#5580 closed defect (bug) (fixed)

Redirects to wrong user's profile page after successful avatar crop

Reported by: mugwumpman's profile mugwumpman Owned by: djpaul's profile djpaul
Milestone: 2.1 Priority: normal
Severity: minor Version: 2.0
Component: Media Keywords: good-first-bug needs-patch


In Buddypress 1.9 you implemented a bit of code that redirects a user to their profile page after a successful avatar crop. It's a great idea, but very annoying if you are an admin editing a different user's avatar. Instead of getting redirected to their profile after the avatar crop, you get redirected to your own profile every time. Can this code be changed so it's relative to the avatar that's just been cropped?

This is a follow-up to #5150. Many thanks, Matt

In 8322:

xProfile: fix redirect when an admin uploads an avatar to another user's profile.

When cropping a new avatar, a redirect always took you to the logged-in user's profile.
This was fine in most situations, as a user can only update their own profile.
However, site admins are able to edit other users' profiles, so we need to redirect to the displayed user's profile.
