    Anyway to change the default avatar to something specific rather than the gravatar defaults?

    Trying to figure out the same thing…

    btw, I ended up using a js hack on this. Not ideal at all. I haven’t kept up to date on the way BP handles gravatars/avatars, though, so I’m curious what’s new on that front. Anyone?

    Not much, though the uploaded picture directory was moved a few versions agao.

    Try this: upload an avatar file to the BuddyPress plugin folder here: buddypress/bp-core/images/

    Now edit file bp-core-avatars.php located in the buddypress/bp-core/ folder , find line #141 and change the avatar file name on the end of the line per your needs, e.g.
    Code:

    $default_grav = apply_filters( ‘bp_core_mysteryman_src’, BP_PLUGIN_URL . ‘/bp-core/images/avatar.jpg’ );

    Now login to your main blog, go to BuddyPress tab -> General Settings and be sure the Mystery Man is checked as the default avatar.

    You’re done. You have now your default gravatar created by you

    So’s to not modify other files, you can also serve it up through functions.php:

    //serving up a different default avatar for members
    function set_default_member_avatar($url) {
    return get_stylesheet_directory_uri() .’/images/new_and_improved_avatar.png’;
    }
    add_filter(‘bp_core_mysteryman_src’, ‘set_default_member_avatar’);
