Can't upload an Avatar - getting a "Can't find editor" error

Reported by: harleycoder's profile Harleycoder Owned by:
Milestone: Awaiting Contributions Priority: normal
Severity: minor Version: 1.8.1
Component: Media Keywords:


It is indicating that the editor is not found - I assume it means ImageMagick. My rtMedia also doesn't see it; but I verified that it is installed on my server.

Steps: I went to my profile, clicked change avatar, proceeded to upload a new one, and got the editor not found error message. is where I have BP installed.

Here's a paste from rtMedia's support (which I know is a different plugin but I wonder if this avatar problem and the lack of Magick are related)

PHP 5.3.26
MYSQL 5.5.32
WordPress 3.6
BuddyPress 1.8.1
rtMedia 3.1
OS Linux
Imagick Not Installed
GD bundled (2.1.0 compatible)
[php.ini] post_max_size 20M
[php.ini] upload_max_filesize 20M
[php.ini] memory_limit 200M

  • Component changed from Core to Avatars
  • Milestone changed from Awaiting Review to Future Release
  • Severity changed from major to minor

We should check what happens if ImageMagick is not available on the server, and if this is the cause of the issue, we should handle the error gracefully (or figure out what part of WordPress' API we should be using to do this for us).
