Social network and mail logins (4 posts)

    For only a short time I've been looking I into integrate logins for my wordpress (multi)site, because I would like some interaction between my site and Facebook. I see there's a myriad of resources but haven't seen too many documented problems--the only one I've seen is that some workplaces might block Facebook related pages or logins, and that's not really a problem for me anyway.

    There seem to be a lot of options and mostly all integrated together anyway, but am curious as to whether there is any negative feedback on these?

    What has/have/had any user experiences been with these logins and especially want to hear about any problems. Thanks

  2. Integrate logins between your site and facebook?

    Each site in a multisite network has the same user ID and passwords.

    Yeah not ideal I suppose but only one site will be fully integrated. The other sites won't be having any feeds to or fro and no obvious Facebook buttons.

    My Internet has been out for the better part of a week, so hopefully it'll be up and running in the next few days and I'll start playing.

    What my main concern was is if someone logs in with Facebook and has the same user details as someone who logs on with openid, twitter or gmail. They could potentiall have identical details with only an email address being different. How would wordpress deal with multiple users with the same name?

    Well. You'd need a plugin to connect the WP ID to all those (Like Highlander on the .com site does, it doesn't care that I use different emails, so long as I API register myself between apps).

    I'm 90% sure that'll work for MultiSite.
