Support » Plugins and Hacks » Combing WordPress Login method with an external site
8 years, 11 months ago
I’d like to have the WordPress Login/Password field use that info to not only login to WordPress, but a site that is not WordPress. An ASP site that uses access for login.
This would be for a members only section of documents, that is over 1000 pages and doesn’t need to be moved over to the WordPress server.
The login/password’s for WordPress can be pre-created to match them on the other server.
Anywhere to start, or method to do this, would be appreciated. Thank you.
You could plug in an action hook, for example wp_login and write your authentication logic for the other application there.
WordPress hooks are listed here: http://wphooks.flatearth.org
or in the official wordpress documentaion.
Thank you, I will look into that. Not sure exactly where to go from there, but it’s a great start. Here’s an example of the login page, if you’re curious http://tinyurl.com/3gdsry
