WPMU Ldap Released

NOTE: This release is REQUIRED for WordPress MU 2.7.1 and later

This is a bugfix release that is necessary for WordPress MU 2.7.1.  Some core functionality has changed which was causing the LDAP plugin to incorrectly re-populate the users with a subscribe status on blog 1.  This was causing some array_merge php errors – and also could have resulted in weird behavior on site admin logins.

Unfortunately, if you are affected by this, there is some minor database cleanup that is necessary.  Site admin users will need the subscribe capability removed from the wp_usermeta for wp_1_capability.  Sorry for the inconvenience.

In addition, this realease also adds the ability to map the WordPress Nickname field to a ldap attribute.  If the mapped attribute does not exist, it will use the default value to populate the display name.

As always, the plugin can be downloaded from the Sourceforge Project Page.

    For those of us not familiar with poking around in the database can you clarify the statement below (perhaps with a before and after example). Is the whole meta_value to be blanked (e.g. a:1:{s:10:”subscriber”;b:1;}), OR can the entire row be deleted.

    “Site admin users will need the subscribe capability removed from the wp_usermeta for wp_1_capability.”

    Thanks for a great plugin….

    How can I make my user’s blog URL NOT case sensitive?

    It is safe to remove the entire row. Since you are a site admin, be design you will have access to the blog anyway.

    This is a function of the webserver mainly. WordPress is a case sensitive app. There may be some plugins out there to handle this, otherwise you might be able to get away with using .htaccess and some apache magic – but that sounds messy. Sorry i don’t have any other ideas for you.

    From some of the research online it seems like without the ldap plugin wordpress does not have this problem and forces it be all lowercase (strtolower) but the ldap plugin code does not force this.

    Is there a way to use strtolower in the ldap files to force lowercase of blog urls? I’m an a newbie with PHP, so hopefully it wasn’t a stupid question. Thanks!
