OpenID support coming soon…
I just wanted to announce I have a primitive prototype of OpenID working with bbPress and should have a more stable version for experimental testing within a few days (likely by the end of the weekend). The only requirement is your PHP needs CURL with https (ssl) support, which many servers have or can easily add ie. via cpanel’s rebuild PHP (check your PHPINFO to be certain).
I finally got an old openid 1.1 framework working with openid 2.0 so this makes it possible to use it with all the newest providers: aol, yahoo, microsoft and now even Google (as a “consumer”, not as a server).
The biggest problem was making it work without extra libraries like the complex math support and even DOMXML which is not available on many shared hosting PHP4 servers. But found a way around that too I’ll eventually add fsockopen support with ssl so even CURL is not a requirement.
ps. OpenID on WordPress.com needs to be fixed to offer a secure login when a cookie is not present like every other provider. This is annoying
