Remove Cover Photo Option

  • DesignLoud


    I am trying to figure out how cover photos are saved to users in the database. What I want to do is integrate an option on the Profile > Cover Photo section for the option for the user to remove a cover photo. Looking in the database I cannot seem to find where these are stored. Can someone show me an example on how to implement a “Remove Cover Photo” button/option or point me in the direction on how to accomplish this?

    Note I dont want to disable cover photos completely, just offer the ability for the user to remove the cover photo which will be replaced by a white background.

    The images are not stored in the database.
    They are stored in the uploads folder.
    For a member with user_id = 1:

    To remove the cover photo, use the ‘Delete My Cover Image’ button at the bottom of this screen:

    If you don’t see that button, it may be an issue with your theme.
    To confirm, try switching momentarily to a WP theme like 2013



    Hmm, it must be a theme override; is that button documented anywhere so that I can inspect the code that runs it?
