Took all of about 6 hours to fully integrate OpenId into using the widgets from RPXnow.

Did not have to change a single db field. Most of the time spent was writing controller code to correctly handle what happens when one of the current 9000+ users decides to start using an OpenId.  A bit of conditional logic, and new views.. away we go.

Big shouts to @marcusnelson from UserVoice for tunring me on to RPXnow, and big shouts to RPX for making it so dang easy.

  1. Glad to hear about your easy deployment of JanRain’s RPX solution. I like your presentation of third party auths and look forward to having you realize the benfits of a simplified login experience for your users. Please let us know if you have any feedback (we have uservoice running on Thanks
