I'm hoping Phil will see this post. Userplane has a new way of intergrating it's products. Can you let me know if these simple steps are possible with Ning?
Single Sign-On is very simple to understand – you pass a user’s identity through the embed code, and we provision their access and identity on-the-fly, based on the information we receive. “That sounds so insecure!” you say? Rest assured, we have a mechanism to prevent anyone from tampering with your information, and it’s actually quite simple.
You will be taking all of the information we require about a user, and building a query string (a query string is series of letters, numbers, and symbols, beginning with a question mark, that are attached to the end of website URLs). A sample of a query string is below:

We don't currently offer single sign-on. We may at some point in the future, but it's not something we support right now. I know that it sounds simple, but if you dig into that explanation a bit, it does requires a bit of expertise (and probably some ongoing support). It's something we've thought about, though. Just not something we've committed to doing yet.
Brilliant. I stand corrected. You don't have to use the API? Do you think it might break if someone updates their email address or other identifying data?
Please keep us updated on this. I would love to hear how it goes.
We did this on my network with a double sign-on as described in Devin's reply here...
To be clear, we didn't integrate User Plane, but another third-party app.
can you or do you know a developer that could integrate userplane into our network?
