Good news to everyone experiencing the same problem. I tested in the next version of buddypress (not yet released) and it’s working.
Hi Guys I was also suffering with this avatar upload image cropping problem for the last 2 weeks, I had thought that this would be a problem due to using wordpress for multisite or may be a problem with new wordpress and buddypress integration but finally I found that this was due to a little plugin that I never thought can cause such issue.
This plugin name is “sliding readmore”.
As I removed this plugin all the problem goes away with image cropping.
@hozefasmile2007 Thanks for sharing your find. Got it, Sliding Readmore plugin conflict with cropping of avatar image uploads.
I don’t have the Sliding Readmore plugin and still experience this problem (can’t crop — image crops only upper left corner of photo) — I experience the issue firefox 22.214.171.124 for PC. Site is http://www.malaria.com
I’m with @tfirma2000 still experiencing the same behavior. Any other suggestions?
Hi everyone… I’m joining this discussion late, but I think I can offer some help… From my own personal experience it definitely was a conflict between /js files (jquery).
I installed buddypress and the cropping worked fine, then I did some custom work in the code (none related to buddypress) that needed jquery (thereby needing a link in my main header include to the /js folder for the source). When I went back to test the cropping feature, it did not work. I had the same problems that have already been stated here. My fix was relatively easy because my jquery was only needed for the home (index.php) page, so I removed the for my custom jquery from the header (NOT THE BUDDYPRESS) and instead added it to the body of my index page. Once I removed the jquery I added, the cropping worked again like a charm.
I assume (actually I’m pretty sure) buddypress uses jquery for croping the images and therefore other scripts that use jquery might conflict. This could mean any jquery widgets might interfere (even drop-down menus, sliding galleries, etc)… If they use jquery, you may have a problem —- at least that is what I found out for me.
I hope this information helps some people out.
@rsib2000 Could this jquery conflict only show up in certain OS’s? I’m having no problems cropping or updating my avatar (Win 7, Chrome 11.0.696.68/IE8/FF4.0.1), but folks with OSX (they’ve tried it with FF, Chrome, and Safari) can’t. From what I know of js, this shouldn’t be an issue. Any insights?
