Google & Facebook Connect

Post by cozbaldwin » Thu May 14, 2009 5:01 pm

It would be a very good thing if there was a way to implement Google FriendConnect AND/OR Facebook Connect into the login/commenting system of phpMyFAQ. The web is quickly turning to an OpenID world and these two methods are sure to be the biggest.

Hi,

support for OpenID is possible and planned for a future version.

What do you expect with a connection to e.g. Facebook? The idea is very interesting!

Well, my first thought is that it would simply make it easier for users to login to my FAQ system using their Google or facebook account rather than have yet another registration & login to remember.
But, additional connection to Facebook might be cool too.

Maybe if a person is using phpmyFAQ for their business, and their business also has a Facebook page, new FAQ records could be published on the Facebook page as they're published.

It's all relative to individual's needs.

In my situation, I have a community-oriented website with 1 phpBB, 2 Wordpress blogs, 2 phpmyFAQ databases, and a Flash-based Chat application. As of now, my users have a separate registration for each one of those systems. But Google FriendConnect (and/or Facebook Connect) is being installed to each one so people can use their Google accounts to post on the BB, or comment on the Wordpress blog. How great if they could also comment/ask on my FAQs using that same login!

Hi,

OpenID support is a really good feature for phpMyFAQ 2.6.

The Facebook idea is very nice. I'll think about it for 2.6, too.

OpenID would be awesome - is this already of feature now that 2.6 is out (I didn't see it, but I might have missed it)?
