#2493 closed defect (bug) (fixed)

avatars are erroneous and misleading

Reported by: ronia Owned by:
Milestone: 1.2.6 Priority: critical
Severity: Version:
Component: Component - Core Keywords: avatar, blog comments
Cc: paulhastings0@…


Buddpress Avatars are not seen in comments in blogs.
As well as Gravatars are not working properly in Wordpress 3.

Default gravatar is always a specific type and does not change to other types on display even when changed at the admin level.

Pl. see

When users upload their own Avatar from Buddypress, these gravatar still sticks onto the blog posts and comments - and refuses to go and show the user-uploaded image instead.

Can anyone confirm this?

I can confirm that I'm getting the same admin screenshot only on blog id #1, but not on the BP root blog (which for me is blog id #2). However, this doesn't affect avatars on the front-end.

I can confirm this as well. Using WP 3.0/BP 1.2.5. Avatars for groups and members seem to be either missing or the reference is now broken for them. Were working fine with WP 3.0/BP 1.2.4 and prior combinations.

In case it is a factor, our theme is a heavily modified version of the Aperture theme from Woothemes. You can see the issue in action here:

I have a similar problem. I upgraded BP to 1.2.5 from and my avatars disappeared. I cant upload new ones to replace the existing ones.

Stumbled across this problem as well. JJJ, I know you're patching, but here's a gesture in the direction of what's wrong:

We have this problem on and WP 3.0 ... would love to try a patch when it becomes available.

WPMS 3.0 and BP

I can confirm that this problem exists for all blogs on our site (including the root blog) but only in "Settings" >> "Discussion" of the Dashboard .

Like I said, this problem is only occurring for us in "Settings" >> "Discussion" of the Dashboard. So it doesn't actually show up on the blog itself, just in that section of the blog dashboard.

Same here, I'd be happy to test something when this patch comes out.
