Edit/Save selected user's Profile ( instead of currently logged in user)

I need a user management page for the administrator whereby the admin can edit/update Profiles from other users(by selecting their username).

How can I select a different users Profile? So far I found only the editing of current user :(

Well you could create your own form and fill it in from the codebehind by following below. Lets say we want to update the firstname and last name in the profile.

Web form 
    <td>First Name</td>
    <td><asp:TextBox runat="server" ID="firstname" /></td>
    <td>Last Name</td>
    <td><asp:TextBox runat="server" ID="lastname" /></td>
    <td colspan="2"><asp:Button runat="server" id="sumbit_btn" Text="Submit changes" OnClick="submit_btn_click" /></td>

Code Behind 

protected void Page_Load(object o,EventArgs e)
      string user = "someusername";
      ProfileCommon pObj = new ProfileCommon().GetProfile(user);
      if(pObj != null)
          firstname.Text = pObj.FirstName;
          lastname.Text = pObj.LastName;

//Button click event
protected void submit_btn_click(object o,EventArgs e)
   string user = "someusername";
   //init our Profile Object
   ProfileCommon pObj = new ProfileCommon().GetProfile(user);
   //set the new variables
   pObj.FirstName = firstname.Text;
   pObj.LastName = lastname.Text;
   //save the profile

 Good Luck

 Allright found the mistake

Line 54 -         ProfileCommon userProfile = Profile.GetProfile(previousUsername.Text.ToString());
I was using the temporary value to save the profile,i changed that and now it works

MOD: Edit User's Profile
This MOD replaces the EDIT USERS PROFILE prior functionality and serves two purposes: 1. To separate the actual Registration Page from the Edit User page so that end users may not change their username. Prior to the modifications, the USERS_EDITPROFILE page would inherit the RegisterForm controls which allowed editing and changing of the UserName. 2. Physically separates the EDIT and REGISTER functions such that you may embed additional controls in one or the either and not effect the other. Example: You want to add a “Register for Sub-Forum” control but not have it appear during ...
