OpenID Support

Post by paulej » Sat Mar 27, 2010 12:11 am

We've added OpenID support to Packetizer Forums to make it easier to log in and create accounts!

If you run your own phpBB board, you might also want to add OpenID Support to your site:
http://www.zenorsoft.com/community/view ... f=30&t=841

(Please be advised that the software from Zenorsoft uses an OpenID library from JanRain that does not work with PHP 5.3. To work around that issue, replace the "Auth" library with this one: http://sourcecookbook.com/en/recipes/60 ... w-i-did-it)

And if you wish to operate your open OpenID server, you might consider downloading software that easily lets you do so:

Cheers!
