    Hi,

    Why does this plugin rewrite wp_authenticate rather than just use the authenticate filter?

    Rewriting the wp_authenticate looses the compatibility with any other plugin which depends on it – in my case, jetpack.

    because it was written at a time when pluggables.php was the only method and I just haven’t had time to go back and rewrite it. 😉

    Ok, makes sense 🙂
    I’ll see if i can find some time to hook it up to authenticate filter rather than rewriting the wp_authenticate. I’ll post here if you’re interested, or let me know if you have it on the nearest TODO list then i’ll just wait 🙂

    it’s on the TODO list. I just have to stop speaking at so many WordCamps!

    Actually, I have another plugin I’m writing where the two are both going to need to work in concert, so I have a *need* for it to hook into the authenticate filter.

    had some time today and while it’s not the complete overhaul i want to do, it at least now defaults to using the authenticate filter, and then falls back to pluggable if the WordPress version is super old.

    Want to test the new version for me and see if it works in your situation?

    Hi,

    Did a quick test on my blog and it worked fine. Was able to connect jetpack without issues (had to disconnect and connect JP again to get it working properly).

    Thanks, hope it gets polished and released soon, as i don’t like running local mods 🙂

    Just need to test it in a multi site, then I’ll push it out. Should hopefully happen later today.

    my setup is a multisite by the way

    I’m going to go ahead and mark this one as resolved as I pushed the changes out in v1.8.0. If 1.8.0 didn’t fix things, let me know and I’ll reopen.
