OpenID, Facebook etc. authentification

Postby KBleivik » Fri Mar 29, 2013 7:03 pm

We have written about minimizing spam on phpBBs. By using (requiring) OpenID, Facebook Ids or other Ids to register on your forum, you can get rid av additional spam. Below we list some of these resources (modifications). Personally I should like that these authentication methods were implemented in the default installation and kept up to date and supplied with future digital Id authentication, especially during registration.

Facebook For PhpBB Light

A free PhpBB3 MOD that enables users to register or log into a phpbb forum with an existing Facebook account.


OpenID authentication for phpBB3

Login with any OpenID account, including Google, Yahoo, and Flickr
Use multiple OpenID URLs per account
Register a new account via OpenID
Admin can delete OpenID URLs in the ACP User panel
Tested on phpBB 3.0.5 +
Works with Prosilver & Subsilver2



What these code modifications do, is to create a single sign on across different, multiple domains for both phpbb and other sites/codes/apps to use.
