[Resolved] How to change size of avatar or make lightbox work on avatar

    Avatar standard image size is very small in BuddyPress, I am wondering why there is no option for changing this size in the BuddyPress control panel?

    How do I change the size of avatars?

    Is it possible to make lightbox plugins work on, not only galleries, but avatars as well?

    Regards

    Hi Carsten,
    BuddyPress uses 50px for thumb and 150px for the normal by default. You can change that easily by definign a few constants.
    Please see the example here.

    Hope that helps.

    Hi Brajesh, thank you very much, I am not sure how this pastebin.com is working. I have created an account an pasted in the code, but how do I address the paste to you?

    I have tried pasting in the code to both the bb-custom.php and the theme functions.php. No change to a new uploaded avatar.

    When I enter the code snippet in the functions.php file, the activity information normally under the cover image, now moves on top of the cover image. My theme is Twenty Seventeen.

    Regards
    Carsten

    Hi Carsten,
    When you post on the pastebin(and submit) you can copy the url of the page and share.

    Thank you

    Hi Carsten,
    Thank you.

    You have done it correctly.

    Uploading new avatar should take this size. If it does not work, please point me to the page section. Most probably the theme page/code is using fixed width while fetching avatar.

    Regards

    Which page section are you referring to?

    I am using the Twenty Seventeen theme, I don’t know if this theme is using is using fixed width.’
