Any way to upload a user avatar/photo through admin panel?

Hello all.

Is it possible to add a user avatar/ photo from the wp-admin end?

I've tried the plugin "user photo", but it does not seem to work with bp. While the uploaded photo shows up in the WP user profile, it does not show up in the bp profile of the posts through bp. They still show gray instead of photo.

Thanks for any suggestions!

    Hiya Win,

    Welcome to WPMU DEV!

    We have an Avatar plugin but it's not compatible with BuddyPress as BP has it's own avatar system. I'm not aware of any that allow for you to upload avatars to BuddyPress in the admin at this point.

    Might be something to consider, but I think it'd have to be a BuddyPress-specific plugin.

    Anybody else have any ideas?
