group avatar crop issue

I'm pretty sure this worked before I installed the avatar plugin. After reading how it is not to be used with buddypress, I went and removed all the components. I've also since upgraded to bp 1.1.2. I deleted the directory and installed new.

I see no cropping tool whatsoever in buddypress on the group page and have tried both IE and Firefox.

Any suggestions?

I don't think it is a permissions thing since the image gets uploaded fine and displays, it's just that it only displays the top corner.

I removed the edit to .htaccess, I don't have any cache plugins enabled. I removed the avatar.php and PNG files, I'm uploading an image that is 488 by 488 pixels as shown in the attachment.

Thanks for any help you can offer.

    hi raymondmannion

    did you follow the upgrade instruction on buddypress forum?
    it seems the site had bp_is_blog_page() function error where this is supposed to work in bp 1.1+

    this problem happed when some upgrade error or missing update
    on bp might want to recheck or update the buddypress

    in my experience, for a zero problem upgrade, it is best follow step like this:

    *before upgrade buddypress

    1. remove widgets and deactivate all plugins including buddypress
    2. delete wp-content/plugins/buddypress
    3. refresh or clear cache of the site
    4. upload new buddypress plugins to wp-content/plugins
    5. !important - delete wp-content/bp-themes if you are upgrading from older structure to new bp 1.1+ structure.
    6. reactivate all plugin - buddypress first.
    7. visit the site.

    Thanks for the message. The site is actually

    I have been using a non-buddypress theme quite a bit because the home page looks a lot nicer than the buddy-fun theme for the moment and my client only cares about the look at the moment and less about the functionality.

    I'm going to follow the instructions by richie_ks and try to deactivate and reinstall. I'll post again if I need help.

    Thanks again for the excellent support.

    Hi again,
    I'm having an issue with the crop tool not working. I think this all began when I tried to implement the avatar plugin which I subsequently removed.

    I'm currently flipping back and forth between the BuddyFun theme and the Buddy Magazine theme but both have the issue.

    I get this message in my error console:
    Error: jQuery("#avatar-to-crop").Jcrop is not a function
    Source File:
    Line: 178

    How would I troubleshoot this? Below is some of the page source.
    Thanks for any suggestions you can provide.

    <script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>
    <script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>
    <script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>
    <script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>
    <script type="text/javascript" > jQuery.noConflict();</script>
    <script type='text/javascript' src=''></script>

    further down, I see:

    <script type='text/javascript' src=''></script>
    <script type='text/javascript' src=''></script>
    <script type='text/javascript' src=''></script>

    It seems like jquery is there and so is jcrop. Any ideas how I would troubleshoot this? Just disabling plugins might isolate the issue, but I still need my plugins? Any useful articles out there on managing javascript?

    Disabling the plugins resolved the issue. Fortunately, the conflicting plugin wasn't as mandatory as I thought. It was the Wordpress Google Calendar plugin. I thought I might have to learn javascript to correct the issue, but for now, I'm going to simply leave the plugin out of the equation.

    I guess it's pretty standard troubleshooting - disable all plugins and reactivate one at a time.

    Thanks @andrew
