#159 closed Bug/Something is broken (fixed) should only allow OpenID logins

Reported by: Daniel Kahn Gillmor Owned by: alfredo
Priority: Medium Component: Tech
Keywords: Cc:
Sensitive: no


It's not clear to me why we'd want to allow non-OpenID logins on

Since every mfpl member has an openid account, there should be no reason to be able to create new accounts on the site.

I think, at this point, only for testing purposes (so we can get in as admins without worrying about it). OTOH, I'm not entirely sure how easy Drupal makes getting rid of the login boxes and keeping the openid one -- we'll need to check that out.

Truth is I am a total ignoramus about the inner working of OpenID and my reading over the weekend didn't saturate my aging brain very well! But that's why we're a team, no? :-)

I think we should rely only on the Open_ID for this site in production. Totally agree.

I want to hold on to this login box for the user "mayfirst" which doesn't have an OpenID user identity. I'll need this for administration and update capability until we're close to live. Let's leave the ticket open for now, though, so I remember it.

We're going to need admin and update capability when the site is live, so i think we should try to see what's possible now while we're still testing. For instance, can the mayfirst user (i'm assuming it's user 1) be authenticated by selecting an OpenID (e.g. by modifying the list of OpenIDs for that account)?

The login options available right now are confusing, and we need to see if we can trim them down to make them simpler.

I'm boosting the priority on this issue because I think it's important in order to launch the new blogs site.
