Support » Developing with WordPress » [Plugin: OpenID] sharing openID tables across blogs?

  • Is it possible to share the openID information across different blogs that are already sharing the user tables? I found reference to ‘CUSTOM_OPENID_IDENTITY_TABLE’ but I’m not clear how to properly use that in the wp-config.php file.

  • Did you find the reference by looking in the code or at the DiSo Wiki:
    If you haven’t seen this wiki page, take a look.

    If you’re already sharing the user table, then you have some special definitions in your wp-config.php similar to what is instructured at:

    Just do the same thing, using the key ‘CUSTOM_OPENID_IDENTITY_TABLE’, and whatever table name you want to use. The default table name is $wpdb->prefix . ‘openid_identites’.

    that’s exactly what I’ve found, but I’m not sure how to translate the phrase “$wpdb->prefix . ‘openid_identites’. ” into what I’m using for the other shares.

    is that supposed to say “prefix-openid_identities”? what’s the table name that’s actually being shared? I don’t think I’ve ever actually run into that syntax before 🙁

    “$wpdb->prefix” is the same things as “$table_prefix” in your wp-config.php file. This means that, by default, the name of the table will be whatever your table prefix is, combined with the string “openid_identities”. If you table prefix is “wp_”, then the actual table name will be “wp_openid_identities”.

    What do you have set for your CUSTOM_USER_TABLE ?

    ah, I see now. what was confusing me was the period that was in the middle of the prefix and the table name. So, if I wanted to share the default wordpress prefix’s table, I used :

    define('CUSTOM_OPENID_IDENTITY_TABLE', 'wp_openid_identities');

    that worked out perfectly, thanks for helping a dense guy out wnorris 😉

    I’ve combined this with the method of sharing the user tables, so now registered users can log in with their openID on all my sites, yay!
