Can you link to the plugin? I don’t know that off the top of my head.
It sounds like a plugin which lets you use OpenID or other commercial services to sign in…
If users sign in using your WordPress domain using RPX, then they should automatically be signed into your bbPress (I can’t say for sure though, since I’ve never used PPX).
But to have it work 100% of the time, you’d probably have to disable registration and signin from the bbPress side of things…
Yeah, looks like an openID wrapper of some kind. I tried it on a few sites with my google ID and it was really slick.
Here’s the WP plug-in. Will let you know if it works with bbpress once I try it.
And yes, good thinking about the log-in–would probably redirect people to always login through wp/rpx just to be sure.
I use RPX, the easiest way is to redirect (a http refer in first line in register.php) to WP login.
By the way RPX is a very cool and polished solution for all weblogs that doesn’t want to manage user base.
It supports OpenID and the major so called “social” systems
Can anyone make that WP plugin a BBP plugin?
I’ll give you a cookie
