Once I have the plugin activated I am unable to login through the WP-login page. I am running multisite and the admin user I created on install cannot login in through the WP login page once the SSO plugin is activated. I do not have this user as a user in IPB so maybe that is the issue? But, when I test on my regular IPB user I am unable to login with this user also.

Hi there,

When I try to activate the plugin I get a fatal error.

Plugin could not be activated because it triggered a fatal error.

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_PAAMAYIM_NEKUDOTAYIM in /home/barcs/public_html/wp-content/plugins/ipsconnect/wp-ips-connect.php on line 20

line.... 20? that makes no sense.... that is a simple conditional referencing a static property of an instantiated class...what PHP version are you running?

Fixing.

Only issue I have now is when registering on Wordpress the user is unable to log in on Wordpress or IPB although accounts are created on both side. If a user registers on IPB it all works perfectly.

Will the updated file you mention above fix this?

yes, though just by you mentioning it.

The issue is wordpress does not let the user enter a password, nor does it pass the randomly generated and emailed password to me there, which means I am generating another random pass the user never recieves for ipb to use, which means they cannot login with the password they recieved.

(the docs of WP actually bald-faced lie about this, stating the randomly generated pass is sent to the hook)

I think this really forces me to push user registration through IPB on the frontend registration, backend is handled properly, as I have password input.

I personslly would prefer registration through ipb as it has key capture and also easier to add extra fields if you need to. I was going to create my own login menu on wordpress to do this anyway but wanted to ensure the plugin is working correctly first.

File Updated:

  • Password Special characters issues, registration and password reset issues resolved.

Registration and password resets are now routed through IPB.

Demo up.

Additionally, just a quick note to the naysayers in my file's comments.

If you truly feel the price is too steep for the initial effort, updates, and support above and beyond, I highly encourage you to make your own.

Then price the work involved, if you complete it. You are purchasing a polished supported product that does receive continual updates to enhance the feature set and resolve issues discovered(bugs), and nobody is forcing you to renew in the first place.

Hi Marcher, I have a new issue with the new file. When trying to register from the register link on the Wordpress front end.

Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at /home/agnithos/public_html/barcs/wp-login.php:58) in /home/agnithos/public_html/barcs/wp-includes/pluggable.php on line 876

post-353778-0-54354700-1358254848_thumb.

Also I had a look at your demo and there is no where to register and test it. The register link is missing from the meta widget or have I missed something?

apologies, please upload from the download fresh again, fixed on both counts.

Few questions before buying :

  • what happens to users already registered on WP, can they login on both sides ?
  • what happens to users already registered on IP.Board, can they login on both sides ?
  • what happens to users already registered on both (WP and IPB) with :
    - same login but different passwords
    - same login and passwords
    - different login (a way to link ?)

Thanks !

  • After one Manual Login to WP, yes.
  • Yes.
  1. The IPB password wins, they will not be able to login with the WP password, logging in with the IPB password will update the WP password.
  2. Login to both as normal, credentials match.
  3. considering how to approach this, WP explicitly does not allow username change, However changing the IPB login name to match would resolve the conflict.

Is it possible to change the WP login screen or something to IPB?

If a user registers on the forums with their FB account and logs out, they can't log back in via the wordpress login page. Not sure if this can be fixed with options though, i'm just testing with your demo.
