Request for help: issue with WordPress/Buddypress Avatars after update WordPress
Dear Buddypress team,
Hopefully you can help me out with the following problem:
Since the update to the latest version of WordPress (4.8.1), I have an issue with avatar display between Buddypress and WordPress. I did not have this issue before.
Users can upload their avatars via the Buddypress profile page on my website:
Front page –> Community –> Profile (visible once you log in) –> Change Profile Photo.
Now the situation is as follows:
– The avatars that are uploaded via the Buddypress profile page are still visible on all the Buddypress pages and widgets.
– But in the past these uploaded avatars where also visible on OTHER WordPress pages on my website, including in widgets from other plugin makers: VG community widget on the homepage in the right sidebar (bbPress plugin) and VG comment widget on the homepage in the right sidebar (Themezee plugin).
– Now the avatars that you upload on the Buddypress profile page is not visible anymore in these other widgets/plugins/wordpress pages.
After some research this is my conclusion for now:
It seems this is a bug from BuddyPress plugin. The profile images can’t be synchronized with WordPress User anymore. Users already added their profile images via the Buddypress profile page, but in WordPress the user avatars are blank.
(bbPress plugin) and (Themezee plugin) get the avatar from WordPress user, so in this case, they can’t get any images.
I need this issue to be fixed. But to get it fixed and before we will make any changes, I need to know what exactly the problem is.
In attempt to resolve the issue I regenerated all images in the website using the wp-cli command ‘wp media regenerate’.
The regeneration of all images has been completed but the issue persists.
I also verified that none of my plugins needs updating.
It could be a compatibility issue of the Buddypress plugin with WordPress 4.8.1. I can’t think of another reason.
Do you please have a solution? I’m hesitant to re-install Buddypress, because this caused problems in the past with my BBpress login widget (which I prefer to use). I also don’t think re-installing or re-activating is the issue.
