[nodebb-plugin-sso-steam] Steam/OpenID register/login

  • @julian Thanks for the tips on installing the git version. Now the admin panel options work 😄

    @nanoVapor Is there a way to link existing accounts, eg Admins, to their steam account without having to reregister etc. It would be nice for existing users to link to their steam account, then use either their previously registered acc or their steam account for Auth/login. Sorry if this is already answered, and thanks for the Steam auth plugin, great job!

    @Radon If your steam email matches the email you used to previously register on NodeBB, then the accounts should automatically merge...

    I thought the steam api couldn't give you e-mail information as the API is public. I don't see any e-mail checking in the source for the plugin either. Not to mention the fact that my steam e-mail and my user e-mail are identical anyway ( Even if my node bb account e-mail wasn't confirmed at the time ).

    Mm... in that case, then it would be impossible at this point in time to detect the account association. At a later date, we may add in the ability to do so via the user profile page, though that is not currently a priority.

  • @julian Friend of mine managed to associate the steamID with his existing account by using redis-cli. I believe that all the editing could be done by the plugin author, it just needs to be involved a little more during the registration process and possibly add some items to the profile page to allow association. I don't think this is truly a NodeBB issue. Thanks for the reply though.

    Hi 😄
    Well, there are actually quite a few issues with this plugin. If you set your steam nick to an account name already existing on the forum, your account gets created successfully. The username:uid and userslug:uid tables, however, get updated aswell, making a click on the profile of the original account redirect to yours and making them unable to login. (See https://github.com/igorprado/nodebb-plugin-openid-steam/issues/9)
    Similarly, you can't register if your steam nickname contains special characters and what if you don't want to use the steam name you have at the moment? Some people change their steam name like their underwear.

    I tried changing it so you get redirected to a new page where you enter your username and E-Mail address if you log in via steam as a new user. However, I have absolutely no experience in JavaScript and I started playing around with NodeBB today, so I couldn't figure out how to add the template properly and how to redirect to that. (And no idea where to go further, too… I'm probably not the right guy for this job, yet)

    Another issue is the one @Radon mentioned earlier, where there is no way to link your steam account with your account.
    Maybe add a little button to the profile? (Should be possible with filter:posts.custom_profile_info, maybe?)
    And probably a similar button for unlinking (which admins should be able to turn off, I guess)

  • Hi everyone,

    I know it's been a long time, but I updated the plugin. Now it works with NodeBB 0.6.x.

    The official plugin is:

    I know it maybe remain a few problems with this plugin like special chars on steam nickname, I don't know how NodeBB is dealing with this. I'll try to keep a roadmap to this plugin.

    There are 2 plugins listed on NPM about nodebb steam plugin. One was depecrated in favor of the new plugin name. I'll try to update the README of this one. Is there anyway to put a warning message when users tries to install this plugin from NodeBB ACP? Maybe add a warning on package.json... Just a thought.

  • GNU/Linux Admin

    Woo hoo! 🙂

    Do both versions appear on the plugin list? If so, I can remove the older one for you.

  • Plugin & Theme Dev

    @julian I discovered within your emoji-plugin package.json the attribute nbbpm.index, is this working correctly? would solve that directly 😉 (if I understand that attribute).
    Btw: if it's a valid attribute the docs may like an update 😄
    Btw2: before updating I'd recommend to pull in my Pull request

  • GNU/Linux Admin

    Yes, that would work too, but I believe in this case that would remove the new entry, not the old 🙂

    Yes, they are. I already flagged the old one as deprecated, also updated the README pointing to the right one.

  • Hi, how to combine steam sso with simple auth?

  • good


  • Hi,

    Is it possible to keep user steam avatars on my server instead of asking steam every page loading ? Sometimes it makes pages to load realy long and even not showing the avatars at all.

  • Hi
    looks like this plugin not work in nodebb 0.7.x?

  • Unfortunately i don't have that much coding knowledge, but it would be great if someone could be able to update this to work with 0.8.x.
