Log into WP Admin by Passing Variables From Another Site (3 posts)

    Hi all,

    Hope everyone is having a great day. I have a quick question as I have searched online and on wordpress with no luck. I have a question that no one seems to have ever brought up (maybe I'm using the wrong search terms).

    Here is my example:

    website-1 uses admin/pass to log into site.
    website-1 has a link to WP-Admin
    Clicking on website-1's link will authenticate user into WP-Admin and take user to the admin dashboard.

    *website-1 is a java/jsp/struts driven app (not that that matters)

    Has anyone ever tried this or have any suggestions?

    I appreciate everyone's help. Thanks!

    It's over a year old, but an SSO plugin might be what you're looking for

    thanks i tried to install it, but it switched everything to "https" and i need it as "http"... but basically i created a form on Website-1 and submitted the info to the page.

    is there a way for me to do this without having the username/password being visible?
