[resolved] Avatar link issue (7 posts)

    I am not sure if this is an issue with the plugin or something I have changed on my site. When I click the change avatar link in buddy menu I go to a page not found error. Looking at the actual change avatar link it looks like the buddy menu one is not correct.

    buddy menu =/members/username/avatar/
    buddy press =/members/username/profile/change-avatar/

    Any ideas?

    hey there scott i just wanted to know if you found a resolution to this problem? I love this plugin, but unable to get three of the links to function
    1. Login/Logout
    2. Change Avatar
    3. Compose

    I wish there was a way to make a custom link that would go directly to the page.
    example: http://your site.com/members/[username]/profile/change-avatar
    When I try to change my avatar, it gives a "page not found" response. How can I direct the Change Avatar link to redirect correctly?
    Thanks for your time Community!
    Love, Peace and Hair Grease

    I did not find a resolution to this. Now that it has come back up and I am thinking about it, I am going to hit this hard and see if I can fix it up. I will let you know my results.

    Looks like the plugin has updated since I last looked. There some more options but it looks like also still some broken links, at least on my install.

    Here is the workaround I found. This is using the widget.

    Menu Item: custom_url
    Custom Menu URL: http://yoursite.com/wp-login.php?action=logout
    Page Title: Logout
    Shot to visitors: logged-in
    Menu Item: custom_url
    Custom Menu URL: http://yoursite.com/wp-login.php?action=login
    Page Title: Login
    Shot to visitors: logged-out
    Menu Item: custom_slug
    Custom Menu Slug: profile/change-avatar
    Page Title: Change Avatar
    Shot to visitors: logged-in
    Menu Item: custom_slug
    Custom Menu Slug: messages/compose
    Page Title: Compose Message
    Shot to visitors: logged-in

    Does that help?

    I'm very sorry for the delay updating the plugin. Have corrected the login/logout URLs.

    Thanks for being patient.

    Any update on getting the Change Avatar link to work?

    I'm on version 2.2.0 and it still doesn't work.

    yep, very useful, thank you ;) we can use custom menu slug in order to fix avatar issue in fact...

    NB: shortcode seems generate the right way, only widget's link is wrong
