@ Devs - Bump

OpenID support is a must nowadays.  Only a few forum systems have adopted it so far, but many major websites and systems now use it.  We need to be on the forefront of this - I was hoping to have implemented it a few years ago when the creates of OpenID first approached YaBB when we were one of the big players.  We missed that major opportunity and now need to catch up.

I have wanted to support OpenID for a few years now when it was still new.  I think this is something we MUST implement in YaBB to stand out from other forum systems.  It has recently been adopted by AOL, Facebook, Yahoo, Google, SourceForge, and many other large players.

Ummm - yes, LOL

But its a great IDEA!  (this has been discussed before)

I believe you can safely start work on it with the version 2.x code, and not worry about a re-write anytime soon. (I am not speaking for anyone other than myself -- and any developer might give you other advice)

I have already thought about how to do password/user synchronization with YaBB, so if you want to send me an e-mail or PM, I'll respond to it.

I find your lack of faith disturbing.

Allowing Facebook users to use their FB login

I am getting in a unique situation where Facebook is attracting some of the audience which would be better served by a message board but aren't familiar with message boards. They are using groups on Facebook that do not have nearly as great functionality on Yabb to discuss topics.

I hope to bridge this gap by allowing users to login with their Facebook information. I see other web sites around the internet that do this.

Is this possible or is it dramatically more complicated than I expect?
