Signing On Can't Post

I've noticed that if you sign on with your pw to P&W, you must repeat the process to enter Speakeasy. Why is it necessary to sign in twice?

I just go to my Speakeasy bookmark, and my browser signs me in automatically.

I actually don't know and this is a Jason question. It's either a glitch or it's about how the PW site is configured....

Re: [motet] Signing On [In reply to] Can't Post

For a little while longer, it's the way the site is configured. Since the Speakeasy was already in place when we did the site redesign, we wanted to avoid having an adverse impact on the SE community when we brought up the new site. That meant we couldn't just zap the forum or load it into something that's already integrated with our content management system. The result is that we have two completely separate login systems.

What I'm working on now is software to integrate the two login systems, so that logging in to one automatically logs you in to the other. For existing users, that means a system to link a Speakeasy account to a pw.org account. I looked at how many users I could do automatically, but the only thing I have to go on is matching e-mail addresses, and that didn't come up with many matches.

It will probably be a matter of logging into pw.org, going to your My P&W page, and then entering your Speakeasy user name and password into a form that links the two.

Re: [jason] Signing On [In reply to] Can't Post

Why can't people just bookmark the Main Index page of the Speakeasy?

I ask because that's exactly what I do, and I get in on a single login. (Which is automated by my browser, so I never even see it.)

Unfortunately, that doesn't get you logged in to pw.org to do things like comment on articles, use the e-mail reminders, etc. What I'd like is to have the whole registration/log in system unified.

That would be great, Jason. Glad you are working on it.
