The full image and the small image of my avatar are not using the same picture since I updated to 1.1
And I cannot change them because upload din't work.
Upload button is working, load message says: "avatar succesfully loaded" but no image is loaded in blogs.dir/uid

See this thread, i'm not alone

Change History (8)

Forgot to say that i tried to use my gavatar account instead, but nothing changed. My BP did not recognize my ID or what ?

To be honest your best bet is to delete all the avatars and start again. Or you can try specifically deleting any avatars that exist for your user ID.

The upload is successful, and you can see it in the avatar folder, but it is not displayed. This is not a permissions issue.

I can effectively see the gravatar in the wpmu admin interface. But it is the only place it show up.
I deactivte/activate avatar upload, changed my username/nicename to make them identical, tried different other things, nothing works.
I cannot delete /modify blogs.dir which is server dependent. Even throught ssh, i can't access. Seem's I have to ask my hoster to erase the folder.

A create a new user. Uploaded an avatar. Works
Change the avatar. Works.
The only one who's not changing anything for is the site admin.

And i can't understand how the system can show my two different avatars,
the small one is: /blogs.dir/1/files/avatars/1/dan3-avatar1.jpg
the big one: blogs.dir/1/files/avatars/1/dj_wurst1-avatar2.jpg
Folder 750 - file 640
This is not overwriten and is exactly the same settings as for the new user folder who is overwritten !
This is really strange for me.

chouf1, are you comfortable trying the 1.1 branch of updated code? I've put through an avatar upload/fetch adjustment that may help this issue.

A few solutions seem to be contained in the tread:

From that thread, it looks like there are two issues which users have come across.
1.) GD support not compiled with PHP.

Prompt> ./configure <your current build commands> --with-gd
Prompt> make
Prompt> make install

2.) Various CHMOD perms not set correctly.

  • Either grant the requested perms to the folder (which may sometimes be: chmod 755)
  • Or ask your hoster to grant the perms for you.

Refer to the info messages on the dashboard and readme files/codex for recommended perm settings.
