I plan to put some time into working on some of the outstanding issues over the next week or two. However, I have received issues via just about every method of communication out there. To make sure nothing is getting missed, if you are aware of an active issue that is NOT posted here – please either post it on the SourceForge tracker or reply back with a comment.
Just a quick update, I have been testing the plugin with 3.1 and will have a release out very soon. Watch the blog for updates!
In an effort to simplify my own setup, the blog address has been changed to http://wpmuldap.tuxdocs.net. The old address will redirect traffic so any existing links out there should be fine.
I’ve been doing some thinking on how to best implement group support into the plugin. This would probably be a multi phase approach, to hopefully fulfill all requests.
NOTE: This is currently a work in progress and there is no estimate on when it will be complete
Per Blog Settings
LDAP Group mapping on a per blog, per role basis. This would all for any given blog to map each individual role to a separate LDAP group. The goal would be for these groups to automatically check for new users on logon and update accordingly. The biggest concern here is figuring out a way for the automatic updating to happen without having a huge impact on performance.
Group based control of the following:
- Who can login to the blog (standard user)
- Who can login to the blog with automatic blog creation
- Who can’t login – deny list
Are there any other thoughts on other possible setups or anything else that others would like added? If so – please leave a comment with your thoughts!
There are a number of changes currently in the svn development trunk. See the download page. These changes include:
- Ability for site admins to bulk add users – also configurable for blog admins to bulk add
- Revamped administration pages
- Added simple connection test option
- Added new error check to report unique message back on creation failure if there is an email address conflict
- Remove stale css entries
- LDAP TLS Support
- Ability for site admins to convert ldap users to local users and vice versa
Any testing and feedback would be much appreciated. I have tested things to the best of my ability – and they appear to work. If someone would be willing to further test the TLS support that would be great!
