OSCommerce, vBulletin, and WordPress.
I'm using WordPress to run my site's articles, and front page news updates. Users are encouraged to join discussions on vBulletin. The site also runs a e-commerce store using oscommerce.
Right now, all three systems require a different logins.
It keeps it simple, and also secure, but it also leads to some confusion and usability issues.
I have looked into this a little, and doing the vBulletin integration is the hardest due to the commercial nature of the software and such.
I just wanted to hear opinions for or against unified login.
I think it's a pain in the neck for me as user and an obstacle to participating in the forums unless I have a pressing support question, but it seems to be normal practice.
As for WP and OSC, isn't there a bridge available?
I was 100% assured that they would never upgrade in unison and every version upgrade or security update I did could shell the single authentication.
Amen to that! I'll never do a Drupal + Gallery site again.
So scratch what I said about OSC + WP bridge.
so a wp or oscom profile creation page can have a nice big buton of facebook, asking if that visitor would like to login using there facebook profile details.
