We are trying to go in & edit other users with the wp-admin to update their profile info as part of a migration, however, the extra fields we added using the pro version of this plugin, does not allow me to upload images or documents on behalf of that user. I can save information in text areas, but not upload files. Any thoughts why that is happening?

Shouldn't be happen.
Can you upload files in to your media library?
Check – Registration forms image/file upload limits
– Check allowed files extensions (if any)
– Finally check your server's error log if it says anything?August 13, 2013 at 8:46 am #6916
The only thing I forgot to mention is that it's locally activated on the main site of a multisite, not network enabled, since I only need it from one site. And these are applied to new roles we have added to WP, not the default subscriber, author, editor…etc, roles. All roles have the same settings as subscriber, but they are named based on the websites needs.
Everything is working when editing my own user profile details, it doesn't work once I try edit someone else's as an administrator. The media library is working & the upload limits are set. We have nothing related to this error in error logs, I don't even get an error in the dashboard when I try to upload a file for another user by editing that user profile and trying to upload using either file upload or image upload. It just takes me to to the top of the page again. Have you tried testing this & not had the same error?August 14, 2013 at 7:01 am #6939
Wanted to check on an update, any news?August 21, 2013 at 9:53 pm #7273

Unfortunately, its not possible with this. You may consider to use this plugin – http://wordpress.org/plugins/user-switching/August 24, 2013 at 8:11 am #7415
Thanks for the suggestion and we have tried that, but it doesn't fit our needs.
In looking closer at the issue, we have a problem in the WordPress admin adding images to others profiles. In looking at my logs, and the browser console I find that the following is returned when editing another users profile:
“Uncaught ReferenceError: WPUF_Uploader is not defined”
This does not occur when editing your own profile. The difference is that when editing your own profile the file used is wp-admin/profile.php when edititing others profiles it is a direct call to wp-admin/user-edit.php. For some reason the function does not load when editing other users, but it does load when editing your own profile in the admin (or when editing your profile on the front end).
I have looked at the code but cannot find what I'd need to change to make this work. Can you look at this and see what the problem is and help us out with a patch?
