Support » Plugin: BuddyPress First Letter Avatar » Not Working With Buddypress Update

  • Its working in some places but overriding buddypress in others.
    Example: Activity wall is fine, widgets are not.

    FYI I am using Thrive Theme which has featured member etc…

  • I can confirm this. BuddyPress First Letter Avatar overrides all the BP avatars on Twenty Sixteen theme after the latest BP update. (Everything was OK before the update).

    Yep, unfortunately I have a same problem :((
    Also cropping doesn’t work properly… so, maybe it’s more to do with latest buddypress update 🙁

    Dear @danielagw
    please, any chance this will be fixed?

    Dear @valery-kondakoff / @wslover317
    did you find the fix please?

    Thank you :))

    I haven’t tried to fix, was hoping the developer would come through

    Thanks a lot @wslover317

    Doesn’t look like @danielagw is still working on it 🙁

    Any alternative to BuddyPress First Letter Avatar? What do you recommend?

    I’ve got this issue as well, but I’m too impatient to wait for the developer to come up with a solution, so I went digging.

    1. Buddypress 2.9.0 does a deep overhaul of the bp-core-avatars.php
    2. BuddyPress First Letter Avatar seems to be affected by the code changes

    After a bit of experimentation, I was able to restore the normal functionality to my site by commenting out:

    add_filter('get_avatar', array($this, 'set_comment_avatar'), $this->filter_priority, 6); on line 139 of the buddypress-first-letter-avatar.php file

    This line is commented as:

    // this will only be used for anonymous WordPress comments (from non-users

    My site does not allow anonymous comments, so there are no ill effects that I can see. YMMV

    Hi, I have the same issue with my site. I’m running bbp 2.9.0, wp 4.8.1 too.

    The workaround provided by @careb fixed it for now.

    @dev49net / @danielagw would be great to have this fixed upstream!


    You are a STAR @careb
    Thanks a lot :))

    Thank you very much @careb
