OJS: Syncing users with WordPress

Describe the problem you would like to solve
I’m currently building a web for an institute that is hosting and association and a journal. I need the multiple functionalities that Wordpress have (newsletters, posting events and congresses, a forum, intranet for collaboration among researchers…) but it would be great to use the same users for OJS.

Describe the solution you’d like
I don’t know much about computer science, but it would be great if there could be a plugin to extract the list of user/password from a Wordpress database and add them automatically to OJS database. In case further properties were required, they could be included in the signup form in WP and selected as a mandatory.

Hola Carles,

Benvingut a la comunitat.

Que jo sàpiga, no hi ha cap integració per fer SSO amb wordpress però has fet una ullada al llistat de plugins?


Poder openID, Shibboleth et podrien servir pel que demanes.
