  • Hi all,

    I posted this in the plugins forum and got no reply so I’m re-posting here. Does anyone know of a plugin that can do this or would anyone be game to code one for me?


    Original Post:
    I am currently in the throws of setting up a WP site for a childcare centre. There are two groups of people who will be using the site – staff and parents.

    for convenience, all of my users are going to be authenticated by and existing Open Director setup on a Mac OS X server (I believe that OD is based on Open LDAP but I could be wrong). I currently have the authentication working well using the ‘simple-ldap-authentication’ plugin but there is one limitation: I cannot allow a user to reset their password via WordPress.

    I would like to have this functionality for obvious security reasons – i.e so users can set their own passwords and they expire after 90 days.

    Firstly, is there a plugin that will let me so this? If not, who would be game to write one? (I have no knowledge of PHP at all!) Secondly, (I can ask over in the Apple forums if need be) how do I configure the OD server to accept password resets from WP?

    Sorry for the long post. Any help is much appreciated.
