Not Supported Uses Plugins Template Edits  

I've finished a first draft of an add-on to support OpenID Authentication. This requires no code changes and only one template change. The caveat however, is that it does require two third party libraries to handle the OpenID and Yadis protocols. I've only tested it on 3.5.4, but I'm pretty sure it should work in 3.6 (RC1) as well.

Right now, this add-on allows existing users to populate a custom profile field with their OpenID URL, and then use that for subsequent logins. This does NOT allow new users to register with their OpenID... they will still need to create an initial password and such as normal. I'd like to change that in a future release.

If you're not familiar with OpenID, check out http://openid.net/

I checked with the vB Godz, they say it'll be OK to re-release this as a new mod, as the author gave blanket permission before going AWOL.

It'll be a little while before I can find the time to whip up a 3.7 version with the various requested improvements, but I'll post here as and when I get it done.

If anyone else has the time and inclination to help out, let me know.

hugh - I was a big fan of yours for a while on the vBlogetin project. I'm in for any testing you need.

Hey! Good to see you again.

Yeah, what happened with vBlogetin was a shame, but somewhat predictable once JelSoft vaporware-announced their blogs (premature announcement by about 9 months). But heck, that project taught me a lot about vB (including my new Golden Rule of "never write a huge vB project when it's likely vB will yank the rug out from under you") so personally it was worthwhile.

I'll shout when I'm closer to having something worth testing.

Hey! Welcome back!

I don't think you really need to do anything. You already offered it up for adoption, so this thread is enough to validate that. If you want to make it look official, you could respond and say "I, the party of the first part, do hereby ..." etc., in your best Imitation Legaleze.

When I get it 3.7-ized, I'll just start a new mod thread, and include attribution to you as the original author.

Hey, guys, pleeeease make OpenID autorization/registration possible! At present time pрзИИ have pkugin to accept OpenID, moreover - SMF 2.0 (beta 3.1 now) already have working implemetation of OpenId 2.0/SREG accepting. I really just not understand WHY such smart, complex forum engine like vB don't support OpenID?

cheesegrits, would you have a time frame of release for a 3.7 OpenID plugin? I'm really getting adamant about getting all of my sites OpenID enabled ASAP ... I know that holds no bearing on when you'll release your product, but a hint or estimate would make me feel better inside.

It looks like cheesegrits hasn't logged in in a month and a half. I suppose the project isn't happening?

I'm currently working on an OpenID product strongly based on the work by wnorris. It's working on vB 3.8.1 against JanRain's OpenID 2.x. There's still a couple of issues with automatic registration, but I hope to have those sorted out shortly. (stay tuned!)
