The plugin is finally complete! Now, anyone with or without a forum account can use his/her Identity credentials. They plugin will then ask you whether you wish to merge it with an existing account, or create a new one. Creating a new account is as simple as filling in four text boxes. Please also note that these are one time activities, i.e. once you gave linked you account with your Identity user, you’ll be able to login with your Identity credentials. What more, the plugin also remembers your last choice (whether to use Identity login, or not) and hence, saves time.

    That’s great and it works perfectly 🙂

    Do you consider using the identity usernames?

    Considering the fact that there will be many conflicting usernames, the current approach seems like a more ‘cleaner’ one. Although I don’t mind changing the user’s forum username to match his/her Identity username (if requested, and if available).
