[Repost] OpenID and my db schema


#1

Hi,
I posted this before, but didn’t get an answer, so I’m trying again.

I’ve recently decided to use OpenID to let users log in to my site
instead of old fashioned account creation. They’ll be able to add a
small amount of personal details (about three things) to their
account, and post messages in the site BB. I have an openid_users
table which stores the personal details in. Obviously I’ve got
validates_uniqueness_of :openid in the model, and I’ve linked it as
required to the BB tables. Do I need any other tables or other basic
model methods, or is that it? When I set it all up properly, I’ll be
using the OpenID plug-in, and follow those docs, but for now, I just
need to know the basics.
Thanks
-Nathan

Hi Nathan ~

This is a very open ended question. I think that is why your’re not
getting
an answer. I would say, build it! See if it works and if not refactor.
It
sounds like you have a pretty good idea of how to do it. When you run
into
trouble post more specific question.

Oh, well thanks for the reply. I’m just not sure how this whole OpenID
thing works, and I didn’t want to think I’d got it all set up
properly, then have to change everything later on. But you saying “It
sounds like you have a pretty good idea of how to do it”, has answered
my question (even though you probably didn’t think it would when you
wrote it). So thanks.
