@vegaskev maintenance mode has borked some plugins while testing. Have you tried removing maintenance mode for a minute or so to check if avatar upload issue is resolved then?
Thanks for the response @mercime. I probably should’ve mentioned that I already tried it with the ultimate maintenance mode plugin deactivated.
Also, I should note that this is the error I get in Chrome, while in safari a large file gets the ‘too big to upload’ message and a small files does get the upload, though after cropping and saving the uploaded image, I get the ‘there was a problem uploading your image’ message.
Sorry for not making all of this clear up front, truly a bad mistake on my part.
Any other thoughts as to what could be causing it?
@vegaskev possibly upload_max_filesize is limited by default to 2MB. How large are the original images being uploaded? Some people do not realize the images being uploaded from devices are waaay too large. You could change file upload size check out http://www.wpbeginner.com/wp-tutorials/how-to-increase-the-maximum-file-upload-size-in-wordpress/ or check with hosting provider.
@mercime Thanks for the assist. Close, but not quite. Apparently I was at 2MB. I’m on a private server, so no worries, upgraded via php.ini and .htaccess Change is visible in wp mediau uploader upload limit.
tested in the wp admin media uploader with a 56kb image (the same test image for all upload tests in this specific post) and all worked…until I did test on profile frontside.
I tried to upload via the buddypress profile page and here is what I got.
- 1. Was able to select an image.
- 2. When I selected ‘upload image’ I got the error below
- 3. Checked in wp-admin media library for potential image upload and none present
ERROR MESSAGE: Upload Failed! Error was: No editor could be selected.
@vegaskev I know you mentioned that you’ve got your custom theme working well in your other installations. Just want to double-check, if you change to BP Default theme, is the issue resolved?
@mercime, thank you for the advice. And for starters, I appreciate all of the time you’ve taken for this one thus far… I did, in fact, forget to do that, though in doing so I haven’t been able to produce any positive results, except I DID GET TO actually use the cropping tool this time, so I definitely got a feeling of momentum.
Here are the results from that…
With default bp theme activated, an image can be uploaded and taken to the “cropping tool”. The cropping tool seemed to function as per normal, though once I make my cropping selection I get this error…
“There was a problem cropping your avatar, please try uploading it again”
I get this in all browsers, with all plugins deactivated (besides buddypress, of course – even the coming soon plugin).
I’m starting to knock around the word “befuddled” in my head, as I haven’t been able to find anything that seems to work either.
I finally remembered having an issue similar with a non buddypress installation about a year and a half ago on another new server…..drumroll please…..you guessed it…gd library. The stackscript used on my new linode didn’t have gd library in the stack, so I just installed it, rebooted apache and blam…all is good. You may mark resolved @mercime
