Wordpress setup

Assuming that you have already installed wordpress site, lets take a look on plugin installation. For authorization/authentication from Flarum forum, using flarum-ext-auth-wp, you need to instal two plugins on Wordpress site:

  1. WP REST API - OAuth 1.0a Server (v. 0.2.1 or higher) - JSON-based REST API for WordPress, originally developed as part of GSoC 2013;
  2. WP REST API (2.0-beta14 or higher) - Authenticate with your site via OAuth 1.0a.


When installation will be completed -> activate plugins from Plugins page in Wordpress console.

Then you need to register new application (your forum based on Flarum). Go to WP admin panel and navigate to Users -> Applications:

Wordpress applications

Add new application:

Wordpress addapplications

Fill fields and click Add Consumer. After that you will be redirecting to Edit Application page:

Wordpress editapp

Below there is OAuth Credentials section with Client Key and Client Secret values. This values you need to copy to flarum-ext-auth-wp extension settings on Flarum Extensions page:

Flarum ext

Then click Save Changes. Aaaaaaaaaand that's it! Now you can use your Wordpress site account for login on your awesome Flarum forum. GLHF ;)
