TidyConnect

Description

TidyConnect has been designed to reduce the need for different log in details for your members and admins. TidyConnect gives your members and admins more tools, not only for your website, but opens the door for more plug ins while keeping all your main administrative functionality in TidyHQ. To keep your website secure, if they do not have a WordPress account with your organisation, the plugin will allow them to log in but only create them as a user with basic WordPress access. Visitors not “Connected” to your organisation will be asked to connect when they log in giving you more opportunities to gain new members!

TidyConnect is Open-Source and available on GitHub. If you have any suggestions, ideas or would like to contribute to TidyConnect, email tidyconnect@iinet.net.au

For more information, head to TidyConnect -> Help in your WordPress admin menu.

  • Option to data sync TidyHQ contacts and WordPress users. Enable one way keeping one system as a primary, or both ways allowing consistant information on both systems.

3.0.0

TidyConnect has been completely redeveloped and now works slightly differently. It no longer matches the user email address, but now will always create a new user for TidyHQ contacts upon login or when added by an administrator. This allows full compatibility between TidyHQ and WordPress allowing WordPress to always maintain correct information from TidyHQ.
