    Welcome to the community!

    What version of Vanilla are you running?

    Could you also post the versions of the OpenID and Google Sign in plugins?

    Thankyou

  • openid is version 0.1a and the google plugin is 1.0 and the forum is 2.0.18.8

  • allow_url_fopen

    ask your host to change php settings if you are not allowing to change them.

    I may not provide the completed solution you might desire, but I do try to provide honest suggestions to help you solve your issue.

  • what do i need to ask them to change the settings to? sorry im a bit clueless with this. thankyou all for you help its muchly appreciated i had given up but it would be really nice if i could offer sign up through gogle and open id aswell

  • give them the error you are receiving - they will know what to do and ask them to either fix php setting or allow you to change it. (one would hope they would understand)

  • ok cool, its let me do everything else, i had phpbb forum on there before, it doesnt use a separate database does it as i only have one with my hosting and thats used with the forum? I will email them now :)
