Sign-In Options For Vanilla 2.1
Most of the afternoon today, I have been trying to understand what my options are in terms of offering sign-in options. It seems Open ID sign-in won't likely work for all OpenID people. It also looks like I cannot reliably offer any Google sign-in options without subscribing to a $199/month service. It does appear, however, that I can install some applications that will allow Twitter and Facebook sign-ins. I must configure these on the Facebook and Twitter ends, and then enable them from the "Social" spot in my Vanilla dashboard.
There is a GoogleSignIn plug-in available for Vanilla 2.1. It requires an OpenID sign-on plug-in. But the best I can tell the GoogleSignIn plug-in just won't work.
I was hoping my forum's users might be able to sign-in with Google, but I can't rationalize $2,400 per year for that, right now.
Whoever may read this: Do my assessments of all these sign-in options for Vanilla 2.1 concur with your experience?
