Any chance you are going to add OAuth or Facebook integration for login?

Sure, this weekend I took a look at using DotNetOpenAuth as a way of authenticating the users (OpenID, Google, Yahoo, etc etc.), and it didn't look scary at all.

I'm just finishing the "Basic Install" code, that will create a very basic forum with everything you need to get started, and when I submit that in a few days, I'll take another look.

First tests with DotNetOpenAuth done, so far a log on using Google is working.

Now we need to store some user info locally (username + e-mail), so we can identify authors of messages.

Looking into working with Facebook too, to prove it works.

The solution will not be part of the mvcForum core, but will be an example of how it can be done.
