The road to 3.0

I just wanted to give everyone a heads up that the svn trunk will be in a very alpha state as I beginning testing and tweaking for the 3.0 WP release.  Anyone else who is testing – feel free to post back anything weird you may be noticing.  As of right now, things seem to function in a basic form.

    Are MU plugins still in the same folder or are they moved to the regular plugins folder? I haven’t had a chance to read up on if this. I have 3.0 installed locally and would be happy to test any changes.

    mu-plugins isn’t there by default – but if you create the folder under wp-content you should be good to go. At this point, I have not tested anything yet on what happens when its loaded in and the blog is in single user mode (so beware). It should work fine though if you copy the files over after activating multisite mode.

    I just copied over the structure from my live site as suggested by andrea_r: http://wpmututorials.com/news/testers-start-your-engines/ . So far so good.

    We’ve been using this plug-in here at Saint-Laurent College in Canada and it works great!
    Are you planning to add AD group functionality to the plugin?
    I would like to be able to map the students with a specific WP role, and employees (teachers, administration personnel) to another WP role. Any idea how I could do that?
    Let me know if this is something interesting that you would like to implement in future releases. I would be interested in helping to develop that.

      My goal is once I’m satisfied with functionality in 3.0 testing, I want to tackle the much requested and desired group feature. So unless the day job gets in the way, I hope to have this in the 3.0 release!

    Is it possible to encrypt the Search User password in the database? Would be nice if this was not plain text.

    Thanks for a great plugin.

    I’m experiencing issues when blog admins bulk add a large group of users (say 30 or so users) that don’t already have blogs, so a personal blog is created for the user in addition to adding them to the admin’s blog. It appears that a number of tables are not being properly created for their personal blog. ie. wp_716_options. When you try to go to their blog, you just get “The blog you have requested is not installed properly. Please contact the system administrator.” and “WordPress database error: [Table ‘wordpress.wp_716_options’ doesn’t exist]” in my WP error log. I am running WPMU LDAP v2.9. I have disabled bulk add for now as this does not happen with single user adds.

    Shoot.. sorry. I put this in the wrong article. Meant to put my comment in the WPMU Ldap 2.9 released article.

    I test the 2.9 wpmu ldap plugin with the RC1 version of wordpress 3.0. But I cannot make it run.. As I add a user, with the LDAP username than no local user is added to WP_users database as it used to be with WP 2.9.2. Is that a WP 3.0 bug or did I miss stg on my side? Thanks for your help

      The 2.9 version will not work on 3.0. If you want to test on 3.0, you’ll have to grab the latest development trunk in the svn repository.

    Yes that’s the one I got. It is just labeled 2.9 in the php file. That’s why..

    But i definiticvely had problem to make it word , in particular to add user in the WP database as I mentioned.

      just to confirm, you have the plugin in the mu-plugins folder on a 3.0 install that is multisite enabled right? If those weren’t the issues, what type of ldap server are you attempting to connect to?

    @Aaron Axelsen
    yes 3.0 multisite enabled and mu-plugins flder .

    LDAP is a SUN Directory server. I could connect without any problem with the 2.9.2 WP version

    @Isabelle Moullet
    Are the attributes all configured the same way as in 2.9? There are a few more configurable options now than what there were in 2.9

    @Aaron Axelsen
    Yes I have. I used for goup attribute the sane as what I have for member in the old version ( unilmemberof in my case) That’s the only difference.
