Though Kim's placeholder
for publishing the php code
integration is still "on hold" Kim
has just blogged
about the wordpress
version differences betwen his "test" box and the "production
. He also mentioned that "a bunch
" of people have been using the infocard client
on his site
... Well, I sure am one of them
. However i'd like to meet the others... SO if there are others out there trying to use learn more about infocards
, introduce yourself. Well, I did log into Kim's site
with an infocard
, but I informed Kim
about my moves... I'm not doing anything behind his back...
So I'd suggest you folks who are trying to log into identityblog
, to introduce yourselves... Well, we can start a "support group
I'm not too worried about the "php
" part as the php
code for WordPress
I predict would be an extremely simple thing... Here's my prediction...
All the code would do is, "provision" the "authenticated" user info mysql
, and establish a WordPress
session. (Correct me if i'm wrong Kim, but infocard addresses a specific usecase. ie: Authentication and not Authorization)
. Additionally, the user may be associated with a "role" that would enable the "user" to comment on the blog... nothing more... The php
stuff aint magic... The "REAL" magic is the browsers capability to invoke the "Identity Selector"... Now, Kim
, if your'e reading this... could you share "THAT
" code ?
Now, I may get a response in the form of ... Just embed an OBJECT tag in your HTML code and that would do it.. But hey !! that aint it. Embedding an OBJECT tag in HTML just does not do it. There's more to it than just an OBJECT tag. There's some relationship between the browsers capability of identifying the application type "infocard" and having the ability to invoke the Identity Selectior thats installed on the desktop. I know that ie7 Can do it
as I blogged about that earlier
mentioned that he "had"
a plugin for ie6
. Well, apart from me trying to develop a open source
version of the "Identity Selector" in Java ( which has nothing to do with HIGGINS )
, I also am trying to develop a plugin/addon
. And If Kim
shares that "plugin" code for ie6
, it would make life so simple.... (at least mine...)
PS: In order to get a "browser" to "invoke" the installed WCF Identity Selector, the browser needs to recognize "specific" HTML extenstions. I do have a doc that describes those extentions, but am currently unclear on it's workflow; as I got my local browser (firefox
) to recognize "those" extentions, but was unable to invoke the WinFX Component
from my HTML page with an embedded OBJECT tag.
I've got a lot more to learn..... and I shall share
as I roll along... Will you ?
