Integration with wordpress

It's a shame there isn't an integration plugin for WordPress because I was using e107 but decided to move to WordPress for more customization.

  • What do you mean by "integration"? If you are looking to use oEmbed (i.e. the auto-embed style links) to embed your videos in wordpress, there is a CumulusClips plugin here: https://github.com/jhenry/OEmbed

    You'll likely need to add your CC site as a provider to your wordpress install, i.e.

    * https://developer.wordpress.org/reference/functions/wp_oembed_add_provider/
    * https://www.technosailor.com/2011/12/14/tutorial-adding-an-oembed-provider-to-wordpress/
    * https://generatewp.com/introducing-oembed-provider-generator/

    Note that the CC plugin expects a path that looks something like mysite.com/api/video/oEmbed - so keep that in mind when adding your site as a provider in WP.
  • We host a few WP sites together with "their" cumulus video site: All videos are on a cumulus site, and WP authors just paste the video address into their WP articles: Video shows up in the WP article.

    I'm talking about the login system. You log in on one side and that applies for the other
  • There are a bunch of WP plugins out there that will allow you to provide SSO for your users. My guess is that you'd need to either stand up/purchase an identity provider service (IDP), or see if there are plugins to let WP act as an IDP. Then you'd still likely need to develop a plugin for CumulusClips to allow users there to authenticate against the IDP (be it WP or a separate service). We use mod_auth_cas and a few plugins to allow CumulusClips users to authenticate with our IDP - but how you go about this will depend on what your IDP requirements end up being.

    We have a large video site and we added a WP site that allows users to post articles. Registering on the video site creates the user in WP (but not in the other way, we don't want). Easy to do, adding a few SQL requests to the WP db right after the video user is confirmed.
