Are you looking for a way to display the avatar of the logged in user? While there’s probably a plugin for this, we have created a quick code snippet that you can use to display logged in users avatar in BuddyPress. You can customize the height, width, and class of the user avatar.


All you have to do is add this code to your theme’s single.php file:

echo bp_core_fetch_avatar( array(
  'item_id' => bp_loggedin_user_id(),
  'width' => 50,
  'height' => 50,
  'class' => 'avatar',
