I tried using the following but it's not working:

{% if entry.author.photoUrl|length %}
<img src="{{ entry.author.photoUrl(84) }}" alt="" />
{% else %}
no photo
{% endif %}

Also, another question of mine is... when i upload a user photo on the profile tab, am I suppose to see the photo's thumbnail? All I see is the upload box with the button but the file seemed to have uploaded successfully to /craft/storage/userphotos

  • Forgot to mention that I get "no photo" as a result.

Yes, you should see the photo thumbnail in the list of users after you upload the photo. Your exact code works for me, so I think something has gone wrong with the photo upload.

  • Well, both original and 100 folders contain the uploaded image... so how is there something wrong with the photo upload? How can I diagnose the problem here?

I realized the image that I was trying to upload had issues. So, my code was working. Image upload had issues and there were no errors to tell you that. But we're good now. Thanks
