Avatars reset to default when activating BuddyPress
I am diving into creating a community for my workplace and buddypress rocks! I am running into an issue with avatars and it’d be great to get some guidance. Our wordpress site is installed on an IIS server and we use a custom plugin to link our Active Directory to the user table and provide Single SignOn upon accessing the site. Active Directory also handles all our staff photos, and this same custom plugin associates these photos as avatars and show up automatically when users comment, etc on the wordpress site. However, when I enable BuddyPress it seems that this association is lost and avatars revert back to the default wordpress anonymous avatar. When I deactivate BuddyPress, the association between our Active Directory photos and wordpress avatars is automatically restored. No other functionality appears to be compromised when enabling BuddyPress, just this piece of the integration baffles me.
I am running the latest version of buddypress and wordpress
Any thoughts are greatly appreciated!
