Alternate authentication providers


Hello,
 Social Media is has killed our message board. Runboard used to be a good place or archiving information but since you have create an account just to see images, our usage is drying up.

 Would it be possible to allow logins with Facebook or Google credentials?we would still need to allow them write access to the board but let them see the images.

Mark

Re:


For now - it's a no. There are some other things in the works for RB that get a lot more priority.

It is not a definite no, however. I will reconsider it at some point in a not-too-distant future.

Re:


Mark, the images are now viewable even for people who are not logged in. I just tested it out to be sure.

Re: Re:


This is becoming less of an issue. Posting pics to social media is too easy. Our members abandoned our message board. I still use forums that host their own images. Maintaining a image site and linking the images is too cumbersome.

Re: Alternate authentication providers


Hi Mark,

If you have your own website and can write or edit some code, you could consider using an image hosting script on your website, like they're describing here:

https://community.mybb.com/thread-212089.html

Since there would be no way to integrate an upload login with a Runboard login, you could give your members their own unique logins for image uploading, and remove each user if they leave your board.

I was thinking .htaccess to prevent people from embedding images somewhere other than your board, but there might be other ways in some of those scripts that I'm not aware of.

People would still need to use img tags to post them, but it would help with hosting.

Edit to add: We could help you embed the uploader in an iframe on your board, so it would be easier for your members to use.
