WordPress MU Domain Mapping
Multisite login, and login redirects... (2 posts)

    I want users to be able to login from each of the blogs of the network and still be logged in when visiting other blogs in the network. Currently there is this behaviour:
    with remote login disabled, going on blog.com/wp-login.php and inserting data redirects to blog.com/wp-login.php/redirect_to=http...
    So the wp-login.php logs me in the domain, but not in the dashboard, while loggin in the second redirect logs me in the dashboard.

    with remote login enabled the redirect disappears but I cannot login into the dashboard multisite wide.

    Basically the second login (the redirect_to=http login) is the multisite one, the one that you do only once and keeps you logged on every sub blog dashboard (because dashboard is in subdomain and cookies work), while the first one is the login that is singular for each blog and makes you log on the domain (admin bar on homepage etc...)

    Is this the default behaviour of the mu domain mapping plugin? I know without a SSO you can't be logged in on different tld domains but this double login thing seems a bit odd to me, do you think it is possible to unify those?

    Web browser security prohibits a site from accessing cookies belonging to other domains. While you could hire a developer to do something for a SSO for your install a SSO is not practical in anything other than a small install.
