How to display full buddypress avatars in bbpress instead of pulling thumb size? (3 posts)

    There's a lot of people integrating bbPress and BuddyPress. But I couldn't figure out how to let bbPress 2.x forums pull the BuddyPress fully sized avatar (in my setup: 150px) rather than the thumbnail sized avatar (in my setup: 50px).

    bbPress out of the box will size its avatars at 80px, which will make any default avatar ugly, blurry and pixelated since it will be using a smaller image stretched at 80px.

    Even changing the default bbPress avatar size for example with:

    bbp_reply_author_link( array( 'sep' => '', 'size' => '150' ) );

    won't solve the issue because the avatar image being pulled shall remain the thumb sized Buddypress one. In my case a 50px image will be stretched to 150px.

    If there is a way to filter bbPress in a way that it pulls the BP full size avatar rather than the thumbnail version of it?

    if you look at bbpress forums there is a lot more people having this issue, but so far no solution has been proposed, hope to be more lucky here...

    thank you

    I have a similar problem and would love help!! My user photo is stretched the width of my page, so it's unrecognizable. I upgraded from the stand alone bbPress to the plugin version in wordpress 3.4.1. My website is http://angusrowboats.com/blog/forums/forum/support/

    Another problem is that I can't get the plugins to upload user photos to work. Tried user photo and user avatar.

    Please help techie geniuses.
