Since I’ve been using WordPress, (blogging platform of choice), with TNG (online genealogy collaboration) integration has been a pain with site owners having to modify themes to give the appearance of working together. Unfortunately this didn’t help with the sharing of user databases. 4:14 is trying to rectify that problem.
The TNG/Wordpress plugin is the first of its kind trying to bring tighter integration between WordPress and TNG and even allows for user database sharing. According to the site:
You can optionally sync logins between TNG and WordPress. If you turn this option on, all logins are handled by WordPress. Whenever a user attempts to login, the plugin checks both the WordPress userlist and the TNG userlist for login credentials and if the user only exists in WordPress, a record is also created in TNG, and vice-versa. If a new user registers, the plugin creates the user in both databases. If a user is deleted, they are deleted from both databases.
While I’m currently having problems with the plugin, the author is more than willing to help me fix the issue. If it works correctly, I can see more people using the two platforms together. DoddemaGen members should be able to see the new plugin in action soon by following DoddemaGen Database. Stay tuned for more information.
