Simple Local Avatars
Kills Admin in WordPress 3.8 (3 posts)

    Not sure why, but when I upgraded to WordPress 3.8 Simple Local Avatars killed the site.

    If I was logged out of the site, the site loaded fine. As soon as I logged in, I'd get a white screen on the frontend and backend and Chrome would say that there was no data returned.

    I renamed the plugin via FTP (to disable it) and the site loaded just fine.

    Not sure what's going on, but are there any known issues?

    We've been able to find the issue.

    • Only happens with existing avatars. Doesn't happen if you add new avatars.
    • Errors out on line 126 : $saved = $editor->save( $dest_file );

    We think the issue is that it doesn't have all the sizes it thinks it needs. In our testing it was trying to pull a 26x26 sized avatar and failing. However we weren't using or asking for a 26x26 avatar. Not sure where 26 was coming from.

    I found out where the 26 size was coming from, it's in the admin bar; upper right corner when logged in. This is why it fails sitewide when logged in.
