WordPress Simple-LDAP-Login plugin

Trying out WordPress to replace the aging installation of MovableType that this blog is run on, and ran into a few issues with the Simple-LDAP-Login plugin.

In the Advanced section, configure the LDAP Login Attribute – it claims that you only need to set it if it is something other than uid, but in practice it was not sending an attribute if I did not set the value, so the bind dn looked like “=<username>,<base_dn>”.

Unfortunately, turning on the LDAP Exclusive flag seemed to have no impact, so I will just have to create WordPress user password as very obtuse, so the fallback does not fallback to an easily hacked password.
