Awesome Plugin

Great plugin. Instead of setting up ht authentication yourself you can use this plugin and it will allow you to use an existing user and password to authenticate instead of adding one on top or for creating this type of authentication yourself connection it to the users in the admin.

Only thing I missed was some more documentation so 4/5 starts. Thanks!
