Re: wp and bp profile syncing–works only sporadically
@JJJ, you are basically saying that it’s up to the end users/members to keep their data synchronized? And if it’s not, it’s their problem? It’s just not a very user-friendly approach.
Also, I’m very much in favor of keeping all options open for all use cases, but Buddypress does not offer any built-in firstname/lastname option. Simple built-in syncing with wp_usermeta upon activation like in my custom function would solve that problem and wouldn’t hurt anybody.
Maybe Andy refuses to include it in the core just to spite me, which would be at least somewhat understandable…
