Support » Plugin: Separate Login » Import/Connect to external User DB

    Hello,

    I am trying to create a login page within our company’s WordPress site that is separate from the default WordPress login. I found that your plugin may help achieve this. The issue is we already have a user list that is stored in an external SQL database. I was wondering if it is at all possible to connect to an external database with your plugin. Every other plugin I have found overwrites the default WordPress login page.

    The end goal is to use this new login page as the sole point of entry into the site.

    Thank you,

    Austin

    Hi Austin,
    you need to keep at least one WordPress user in order to access to WordPress administration dashboard (back-end) because users registered or created through my plugin don’t have access to administration dashboard but only to restricted contents (front-end), viewable only by registered users and managed with plugin itself. In other words, you must keep the “normal” WordPress login method and you can’t use my plugin as the sole point of entry into the site.

    If you want to use my plugin as explained above (only on front-end side) and you need to validate users login by an external DB source, you have to edit code.

    You should take a look to separate-login/handle/seplog-manage-session.php and modify $seplog_check_login_user and $seplog_user_password_check queries.

    Regards,
    Christian

    Yes, my apologies. We are on the same page. I will take a look at those files and follow up if I find a solution.

    Thank you,

    Austin
