As an admin of a WordPress install I can access all user data from the backend under User/All User/Edit User.
But to access the BuddyPress Member Profile Data I need to switch the user to the user I want to edit and then go to the Frontend Member Profile to make my changes.
Use the "show_user_profile" hook to add this fields. and "edit_user_profile_update" hook to save the data with bp_update_user_meta but not as user meta data.
After more deeply thinking about this topic and doing some testing, I think this can cause conflicts in some cases.
An example of many others could be WooCommerce.
The Shipping Address fields are stored as user meta data.
I wrote a plugin to sync woocommerce user meta data with buddypress xprofile fields and make all woocommerce relevant user meta data available in your BuddyPress Profiles.
We could add a check if the field exists and only add it if not, I do not know if this could cause other conflicts.
Another idea could be to sync all user meta data with buddypress and created xprofile fields from user meta and vice versa.
In this case all the sync code in other plugins could be removed. But again, I don’t know if this is a good idea.
I think I need some thoughts from other developers before I start writing code.
