Using Shibboleth to log in to WordPress at UD

On http://sites.udel.edu , you’ll see a grey bar across the top of the page.
On the far left of this bar, click Log In.
Because http://sites.udel.edu is hosted at Edublogs,  you’ll see the following UD Shibboleth Authentication Service page:sites-login-sample

In partnership with InCommon Federation, UD provides access to various digital resources nationwide for current students, faculty and staff.  We use the Shibboleth consortium‘s software to log in securely to a remote location like Edublogs with your UDelNet ID and password.

Provide your UDelNet ID (Username) and password.   Then click Login.

As of June, 2016, you will be presented with a page asking you to approve sending the listed credentials to the server sites.udel.edu. It will look like this:
