Ok, found one specific user to look into:
If you look in the User Admin Area for users, and look up that user, you will see he has an avatar. On the map, he does not have an avatar.
That seems like an issue between swap and Buddypress? Your map seems to properly display what Buddypress has as an avatar, so seems to be working properly. Not sure this part is your plugin.
If not, I’m happy to pay for development if required. It seems (novice opinion), since user accounts are created using Xenforo, Buddypress is not using the WP Avatar created by Xenforo registration? I’m just not sure.

Well I found another case where the avatar on the map, and the buddypress avatar are not the same, so that’s strange.

Hi there! What’s the best way to get additional support on this? Thanks!

Hi, checking in again. Do you know of other developers who are familiar with your code so I can get support? This isn’t a hobby for me, it’s a business, so I really need to be able to make consistent progress.September 22, 2016 at 8:46 am #54209
Hi, have the axact same issue. We use buddypress with buddyboss’s boss theme. It appears the empty avatars occur when the user-location is set before there’s an avatar uploaded. In my view the plugin isn’t syncing correctly with the user database. But I don’t know how to fix that.September 26, 2016 at 11:30 am #54254
I finally uninstalled the GEO MyWP software after spending well north of $100 on it. The main reason is lack of support. Really what I wanted was a member map. I went with a completely different solution I’m very happy with. Not as robust as GEO MyWp, but it works flawless for what I need.

This problem is not solved. It persists up until today in 2018. It occurs when accounts are created through certain plugins. For example accounts created through the formidable plugin have valid accouts/avatars, but the avatars do show up as “mystery-garavatars” in global maps (for example).
Once the account is createte, there is no way to get the avatar back. Deleting the image, recreate a new one doesn’t help. Any account created by formidable forever shows the mystery-avatar on GeoMyWP.
The html code in that case looks like this:
I have not found out why this link is created instead of the normal wordpress avatar link.
Is there anyone who solved this?August 5, 2018 at 6:23 am #57815
I found it. Thre’s a bug in the code.
if you replace
echo get_avatar( $user->ID, ”, ”, ”, $args );
echo get_avatar( $user->user_id, ”, ”, ”, $args );
all avatars show correctly.
The reason for this to show up as a bug is probably that with formidable and possibly other plugins “$user->ID <> $user->user_id”
$user->ID is the “entry ID”, but not the user ID.
The user ID is in $user->user_id
