In the last video I showed you how to use Drupal's built-in OpenID system, to…allow folks to log in automatically, if they're already logged into an OpenID…provider site, such as LiveJournal or Google.…In this one, I'll show you a system that's much more complete allowing them to…log in with their Facebook and Twitter accounts as well, but along with that…completeness comes quite a bit of complexity, and it requires that you join a…commercial site named Janrain.…But let's get going.…The module we will be using is called Janrain Engage, there used to be two…competing modules and unfortunately the one that failed is at…drupal.org/project/janrain.…
The good news is that there is a link to the new one, just click on Janrain…Engage (formerly RPX) or you can go there directly at drupal.org/project/rpx.…If we scroll down, we see a list of supported networks.…It's quite a long list and one of them is OpenID. so you could use this as a…replacement for Drupal's core OpenID mModule if you wanted to go that way.…
