        I can see that the avatars are displaying as 100x100 in the threads. By default they display as 64x64. So it looks like you don't have any issues. You have this custom CSS in css_additional:

        Code:
        .b-avatar--m > img {
            max-height: 275px!important;
            max-width: 200px !important;
            height: auto!important;
            width: auto!important;
        }
        This causes the avatars to display in its full/actual size if they are not larger than 200x275. And the actual avatar size is 100x100.

          The issue is that it's shrinking the avatars. For example, my avatar on the site is this.



          It's 200x275 so it should display at 200x275, but it's being shrunk to 73x100



          Avatars within a thread were being displayed at their maximum sizes (max of 200 W) before the update. Then as soon as the update was completed, the avatars were suddenly being displayed with a max width of 100.

          -edit-

          http://i.imgur.com/UALwQlT.jpg

          Here is a screenshot from June that showed how large displayed avatars were before the update. As you can see, they're much larger than 100x100.

            Then it's not a CSS problem. Check the avatar maximum width and height settings for each of the usergroup in AdminCP.

              They're all set to 200x275 or larger.

                I checked and I think they made some changes to the avatar URLs in 5.2.3. Previously the thread avatars were taken from ./core/customavatars/avatarXXX_XXX.XXX (when stored in fileystem), In 5.2.3, the avatars are now taken from ./core/customavatars/thumbs/avatarXXX_XXX.XXX (notice the /thumbs directory) where the avatars are smaller.

                In case if avatars are stored in the database, the previous avatar URL in the thread page was ./core/image.php?userid=XXX&dateline=XXXXXX, now it's ./core/image.php?userid=XXX&thumb=1&dateline=XXXXX (notice the thumb=1 parameter).

                That change might make sense, but they should have also fixed the harcoded avatar sizes in the PHP code along with that change and made them configurable.

                  Is there a way to change it back?

                  I checked the "Avatar" tab in the admin CP and it seems like it says avatars are being stored in ./customavatars

                  It doesn't say ./customavatars/thumbs

                    Yeah it only says the main directory where to store the avatars but automatically created smaller versions of the avatars are stored in the /customavatars/thumbs subdirectory. Current workaround is to copy all the avatar image files in the /customavatars directory to the /thumbs directory (backup the /thumbs directory first!) and overwrite the existing ones. You have to do it everytime there's a new avatar created, though.

                    That is very, very frustrating. I sincerely hope the vBulletin devs intend to fix this. And fix it quickly.

                  Decided to create a JIRA for the whole avatar debacle. With any hope, it will be fixed.

                    You may want to link the page 2 of this thread in the JIRA for their reference.

                  They're showing 200 wide on my end. Looks just like the screenshot.

                    Yes. I did as Glenn suggested above and copied all of the normal avatar files into the thumbs folder. It fixed the ones currently in use, but my understanding is that I'll have to do the same thing every time a new avatar is uploaded.

                      This is also a deal breaker for me as I also use big avatars in my forum. I won't upgrade until this is fixed either by vBulletin officially or by me if I find a workaround.

                        They closed mine and linked to this one.

                        Seems I voted for this one some time ago. It's disheartening to see that this complaint was made in 2013 and still hasn't been fixed, however. Especially considering it used to be simple enough to be fixed by a few lines of CSS...

                        My members aren't very happy with this. User avatars are how they identify themselves and each other. It's been a pretty big part of the community for over a decade, far before we moved to vBulletin. So it's got me in a real bind. I spent about an hour last night combing through source files, trying to find the bit of code that points avatar display to the thumbnails instead of the original file, and so far have been unsuccessful. I will definitely let you know if I find it, however.

                        On an unrelated note, I just realized you're the same person I recently purchased a few mods from. I got your message on twitter about joining your site and asking about one of the issues I was having with the profile preview mod, but completely forgot. Lots of distractions with a kid just starting school. lol. I'll get around to that eventually, as well. x.x
