Multiblog/Multisite avatar missing

  • xmginc


    Very impressed with multiblog/multisite except for 1 issue: missing avatar sync on the 2nd site.

    I have tried bp-custom.php as well as various wp-config.php changes as per other forum posts.

    Unfortunately no luck so far. Would anyone have any suggestions for the latest version of WordPress + Buddypress?

    Thx so much

    Update: I have tried as many methods found in this Support Forum including bp-custom.php, functions.php, different wp-config.php options.

    The one that worked for us is via a wp-config.php modification with code from @boonebgorges here:

    // This assumes that the blog in question is #1. If it's not, the path will 
    // have blogs.dir in it
    define( 'BP_AVATAR_UPLOAD_PATH', '/var/www/html/example/wp-content/uploads' );
    // Again, assuming you're coming from #1. To pull from a different blog, 
    // it'll be or something like that
    define( 'BP_AVATAR_URL', '' );

    Also wanted to share that if we add bp-custom.php and add various fixes suggested by others it results in a fatal error with a call to undefined bp_core… perhaps there is a different issue causing other fixes to not work for us… Open to try other suggestions but so far so good with fix above.



    I had the same issue, but there’s an easy fix. please see:



    Much appreciated @eskamediawork!

    Btw, the option provided in your link works really well especially if you have a subscription to WPMU to ensure the plugin receives updates through their membership.

    And just in case for those looking for a non-plugin option, hope the wp-config option works well too.

    Thx for the suggestion!
