    when my members first login they are presented with a message in pink

    Please upload your profile photo to start using this site.

    I want to turn this off – so they can do later…

    The issue seems to be related to the Profile Settings

    Profile Photo Uploads Allow registered members to upload avatars

    which is infact making profile avatar required!

    required

    That message is not caused by BP.
    Are you using this plugin:

    Please upload your profile photo to start using this site.

    It’s likely you have a plugin activated that’s causing this message.

    Thanks Henry – is there somewhere where the Buddy press php could be causing this – as I really want to use that plugin, it is the same with other social login plugins… what happens is the oAuth API’s “pull” the avatar but this is not 100% compatible with Buddypress.

    I am hoping that a simple “recipe” could resolve this – something like: if no avatar then ok?
    what seems to be happening is when I sign up the first page I go to is

    http://mysite.com/members/wiziwiz/profile/change-avatar/

    looking deeper in the code is see this is controlled by Buddypress code <?php do_action( ‘bbp_template_notices’ ); ?> and as I said before turning off

    Allow registered members to upload avatars

    fixes it

    perhaps something related to this change avatar code could remove the block

    // Change Avatar
    	case 'change-avatar' :
    		bp_get_template_part( 'members/single/profile/change-avatar' );
    		break;

    Ok so I have tested with another plugin and it is the same issue,

    Nextend Twitter Connect also has the same bug,
    https://wordpress.org/plugins/nextend-twitter-connect/

    everything works fine – it’s just this block that the buddypress will not allow any activity until an avatar is uploaded,

    I finally have found a fix and that is turn off this setting

    Account Settings
    Allow your users to modify their account and notification settings directly from within their profiles.

    so what is that setting because the user can still change their account – will look into that setting a bit more in another thread…

    …i still have unwanted forced “please upload your profile photo to start using this site” 🙁
