Using drupal users in wordpress (5 posts)

    I have several sub-domains on my site. One is using Drupal while others are using wordpress.

    On drupal sub-domain user registration is allowed and they can post blogs etc.

    I am now adding a sub-domain with wordpress to have directory listing. I want to allow drupal users to log-in to this sub-domain [wordpress] and post listings.

    I know that I can allow user registration on my wordpress directory sub-domain but than users have to remember two login ids and passowrds.

    I want to create a site wide single user system [that is on drupal] and to be used in wordpress. I can add required roles in drupal

    Can respected members please guide me how I can achieve this?

    Many thanks in advance for your time and consideration.

  2. The last good plugin I saw for that was in 2007, and the site is gone now... I don't think you can easily do this. What version of Drupal are you on, and have you asked them this?

    I have found a plugin

    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/external-database-authentication/

    This allows me to connect to any database including drupal.

    Now my problem is that I am using PremiumPress / DirectoryPress theme to create a directory and the theme is not supporting external user database.

    With normal wordpress installation it is working great.

    I hope to find a solution. I have asked theme developer as I have purchased the theme.

    If the access to the wordpress site doesn't need to be immediate and you're using Drupal 6 (or previous versions) you could also directly migrate the user data from Drupal to WordPress every X hours/days/...

    Hello softmodeling

    I am not interested in migrating ..... I never asked for that.

    My requirement was having single user database across all sub-domains using drupal, wordpress etc.
