issues with existing accounts edit
hi ii want to know what happen with users already with an account? how does openid benefit.
unless openid is just to login but not registration so you still need to open an account the regular way.
Testing current state of OpenID extension edit
Is it possible to edit the extension so it uses other captcha methods as well, in addition to ReCaptcha? RC is a bit difficult at times. If the form could detect the captcha that is being used on the site in other locations (ConfirmEdit, which is now included in a MW download by default), and use that same method, that would be awesome. This way the same captcha chosen by the admin will used for all purposes. That detection could be done by detecting the value of the variable $wgCaptchaClass. This is how that variable is set:
$wgCaptchaClass = 'QuestyCaptcha';
I spent my whole day trying to make this happen but I was not able to understand what was going on. I can do basic PHP stuff but thats it. This is a bit advanced for me.
