Do you have error reporting disabled? This way there might be a php error which you don't see. Hard to tell from here, since white page doesn't tell anything about the internal state.

try to enable error reporting if you have access to your php installation or look for a online tutorial on how to enable "display_errors" in certain directories (like your forum directory)

Also, this might help:

I personally like the idea of this mod in its ability to make it possibly easier for users to get their steam id into the forums without needing to learn how to open the console up.
It should be possible to get the steam id representation you're referring to. I'll look for a way to store that info too.

But as I know the steam id system, it should be possible with the right algorithm to convert the steamid64 the mod currently uses to the STEAM_xxx representation on the fly. See for example this:

Possible: Maybe. But that's not the point of the mod, since it presents an alternative authentication method for vb. Modifying it to a second login layer would be way beyond the scope of the mod and push the mods functionality in a direction, I don't want it to be.

Why should you have to login to your vb account first? If you linked your steam id to a vbulletin account, you can login with the steam method AND be logged in to your vb account.
Why split it up to two separate logins?
