    I have some users signing up and they are not immediately placing a profile photo. I have uploaded the Buddypress Profile Completion plugin, so hopefully that will address that issue going forward.

    But unfortunately, there are profiles that were created before I uploaded the plugin and that horrible default grey and white ‘mystery man’ photo appears. I have been searching for a plugin that would allow me to upload a placeholder until users upload their own photo, but have not found one.

    Do you have any plugin recommendations, suggestions or “Additional CSS” code I can input that allows me to add a placeholder image that is more appealing?

    Any guidance would be most appreciated. 🙂

    Hi @mignon,

    Unfortunately, there is no plugin to my knowledge that I can recommend for that. To change the default avatar you will need to add custom code to your website.

    Here is the BuddyPress documentation page with everything to know about changing avatars :

    Customizing BuddyPress Avatars

    Please refer to the “How to Change the Default BuddyPress Avatar” section in that page.

    Hope this helps 🙂

    Best regards,
