Great plugin. Works perfectly. Very happy with the plugin and the time it saved me!

Because of the complexity of my site, I knew making a theme for this would be necessary. Thankfully the cover feature this provided was exactly what I needed. I’d like to use the avatar feature as well. Unfortunately, when uploading avatars, there are black bars that appear on the right and bottom of images. It would also be nice to allow the cropping like you can do with BuddyPress by default, or some form of scaling like the cover photos. For now, I just used the theme’s CSS to cancel out the plugin’s avatars, but if this feature would be implemented in the future, I’d definitely love to use it. Overall, great work. You saved me a lot of time.

It will screw up your BuddyPress profile page horribly. See it for yourself here. It not only inserted the profile pictures wrong, but also created a grey area that totally covered up all the profile management links, plus two misplaced buttons which are not functional at all. It almost gave me a heart attack after seeing its effect! Luckily I was able to undo them by disable and delete this piece of junk. Be warned!
