Wordpress Single Sign on with Facebook Connect

edited December 2009 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.8
I was looking at the single sign on plugin for integrating vanilla with wordpress and I would like to know if the method listed in http://lussumo.com/docs/doku.php?id=vanilla:integration:wordpress applies if you have Facebook connect available as well. For the Facebook connect plugin for Wordpress I am using http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/sociable/, which I believe maps the Facebook account to a database entry in the wordpress users DB.

Has anyone tried this? Should it work?

  • Thats a really good idea it should work :D

    The Wordpress integration you linked above is strictly for Vanilla 1, while the Single Sign On plugin is only for Vanilla 2.
  • Would anyone be interested in adding SSO + Facebook connect and patching Vanilla 2 to integrate with Wordpress for compensation?

    Direct message me if you are interested.

    Could the result be distributed/open-sourced?
  • Yep. I have no reason to hoard such a thing.

    Do you have a preference on how they're integrated? I see three options: Wordpress running on Vanilla 2's user tables, V2 running on WP's user tables, or plugins that keep the 2 sets of user tables in sync. I currently use the third method for a vBulletin/Wordpress integration because I think it's the least invasive and most likely to maintain compatibility moving forward. Specifically, I disabled the ability to register via Wordpress and handle everything (registration, profile editing, etc) through the forum.

    Do you have a pre-existing Wordpress install which needs the current users maintained, or are you starting from scratch?

    This one.

    Pre-existing
  • Has work on this started? I'm quite interested in this one taking off :)

    Thinking about Facebook Connect, another great one to have in this package would be OAuth (which encompasses Twitter and Google Friends IIRC).

    I think having the registration and logins being handled by Vanilla would be a better choice. People using the SSO plugin with WordPress now would most likely appreciate this.

    I am curious, though, if a user changes his username or email via WordPress, does it get updated in Vanilla's database instantly? How about changes via Vanilla?
