I like the idea of SSO (Single Sign On) - fewer login credentials to manage - not to mention how cool FOSSverse sounds. Perhaps, when you get that far, you could create a landing page on that URL with links to everything FOSS (or change the URL to FOSSverse for everything FOSS) - just thinking off the top of my head - could be more bother/expense than it’s worth.
I have created an account on It´s FOSS and it went well.
Still I have two questions reagrding its use:
I can log in by clicking on the “Membership” button but I need to consult my e-mail account for the “secure login link” I got. That I understand so far.
But after logging out and trying to log in again after a few hours I needed a new link, which I also got.
Yet in the e-mail it says: “For your security, the link will expire in 24 hours time”. So I thought I could use the old link again but each link seems to be valid for one login only.
Is that correct
After logging in to It´s Foss I clicked on the community button but wasn´t logged in to the forum.
You said: “The changes have not been made yet”. Once the new login system is implemented, would the way I tried to do it be the correct one
The membership accounts on It’s FOSS don’t have a password system. You log in via the link sent in the mail.
If you log out you need a new login link. If you try to log in on another browser or device while still being logged in on other, you’ll need a new login link.
Each link is valid for a single login within 24 hours.
Once the new system is implemented, you’ll still have to click on the login button in the community forum. If you are already logged into IF account at the time, you are immediately logged in to the forum as well. Otherwise, you’ll be taken to the login option/landing page on It’s FOSS website, you login there and come back to forum to be logged in.
All this will be more clear when the new system is in place this Saturday.
It worked for me, but when I clicked on “Sign in to itsFOSS” in my email it started waterfox instead of firefox. Waterfox is my default browser… so OK
If I copy and past the URL into firefox, I obviously get firefox.
