I have successfuly installed User Photo plugin by weston ruter. When attempting to upload a photo from a file on my hard disk in the user management screen I receive the following message:
Upload error: The userphoto upload content directory does not exist and could not be created. Please ensure that you have write permissions for the /wp-content/uploads/ directory.
The readme instructions are a bit obtuse for me:
== Description ==
Allows a user to associate a profile photo with their account through their "Your Profile" page. Admins may
add a user profile photo by accessing the "Edit User" page. Uploaded images are resized to fit the dimensions specified
on the options page; a thumbnail image correspondingly is also generated.
User photos may be displayed within a post or a comment to
help identify the author. New template tags introduced are:
The first two should be placed in the posts loop near
the_author(), and the second two in the comments
comment_author() (or their respective equivalents). Furthermore,
userphoto_the_author_thumbnail() may be called anywhere (i.e. sidebar) if
$authordata is set.
The output of these template tags may be modified by passing four parameters:
$default_src, as in:
userphoto_the_author_photo($before, $after, $attributes, $default_src).
If the user photo exists (or
$default_src is supplied), then the text provided in the
$after parameters is respectively
prefixed and suffixed to the generated
img tag (a common pattern in WordPress). If attributes are provided in the
parameter, then they are returned as attributes of the generated
img element. For example:
userphoto_the_author_photo('', '', array(style => 'border:0'))
Uploaded images may be moderated by administrators via the "Edit User" page.
I don't know if I need to edit files in the theme editor or if I need to place the photo files on the server somewhere.
Any help would be appreciated.
