#5717 new defect (bug)

Default thumb avatar is not used when called via (any function that utilizes) bp_core_fetch_avatar()

Reported by: m-bp's profile M-BP Owned by:
Milestone: Awaiting Contributions Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 1.2
Component: Core Keywords: needs-patch


The default thumb avatar (myster-man-50.jpg) is not used when avatars are called via any function that utilizes bp_core_fetch_avatar().

This is presumably due to the fact that on l. 468 in bp-core-avatars.php only bp_core_avatar_default() is called. This can lead to layout distortions (for example in the members loop) as well as makes it impossible to overwrite the default thumb avatar (see a related issue that someone posted in the forums

Maybe $params could be checked and the function would just default to the thumb for the sake of consistency?

What do you think of this (from l. 466 onwards)?
I've made some tests and it seems to work but maybe it can be improved.

// No avatar was found, and we've been told not to use a gravatar.
	} else { 
                if ($params['type'] == 'full') {
                    	$gravatar = apply_filters( "bp_core_default_avatar_$object", bp_core_avatar_default( 'local' ), $params );
                else {
                    	$gravatar = apply_filters( "bp_core_default_avatar_thumb_$object", bp_core_avatar_default_thumb( 'local' ), $params );

Can you give some more details about how to reproduce the problem?

Sure, you will notice it everywhere where the default thumbnail is called (for me this is for example the case in the members-loop where type=thumb is requested). Else you will also always see this behaviour when using bp_core_fetch_avatar() or any other function that calls bp_core_fetch_avatar() without the type specified (you might have to turn off gravatars since this issue affects the default thumb that ships with bp, the myster-man).
When you then inspect the thumbnail <img> in your browser, you will notice that always the full version is loaded even if you specified type=thumb when calling bp_core_fetch_avatar().
