Re: RPX + BuddyPress, what technical obstacles should we be aware of?
To clarify, this is something we’re going to be using for paying clients, not the public at large, so that should take some of the issues raised above out of the equation.
If anything, that alone would make me want to stay away from OpenID.
Don’t get me wrong, I think it’s great for newspaper sites etc where someone can log in to comment. But if I’m paying you money, I want YOU to be responsible for any data I send you, and only you.
Also, this is going to enable us to take away the 4 separate passwords / logins our paying customers need to use currently down to 2 for things like the forums, their website, billing, support, etc…. that is the main reason we’re implementing this…. otherwise we wouldn’t waste our time building something unless it was totally necessary….
Sensible and laudable. How come you can’t have one for all four and self-host it? (Honestly curious here!)
Also, if I’m logged into facebook on my computer, and close facebook
You tech genius wouldn’t do that, right?
I do this all the time. 99.99999% of the time, no one but me uses my computer. Once in a while, a guest comes over and looks something up, but it’s rare. But yeah, this is something most of us do. I never log out of sites when I’m using my computer, logged in as my user name.
