Followup to Add xprofile field Vibility "Admin only" #5317
Hi – this is in reference to https://buddypress.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/5317. I have a valid case requiring this feature – details on the case below. Can anyone tell me the status on this -whether it is a current or future feature, or if there is an alternative plugin I can use? Based on this conversation, the idea for this feature seems doa.
My client maintains a website. The site has a moderate sized community. Each member’s profile contains a number of BP xprofile fields. The client wants to have several additional xprofile fields that are viewable only to the admin, and not the user. The purpose of these additional, admin-only fields, is to make it easier for the admin to essentially ‘tag’ users as having a certain status (warning flag for inappropriate behavior, new member, etc. etc.) or being a member of certain interest groups (i.e. members who have pets, members who like hiking) without letting the user know that the admin/moderator has tagged them or even that there is tagging. The reason for doing it with BP xprofile fields, is that it provides such a simple, handy, and clean method for creating additional field in the WP context that it makes it easy for the non-technical admin to go in and edit member data.
Thanks in advance,
