Local Avatar

The Buddypress theme I’m using only allows profile images through Gravatar.com. I would like to make local avatars possible for profile pictures. How can I do this?

The url is http://activelifelinx.com.

    The theme I’m using seems to have disabled this feature.

    I think it’s this: <?php if ( !(int)bp_get_option( ‘bp-disable-avatar-uploads’ ) ) : ?>

    I’m not sure if I can just delete this code to re-enable avatars.

    What is your PHP sandbox of choice?

    I’ve had a difficult time configuring Dreamweaver to work in a dynamic environment.

    I very much like WAMP but I’ve not spent much time with it.

    The developer was of very little help. I opted for the Network theme in WPMU’s theme section.

    The client loves it and it suits my needs much better.

    Thanks for your post and sorry for the delay in response as I was away for my wedding. Apologies for any issues due to the delay.

    I have always used WAMP whenever I needed and found it easy to use. Generally, I use a lab site on my own VPS as that works faster than my local install :smiley:



Thank NAME, for their help.

Let NAME know exactly why they deserved these points.

Gift a custom amount of points.
