I've tried posting this in the BuddyPress forums, but my posts seem to just get sucked into a black hole or something.
I'm just curious as to whether or not anyone has gotten the Shibboleth plug-in (http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/shibboleth/) and BuddyPress to work together.
Here's the deal. I'm using:
Shibboleth plug-in 1.3
When either plug in is enabled apart from the other, they will work as expected.
When both plug-ins are enabled simultaneously, a new user will be created/maintained in WordPress Mu from the attributes in the Shibboleth headers, but the user will never be logged in.
I imagine this might have something to do with both plug-ins doing something to override the standard wordpress login, but I can't see what.
Anyone have any thoughts or ideas? I'd appreciate anything. I've been working on this idea to use BuddyPress as a way to create online research/academic communities at Ohio State University.
