#4079 closed defect (bug) (no action required)

Avatar not working properly!

Reported by: slickremixcom's profile Owned by: justin-labadie's profile Justin Labadie
Milestone: Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 1.5.4
Component: Core Keywords: reporter-feedback
Cc: info@…


We are trying to upload avatars from a members account using WP 3.3.1 and BP 1.5.4. It is not working after we press the crop button. (we know the images are uploading but it is taking us to the home page of our wordpress and not loading in the new avatars) We are sure that it is not a browser compatibility issue being that we have tested it in Chrome, Firefox, and Safari. We have also turned off all plugins (besides buddypress) and it still is not working.

We have done some more research and checked our "error-log" file and found this error.

"PHP Warning: imagecreatefromstring() [<a href='function.imagecreatefromstring'>function.imagecreatefromstring</a>]: Empty string or invalid image in /home/sponsor/public_html/wp-includes/media.php on line 258"

PLEASE HELP! If you know how to fix please let us know how to fix the problem we are trying to get our site launched ASAP being that we have tons of people waiting on us right now and this is the last major bug on the list.

Thanks so much!

  • Severity changed from critical to normal

What theme are you using? Try switching to the BuddyPress Default theme, so you can at least narrow down whether it's due to a custom theme template.

Also, for what it's worth, your PHP warning makes it look like the problem is arising in the context of WP rather than BP. It suggests that your server is having a hard time either accepting the uploaded images, or moving them around in wp_handle_upload().

Any feedback on this?

Looks like no. Removing milestone pending more/any specific info that makes this look like a BP issue.
