croping avatar on mobile phone not supported on all mobile browsers especially operal mini and the mini versions of other mobile browsers. Also low end smartphones cannot handle this thereby, given the user no ability to change their avatar on mobile phone.work great on PC, but as we all know these days users uses their mobile phone to access internet more than PC. It would have been great if buddypress was coded specifically to allow croping on mobile phone media library before uploading to the web just like the way whatsapp does. In whatapp user must first crop the image in media library before uploading.This is the reason why I will like disable avatar croping in buddypress avatar upload.
It’s a quick and dirty approach – just removes the script necessary for the cropping to happen. You’ll still be shown the image crop step – they’ll just be no way for the user to actually do the cropping.
