    I've just looked at the new Google Friend Connect plugin for Wordpress and its very cool. Userdata actually gets registered in your Wordpress user database like facebook connect.

    It needs a few simple modifications for Mu but its much simpler than the sociable plugin for facebook connect.

    The down side of this plugin compared to facebook is it allows people to login through their yahoo accounts which opens it up spammers.

    Maybe add the following after line 80 of the server_code.php file:

    update_usermeta( $wpid, 'wp_1_capabilities', array('subscriber'=>true) );
    update_usermeta( $wpid, 'primary_blog', 1 );
    update_usermeta( $wpid, 'source_domain', $current_site->domain );

    Here are some links:

    I am going to add this but not sure where to put rpc_relay and canvas files for individual blogs of WPMU. It would be great if anyone has tried Google Friend Connect with WordpressMU installation and like to share on this forum.

    Anyone with an answer from kavitamm (and me)?

    I've just tried to setup my account, but I have no idea: where should we put these two files?

    I've already tried on /, /wp-content/ and /wp-content/blogs.dir/{blogid}/ without luck.

    Nothing new on this? I'm also looking for a Wordpress MU integration with GFC.

    I thing that you just need to put the 2 files in the root. At least... Google's verification worked for me, but I've just started and I didn't have time yet to go deeper ;)
