Other than allowing a backup way to log in to phpBB in case I forget my phpBB login credentials, what good is allowing this? I still have to register, right (otherwise how can I get to the UCP to associate my ID here)?Noxwizard wrote:Facebook and Google logins have been enabled.
For example, if I'm a guest, and the board allows guest posting, can I log in with my Google account to post and you'll display my Google name?
I just associated my Google account with phpBB here and I can login by just clicking the Google button (without typing anything in), so that might be a little faster. However, is that session-based (and will expire at some time, requiring typing again) or is that how it will always work (on this PC -- I presume you've set a cookie with my Google information).
