Bump. I agree it should at the least make its way onto a Roadmap. If I’m understanding this correctly, there is no unified user-management system in the code base itself. I know I’m significantly hacking a number of Buddypress features to work around this issue in two of my current projects, and it seems like this missing functionality is a barrier to BuddyPress’s evolution.
Thanks 4ella. I think this is a common sense extension of BuddyPress, so I’m looking at sponsoring a plugin for the community. If I do, any advice on how let the community know in addition to putting it on WordPress?
