Do you want to allow your users to upload their profile pic while registering for your BuddyPress based social network? If yes, BudyPress Signup Avatar is the plugin you will need.
If you remember, Users were able to upload avatar after completing signup in BuddyPress 1.2 or before, but it was dropped in BuddyPress 1.5. I got many requests in past to bring this functionality back as a plugin. Finally, I managed some time and here we have the plugin today available for you
Avatar upload form:-
And here is the screenshot of the final step.
To be honest, It was not much work. Almost everything was present there in the BuddyPress core. I just had to do some small manipulations.
Note:- I have tested it with BuddyPress 1.8.1 but it should work with BuddyPress 1.5 and above without any issue.
If the avatar upload form is not shown after signup complete step, please make sure your registration/register.php as the following action
<?php do_action( 'bp_after_registration_confirmed' );?>
Please do let me know in comments if you are going to use this plugin or you need any help.
