Fixing Aspect Ratio Issue with BuddyPress Avatar


November 7, 2012 | By: Adrian

A recent issue we had was with the interface to edit an avatar profile image in BuddyPress. It was locking in an aspect ratio and that was limiting the users.

Here’s a solution to get rid of that aspect ratio lock.

Note: This is not the best solution as your modifying the core (something we don’t do) but BuddyPress leaves us no option.

Browse to: /wp-content/plugins/buddypress/bp-core/bp-core-cssjs.php

Go to line 62 and comment out the aspectRatio property:

onChange: showPreview,
onSelect: showPreview,
onSelect: updateCoords,
// aspectRatio: <?php echo $aspect_ratio ?>, */
setSelect: [ 0, 0, <?php echo $full_width?>, <?php echo $full_height?> ]
