CAS for WordPress Websites


Recommended Option

If you want to utilize GT Account based authentication via CAS for a WordPress website, it is highly recommended that you try using the Sites @ Georgia Tech service, which has GT Account authentication already built in.  Once you have your site created, it is very easy to add other users to the site, who can then log in using their own GT Account Username and password.

Alternative Option

If you have an already established WordPress site on OIT Web Hosting or another on-campus hosting solution where you are able to install plugins, and you don't want to recreate your site in the Sites @ Georgia Tech service, there is a plugin that supports CAS authentication:  Authorizer.

After installing the plugin, read the instructions carefully and configure it using the campus CAS Server configuration settings.
