#19539 closed defect (bug) (fixed)

get_avatar() returning wrong image size which inserts large image in admin bar

Reported by: andrewryno's profile andrewryno Owned by: nacin's profile nacin
Milestone: 3.4 Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 3.3
Component: Toolbar Keywords: has-patch commit

Just updated a site to 3.3 and noticed that when you open the "Howdy, {user}" admin bar menu, the image sometimes is larger than the 64px image requested by get_avatar() (/wp-includes/admin-bar.php line 174). It instead is showing a 156x156 image.

I don't know if this is a bug in get_avatar() or what. But get_avatar() DOES output the correct HTML with width and height set to 6 and the ?s=64 query string added to the URL. However, the reset for the admin bar (#wpadminbar *) sets width/height to auto, so those HTML attributes are ignored.

Wrote a patch to resize it using CSS, but I don't know if it's a bug in get_avatar() that might need to be addressed.

See also #BP3782. In the case of BuddyPress, we give users an easy way to serve up a local fallback (the ?d= parameter for the Gravatar call), and it's only in cases where the logged-in user falls back on this locally served avatar that the problem arises. I can confirm that 19539.diff will fix the problem.

Vote for 19539.diff. Already positioned with pixels, might as well expect it to be a certain size in the same selector and keep it together.

In [20657]:

Explicitly set the dimensions of the avatar in the toolbar's profile menu. Avoids issues where overridden avatars could result in images that don't fit. props andrewryno. fixes #19539.
