Support » Networking WordPress » Userphoto plugin with multisite installation

  • I currently have a WordPress installation with around 30 blogs using the Sitewide Tags plugin to roll all blogs into one master list. This works just fine, except that I must manually copy the small user photos generated by the Userphoto plugin from each individual blog into the upload folder of the master blog. Is there a way to modify the Userphoto plugin to make this unnecessary?

    Thanks for any help you can offer.

    Possibly only if it wrote to custom meta which your theme then ported in…

    Yep, that’s the plugin I’m using. I don’t see any ability to write custom meta, though… is there maybe a different plugin that does something similar?

    Bottom line is that I need something that allows mugshots to be changed once per user and have it show across all blogs.

    try a different avatar plugin?

    Because anytime I’ve used a separate or custom avatar, it just gets picked up.

    None of my userphotos references in the user_meta was successfully exported from a stand alone blog to a multisite install. I’m busy writing mapping scripts to see if i can get the userphotos to show up again after i have move the userphoto dir into the files dir of the said blog. Is there a way to keep the images in tact during export/import

    userphotos is an avatars plugin though, which is why the export didn’t grab them. it’s not post content.

    and avatars would be global, not specific to one of the sites. likely you put the userphotos folder in the wrong spot when used on a network.



    I changed the plugin code and got it to work with wordpress multisite installation. It still uses switch_to_blog() which isn’t advised as it takes up a lot of resources and time but for now this is what I have.
