Client has thrown me a complete noodlescratcher, and after poring over the plugin gallery and forums I haven't found a solution yet... help? Anybody?
I have an instance of WP installed on a server at client.com/business/agents -- it's a locked-down version of WP that allows registered access to information that they don't want shared otherwise on their main website. Easy enough.
But now they want to add a login box to the sidebar of the existing page at client.com/business, which obviously sits outside of the WP install. The site is built in PHP, but other than a coded text link there's no existing database connection between client.com/business and client.com/business/agents.
Question is, how can I add a login form to a page outside of WP, but on the same server, that can authenticate users and redirect them to the main WP page?
nevermind, I'm a moron.
Using the loginform code with the action pointing to the wp-login.php page works.
