Re: OpenID for bbpress

Did anyone find that you could piggyback onto the WordPress integration/authentication when using the OpenID plugin? It didn’t work for me. I had the plugin activated on my WordPress site and was able to login and create users just fine, but bbPress didn’t know about the credentials and wouldn’t login.

I need to get more familiar with how the integration is working – I thought it would work fine since it created a normal WordPress user record. But it kept saying the userid was unknown… Will probably dig into it later. The WP plugin is great – the persona fill in stuff is very cool. Only quirk was my ‘Display As’ defaulted to the userid even though a name was included. But I digress.
