them have any jquery

    when you say the source code of my webpage, I am uncertain what other files to look in.

    @mercime

    >>> when you say the source code of my webpage, I am uncertain what other files to look in
    @rebekahmeuir I mean when you’re viewing your website in the browser, right click to bring up menu and then go to View Source or View Page Source, depends on the browser you’re using. Then look for something like this: `http://yoursite.com/wp-includes/js/jquery/jquery.js?ver=1.11.2 in the source code.

    @rebekahmeuir

    Thank you again @mercime, now I see what you meant. yes I have this exact line

    http://hereswhat.net/wp-includes/js/jquery/jquery.js?ver=1.11.2′></script&gt;

    and then quite a few more script type lines with other jquery entries

    I could reproduce the error.

    For me the error only happens if the uploaded image is too small.

    My profile photo on my PC has the size 150x150px.
    I resizede it to 1500x1500px.
    I uploaded the big profile photo.
    I set the cropping to use the full image.
    I pressed the button to crop the image.

    Surprise ==> Now it worked.

    Very strange!
    (1) Uploading my small image and cropping to use the full image leads to the cropping error.
    (2) Uploading my big image (resized from the small one) and cropping to use the full image does not lead to an error.

    Probably you are not able to change the profile picture due to pixels issue. Most of the sites request to upload the profile pic in 100X to 200X pixels and no matters how you further crop it.

    You may like have a look at the photo uploaded in the about us segment of this site linked: Aadhar Card

    I still have the problem reported here with the last buddypress version 2.3.2.1.

    If I download the profile photo from my buddypress instance (150x150px) and than re-upload it to buddypress, resize it the the fullsize the following error message will be displayed:

    “There was a problem with cropping the profile photo.”
