IP.board 4 is coming and the dev team of Invisionpower expose more and more new features. One of the most interesting is the ability to allow multi-domain SSO through IPS.connect. This is one of the most wanted features for IPBWI for WordPress and here are my thoughts about it:
Normally, multi-domain SSO isn’t wanted due to security policies of the browser developers (see same-origin-policy).
IP.board 4 now introduces another way which allows multi-domain-login via redirects. I’d assume they make a handshake, some database queries and on success, redirect the user with a positive one-time hash key back to the original site.
And here comes IPBWI: I’ll take a closer look on that feature once it’s released, to allow this SSO tech through IPBWI, too. Additionally, I’ll implement that into IPBWI for WordPress, too.
So it may take a few weeks after IP.board 4 release to make it stable and robust, but I will adapt that feature, too.
And if someone is wondering wether you’ll need a full new license for IPBWI 4 (which will be a new major version number corresponding with IP.board 4), I can say: no. You may renew your license for 29 bucks to get the latest update, but you are not required to update and if you are still having an active license, you don’t need to pay any extra charge for the new major version.
We’re on vacation from 28th of july 2013 until 04th of august 2013. For this time, there is no support or license creation available.
I’m proud to announce a new free and opensource WordPress plugin allowing payments with major creditcards (worldwide) and ELV (German Users only). Sticking together with Paymill, the Paymill for WordPress plugin allows your customers pay without getting redirect to a payment gateway site and no need of account registration – I don’t like this “register an account to pay with credit card” way.
The plugin is documented in English and German and currently hooks into WooCommerce and ShopPlugin. Additionally, the plugin provides a simple but independent payment form. Until end of july, support for Magic Members will be implemented.
Feel free to try it out – Paymill offers a free test mode which allows unlimited testing. When going live, there is no recurrent charge – just a small fee per payment.
I’d like to announce that the IPBWI FAQ was translated from Anja Skrba into Croatian for free to help people from Former Yugoslav Republics: Serbia, Montenegro, Croatia, Slovenia, Macedonia, Bosnia and Herzegovina. This should make it more people some easier to get access to free SSO technology. Thank you Anja, for your great work! As I don’t speak a single word Croatian, please note that I can not give any guarantee or validation for the information within that translation.
