It's not bad, but it could be a lot better
By , for WP 3.8

The plugin works, even when using public-facing profiles like Theme My Login. The ordering doesn't work with TML, unfortunately.

There is only basic validation, if there is even ANY validation. Selecting "Telephone" as the field still allows you to type if "fffffffffff", for example. It does not seem capable of limiting fields to N-characters or allow regex patterns, which would have been amazing.

It has a lot more potential, but it doesn't reach it. It is very basic, with most of the effort put into the ANNOYING animated ajax menus in the dashboard. It doesn't feel like WordPress, either.

I hate my productivity being limited by the screen sliding around. It's sickening, why is that even a thing.

Nicely implemented UI
By , for WP 3.4.2

This plugin has an impressive UI of its own. Where it falls down is how it integrates with WordPress's ordinary UI, and specifically the user profile page generated by WordPress. As @SamDecrock mentions, if you update the field for one user, it updates for all users, and the reason for this is because it tries to update the fields for the current user who is logged in making the change, as opposed to the user who is being edited. This can be seen on lines 897 and 1119 of plugin version 2.0.6. I have fixed this issue on my own site and can submit my code to the author if it is desired, but it's a simple fix.
