 @Plucker The only way to get:
 > Upload Failed! Error was: The uploaded file could not be moved to wp-

 is that the uploads base dir does not contain the WordPress Absolute Path.
 So a possible reason for this to happen is a plugin or a theme or a custom
 code in bp-custom.php or in a mu-plugin folder is playing with the
 WordPress uploads dir.

 I've quickly built a testing tool, i understood your site were in
 development, so could you test it?


 function issue_6708() {
         global $wp_filter;

         add_filter( 'bp_displayed_user_id', '__return_true' );
         add_filter( 'upload_dir', 'xprofile_avatar_upload_dir', 10, 0 );

         $uploads = wp_upload_dir();

         echo 'if there are other filters than xprofile_avatar_upload_dir,
 you should check these.<br/>';
         foreach( $wp_filter['upload_dir'] as $priority ) {
                 var_dump( array_keys( $priority ) );

         remove_filter( 'upload_dir', 'xprofile_avatar_upload_dir', 10, 0
         remove_filter( 'bp_displayed_user_id', '__return_true' );

         echo 'Following line should be true, the Absolute path must be in
 the upload basedir, and must start with it<br/>';
         var_dump( 0 === strpos( $uploads['basedir'], ABSPATH ) );

         echo '<br/>The uploads dir data is:<br/>';
         var_dump( $uploads );

         echo '<br/>Abspath is: ' . ABSPATH;
 add_action( 'bp_actions', 'issue_6708' );


 You should get something like this :
