#4876 closed enhancement (maybelater)

XProfile: Fields viewable by all but editable only by admins

BP 1.7 adds fields that can be edited by the user and viewed only by admins, but it'd also be great to have the opposite: Fields that are editable only by admins but can be viewed by anyone (or anyone who’s logged in).

The specific use case is a corporate directory - I want to be able to add and display the user's hire date, birth date, and branch that they work at, but I don't want anyone getting cheeky and changing any of those. I don't see this being a narrow enough use case to be relegated to plugin status, so it'd be super cool to see it bundled into a future release!

I'll try making a plugin in the meantime, but coding isn't my strong suit :P I can post what I did if I have success.

We're closing this ticket because it has not received any contribution or comments for at least two years. We have decided that it is better to close tickets that are good ideas, which have not gotten (or are unlikely to get) contributions, rather than keep things open indefinitely. This will help us share a more realistic roadmap for BuddyPress with you.

Everyone very much appreciates the time and effort that you spent sharing your idea with us. On behalf of the entire BuddyPress team, thank you.

If you feel strongly that this enhancement should still be added to BuddyPress, and you are able to contribute effort towards it, we encourage you to re-open the ticket, or start a discussion about it in our Slack channel. Please consider that time has proven that good ideas without contributions do not get built.
