Cropping Avatar Removes it From Server

  • Jason Rundell


    Setup: Apache 2, BuddyPress 1.2.7 and I’ve deactivated all plugins.

    Here’s what happens:

    1) I go to edit a Group’s Avatar.
    2) Next I upload a .jpg that’s 150×150 and 5kb large. The file is successfully uploaded to /wp-content/uploads/group-avatars/1/logo.jpg
    3) Here’s where things go screwy. Next step is cropping the avatar and when I crop it I get no JavaScript errors. I can resize the handles to any ratio and there’s no JS errors for that also. But when I hit the Crop image button to finish, the logo.jpg file on the server disappears and the final avatar is still not updated.

    I get no server errors at all (checked apache error.log and access.log). It just disappears. Anyone else getting this? Anyone have additional trouble shooting I should try?

    Thanks residentcusano, but I figured it out! The PHP GD library wasn’t installed on my server :) Once I did that it worked.

    Hi @jasonrundellfcl,

    I’m having the exact same problem. Does buddypress have a dependency on some non-standard php libraries? Can you provide any more info?

    Thanks in advance.
