- I dont really know where to ask this, I tried asking on
answers.yahoo.com, but apparently you don't get responses unless your
asking about stupid crap. :)
So, here it is. Is there any way to authenticate to Yahoos user
database without using flckrs API? I have implemented a test system
using flckr's API and phpflickr, but it asks people to join flickr,
and prompts them to allow my site access to their photos the first
time they login. I dont want or need access to peoples flickr account.
I just want to be able to use Yahoo's user database so that people
don't have to create and remember yet another set of account details.
I tried messing around with the URL, but apparently something on
Yahoo's end needs to be configured if you want a response back to your
server. I need to at least get a yes/no, and if succesfully logged in
a username back.
If this was the wrong place to ask this, I am sorry, and would
appreciate a pointer to the 'right' place for this kind of question.
