This is a plugin for Wordpress 3.0+ to allow for authentication to North Carolina State University's WRAP authentication mechanism. ---------- Created By ---------- Plugin provided by NC State Univeristy Office of Information Technology Outreach Technology http://ot.ncsu.edu @ncsu_oit_ot ------------------------- Installation Instructions ------------------------- 1: Download the latest release (not actual project code) from the github page located at: http://github.com/ncsuwebdev/Plugin-Wordpress-WrapAuthentication 2: Extract folder "ncstate-wrap-authentication" into your Wordpress plugin directory, typically located in /wp-content/plugins. If your Wordpress installation allows plugins to be installed via a zip file, you can do that as well by clicking on "Plugins" -> "Add New" -> "Upload" and upload the zip file." NOTE: This only works if you download the pre-packaged zip file from github. If you download the source directly, uploading that zip file will not work correctly. Essentially, you need to ensure that the /wp-content/plugins/ncstate-wrap-authentication directory exists and put the contents of the download in the folder. 2: Copy the _files/.htaccess file distributed with the plugin into your base Wordpress directory. If you already have an .htaccess file in your base Wordpress directory, append the contents of the distributed .htaccess file to the exisitng one. 3: Log into the admin section of your Wordpress site, typically at http://[yoururl]/wp-admin 4: Click on "Plugins." 5: You should have a plugin called "NC State WRAP Authentication" in your plugin list. Click the "Activate" link under it. 6: If the username you logged into Wordpress with does not match your Unity ID, you should create yourself a user that matches and grant it admin permissions. You can do that by clicking the "Users" link and then the "Add New" link. Be sure to give the user the role of "Administrator" otherwise your account will not be able to administrate your wordpress instance. 7: The plugin gives you the ability to create users in Wordpress (if they don't already exist) when they log in with WRAP. By default this is turned off, but you can change this option by going under the "Settings" link and then clicking on "WRAP Authentication". 8: At this point, you should be ready to go. My suggestion is to log in to your new Wordpress unity-id-matching account from another browser to test to make sure you get redirected to WRAP and that your account matching your Unity ID can log in successfully. ---------- References ---------- Information on NC State's WRAP Authentication http://www.ncsu.edu/wrap/ ----------------- Known Limitations ----------------- This plugin requires a valid NC State Username/Password. This plugin, when enabled, will deny access via XML-RPC. This means that editing from external sources such as native iOS devices will not work.
