Integration with Wordpress as private community site
Hey, I would need to integrate nodeBB into a Wordpres site as a communication medium for logged-in members. No integration into posts, just a private forum for Wordpress logged-in users with a certain level of privileges. Would need:
- nodeBB use Wordpress user base for login (SSO)
- nodeBB webspace protected so only Wordpress logged in users with a given level of rights would have access to it
Is there some WP plugin out there to provide such a functionality, if not is there anything planned? Thanks.
On your end, you'll have to install something like this: http://wordpress.org/plugins/oauth2-provider/
Then you (or perhaps myself?) can fork the NodeBB OAuth SSO skeleton plugin so that it can call your standalone oauth2 provider.
Then disable registration routes from the ACP.
We have a WordPress SSO now
@julian any new update regarding this matter? So user dont need to register in the forum.. They only register once in the wordpress website, and automatically logged in at the forum :)
Yes, you'll want to use the Wordpress SSO. There's no support for session sharing at the moment (so, the "auto login" part).
