We´re runnig wp in a multi site environment for academic purposes. wpDirAuth is easy to use and helps us to let site administrators easyly integrate users without establishing additional passwords. Thats comfortable for the users and helps us to raise acceptance of the blog system.
And, last but not least, the plugin developers are very keen to help in cases of technical issuses. That´s for me as multi service provider veeeerrry helpful. So five stars!
I had some trouble, as a newcomer to both php and WordPress, getting the plugin to work, so I posted a support question. I received a response quickly, and got some great advice on troubleshooting. Once I was able to post more details from my troubleshooting issues, the developer quickly fixed a bug and after an update I was able to get the plugin working smoothly.
I had tried several other LDAP solutions and none worked. This worked OTB. I also found the answer to my question regarding how to support several hundred existing accounts created using an LDAP plugin we had tried that didn't work very well. So, thank you for that.
I would think that supporting multiple Base DNs would be useful. We have a situation where there are 2 large user groups in separate container whose shared base encompasses practically the entire AD tree, so being able to specify 2 sub base DNs would be much more efficient than having to query the top level base.
Works with multisite, SSL/TLS actually works, and it allows easy customization of the login box to match corporate standards.
We've been using this for years. The setup is easy and the instructions are clear, and once set up it just works. The only problems we've ever had have been when the directory authentication server itself has been down.
Using 4.1.1, works flawlessly, very easy to set up.
Could strongly use LDAP group/WP role mapping. Unless I missed it, it would be wise to add this. LDAP group users are likely going to fall under a different role than the WP default (subscribers)
Hardly a true con. Plugin works great, highly recommend.
I've got this installed on a few sites, and a couple multisite installations, and it saves me so much time! Works well with our campus LDAP setup.
