Description (last modified by DJPaul)

When uploading a user avatar, BuddyPress creates /uploads/buddypress/ which BuddyPress doesn't use.

Tested on multisite, network-activated.

This happens on a single install too.

Cover images are uploaded there.

So avatars: /uploads/avatars/[ID]
Cover images: /uploads/buddypress/members/[ID]/cover-image

IMO it's better to have avatars moved to /uploads/buddypress/members/[ID]/avatar.

@DJPaul What do you think?

IMO it's better to have avatars moved to /uploads/buddypress/members/[ID]/avatar.

Moving the avatars directory would be problematic for existing installations. You'd either need to check both the old and new location for files or bulk move everything.

@DJPaul It's not a bug, it's used by the cover image feature :)

And i agree with @slaFFik avatars should ideally follow the same folder organization
See in the "The new BP_Attachment_Cover_Image class & the Cover Image UI" section 2nd paragraph :)

I haven't touched the avatar folder organization to avoid an upgrade routine in 2.4.
