 Hi guys,

 Mike here from WishList Products. We have a customer that filed a support
 request saying that WishList Member cannot protect the BP member's profile
 page (ex. `sitename.com/members/membername`)

 I investigated the issue and found out though BP successfully loads the
 page, `is_404()` actually returns true.

 Our plugin already makes use of `template_redirect` as recommended in
 #6230 but this doesn't seem to work with the member's profile page. The
 issue apparently is WP returns a 404 because `/members/membername` does
 not exist thus the `is_404()` thing.

 This prevents plugins that deal with the parent page from functioning
 properly such as WishList Member.

 I wonder if BP should just load the content of the parent page and just
 modify its content? Not sure what trouble this would entail (hopefully not
