Want to distinguish groups from members who are using the mystery man default avatar? The BuddyPress Group Default Avatar plugin makes it easy to upload your own custom avatar. Simply upload your image via FTP or using the WordPress media library and then paste the full URL in the plugin’s options screen.
You’ll see a preview of the image you uploaded. Your new default group avatar will scale from full to thumb as per your theme settings and will be shown on your BuddyPress pages where groups have not yet uploaded an avatar. This plugin is a must-have for any niche community. BuddyPress Group Default Avatar is available for free from the WordPress plugin repository.
