    For the forums on our site we are looking to use openid (http://openid.net/) to allow people to log in and post. I was planning on using the code from the DotNetOpenId project http://code.google.com/p/dotnetopenid/

    This is in addition to the normal login/signup process.

    I was wondering how to tie the openid code to the login process to allow people to post.

    Also is it possible to have a user profile created for those using openid.

    If you are not familiar with openid this is a simple safe for work explanation: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xcmY8Pk-qEk

    Hello Gregory,

    You will have to add a new provider to Sitefinity, using the OpenID. Actually, we like this idea very much, and will try to create such provider in several days. If we succeed, we will post it in our blogs.

    All the best,

    That'd be great. I'll be tooling around with it a bit if I get it working I'll post back here. If you could let me know if you do a post on this I would appreciate it.

    Hello Gregory,

    We will try to do it by the end of the week. There are many things in the schedule list, but we will try to fit this in it somehow :)

    Thank you very much for keeping me up to date. I must say that from what I see the support for this product is very well done, the responses to questions are always professional and the videos have really helpful.

    Hello Gregory,

    We have some progress, but still, we are trying to fit this in the schedule.
    What we found is, that OpenID should be synchronized with our membership provider - basically you should map a user to corresponding one in our provider. The reason about this is that the Microsoft's providers expect username and passwords to be submitted, while the OpenID works in different way.

    We are still looking forward to develop it.

    All the best,

    Hi Emiliano Faraone,

    We are still not ready with this, unfortunately. I will bring this back to table and check if we can do it these days.

    Hello Luke Horan,

    Unfortunately no. We have this task for the 4.0 version, and plan to expand the single sing on options with it.
