I'm testing some of the new features of 3.02 now. They look pretty nifty. (Enjoy the addin plugin). I had a question about the email login. I'm wondering if it is working correctly.

The plugin says that you get the choice of how you want to log in. Instead, I appear to be taken straight to a Google sign-in page. It wants Google acct credentials. What if the user has a yahoo or some other account? Is there any way to use those credentials (or, e.g., facebook)?

It seems that at the very least, an intermediate page should appear that gives a choice of how to log in. Something like: (a) click here to use fudforum credentials; or (b) click to use google.

I could easily add such a page to my board if you could tell me what file has the loggin url-link.

Thanks for the help. I love the upgrade.

From your description it sounds like you've enabled the "OpenID" plugin.
"NOTE: This plugin is provided for demonstration purposes only and will probably only work against Google."
I wouldn't use it on a production site just yet.
Further development is required to make it work against other login providers.
