    Update of the OpenID login form Link to this post

    Hi guys,

    I added a short description of OpenID to the login form (r40444) and since the stylesheets of the BlackCandy theme are not under version control I couldn't add the needed styles to the repository.

    So please create a file openid_login.css in mysite/css with the following content:
    [html]
    #OpenIDLoginForm_LoginForm_OpenIDURL {
    background: url(../../sapphire/images/openid-small.gif) no-repeat;
    background-color: #fff;
    background-position: 0 50%;
    color: #000;
    padding-left: 18px;
    width: 284px;
    }

    #OpenIDDescription {
    margin-bottom: 2em;
    }

    #OpenIDDescription p {
    font-size: 1em;
    line-height: 1.3em;
    margin-top: 0.5em !important;
    }
    [/html]

    Yes, it is certainly a bewildering experience currently to choose an openid provider and use the system. Fortunately, we've now got SilverStripe to fulfil its obligations, smile knowing we're helping adoption, and we can sit back as the other side of the openid experience slowly improve.

    When I over at OSCON I met guy called Peter from SitePass. He was fairly careful not to mention details, but seemed to think he had many of the answers to make OpenID easy, and that'd what he was doing could work well with what we've done. See http://www.sitepass.com and hopefully in time we will all learn more...

    There is also some great progress in integrating OpenID into Microsofts CardSpace technology. If you are using Windows (for the moment as far as I know Linux isn't supported) you can login using CardSpace which makes e.g. phishing impossible.
