    Btw: there’s one small mistake:
    if you want to use your own avatars instead of the mistery man, you have to use apostrophe before and after the url:

    define ( ‘BP_AVATAR_DEFAULT’, ‘http://example.com/default-avatar.jpg ‘);
    define ( ‘BP_AVATAR_DEFAULT_THUMB’, ‘http://example.com/default-avatar-thumb.jpg ‘);

    Hi Sarah, I am trying to make all my Avatars circular, so I copied these codes:
    img.avatar {
    -webkit-border-radius: 50%;
    -moz-border-radius: 50%;
    -ms-border-radius: 50%;
    -o-border-radius: 50%;
    border-radius: 50%;
    -webkit-box-shadow: 0 1px 0 #fff;
    -moz-box-shadow: 0 1px 0 #fff;
    box-shadow: 0 1px 0 #fff;
    }

    And I put them in my theme style css, but nothing has changed. Can you please help and point me the right direction?

    Thanks,

    Dsvay

    @Dara Pich Svay – Are you using the default theme? If not, your selectors might be different.

    I am using a dynamix theme. Where can I paste the code?

    Thanks,

    @Dara Pich Svay – Put it in your child theme. You’ll have to figure out the correct selectors to override what your theme does. Please post in the support forums if you problems with it.

    Sarah, by ‘default theme’ do you mean twenty-twelve? ’cause BP doesn’t really have a default theme anymore.

    hello Sarah, thank you for this post. unfortunately i have not been successful at adding a custom avatar to our BP site. we are using BP version 1.9.1. i added

    define ( ‘BP_AVATAR_DEFAULT’, ‘http://www.penintime.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/03/avatar-1.png’ );

    to the bp-custom.php file and uploaded to /wp-content/plugins/ folder. can you please tell me why this is not working?

    thanks so much.

    In case anyone is looking for a solution to creating a whole set of custom avatars for Buddypress users to choose from I just posted directions on how to do this here: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/creating-specific-custom-avatars-with-gravity-forms?replies=1#post-5586200

    It uses a paid Gravity Forms plugin – but it works (and I’ve been trying to do this for years so I want to share with everyone). Thanks.
