Plugin Directory


WordPress directory authentication plugin through LDAP and LDAPS (SSL).


You can download the latest stable version of wpDirAuth from the WordPress Plugin Finder at the following locations: * Direct download: http://downloads.wordpress.org/plugin/wpdirauth.zip * WPPF home: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wpdirauth/

Using wpDirAuth

Once installed and activated, you will be able to administer your directory settings through the dedicated plugin configuration tool found under the

Directory Auth.

menu found in the WordPress Options admin section. Directory Authenticated users can now be pre-added to your wordpress system and granted roles by going to the Add Dir Auth User menu found in the Wordpress Users admin section. Contextual help for this section is available for this section within WordPress' built-in help menu. See the inline help found in the tool for more information on the settings. There is a secondary activation toggle, so you can install and activate the plugin, check out the options panel, but not immediately accept directory authentication, or even simply turn the feature on or off at any time.

Tons. The entire codebase could stand refactoring.

Source and Development

wpDirAuth welcomes friendly contributors wanting to lend a hand, be it in the form of code through SVN patches, user support, platform portability testing, security consulting, localization help, etc. The [current] goal is to keep the plugin self-contained (ie: no 3rd-party lib) for easier security maintenance, while keeping the code clean and extensible. Focus is on security, features, security, and let's not forget, security. Unit tests will hopefully be developed and constant security audit performed. Recurring quality patch contributions will lead to commit privileges to the project source repository. Please post questions/requests for help to the wordpress forums and/or email wpdirauth@gilzow.com The project source code is available on the WordPress Plugin Repository: * Stable: http://svn.wp-plugins.org/wpdirauth/trunk/ * Unstable: http://svn.wp-plugins.org/wpdirauth/branches/dev/ * Historical: http://svn.wp-plugins.org/wpdirauth/tags/ The Sybversion repository can be browsed and tracked (RSS, etc) through the WP Plugin Repo source browser at: * http://dev.wp-plugins.org/browser/wpdirauth/ The generated code documentation can be found at: * http://labs.tekartist.org/wordpress/wpdirauth/phpdocs/ The WP Plugin Repo also offers a convenient ticketing system for bug and task tracking. * Existing tickets: http://dev.wp-plugins.org/query?status=new&status=assigned&status=reopened&group=priority&component=wpdirauth&order=priority * Open a new ticket: http://dev.wp-plugins.org/newticket

Project History

Originally started from a patched version of wpLDAP (1.02+patch), wpDirAuth has since then been heavily overhauled and features have been modified and added. In other words, a classic case of pimp my lib' (hopefully for the better). * Current: wpDirAuth: http://tekartist.org/labs/wordpress/plugins/wpdirauth/ * Original: wpLDAP: http://ashay.org/?page_id=133 * wpLDAP Patch: http://www.pkrinternet.com/~rbulling/private/wpLDAP-1.02-ssl.patch
