BuddyPress Default Group Avatar

Description

This plugin is tested only with BP 1.6.2 and WordPress 3.5, and is not meant to be backwards compatible! If you’re running an older version of WordPress, use Vernon’s original plugin BuddyPress Group Default Avatar

Allows specifying the URL of an image to use as the BuddyPress default group avatar. This makes it easy to distinguish groups from members who are using the mystery man default user avatar.

It works in all situations (activity stream, groups, forums, directory, etc). Upload your image to somewhere within your theme and drop the full URL in the options screen.

If you had BuddyPress Group Default Avatar previously installed, this plugin will use the avatar set in that plugin. Otherwise it’s bundled with a default avatar for groups (see screenshots).

Not tested on multisite/network install yet (please confirm if it’s working!).

Screenshots

  • Settings show the URL input and a preview of your image.

Installation

  1. Upload bp-default-group-avatar to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory.
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress.
  3. Go to BP Group Avatar under the BuddyPress menu and set your image URL.

FAQ

Does the plugin allow me to upload images directly?
