This project needs to be completed in two days. If you have worked with Facebook login before, it may only take you 20 minutes or less.
We have a working login feature for our website with mysql database with a table that contains email and password. Successful login sets cookies and then moves user to account page.
Now we have added a wordpress blog. I want users to use my existing member data to log into wordpress at the same time they log into my site.
There is a plugin that does most of what I want. The plugin is called External Database Authentication Reloaded. What it does is use my mysql database table instead of the wordpress table to get username and password. It works well.
What the plugin does NOT do is allow me to use MY login page. It wants to use the wordpress login page.
Here is the assignment.
I want users to log into my website using my login page and then be logged into the wordpress blog at the same time.
