Let us know, eh? Rock on!
Will do 🙂
This plugin might need to be upgraded to work with 0.4.x...
@julian What does that mean? This is something I'm REALLY looking at and almost a make or break feature.
@shinyidol just meas the plugin dev needs to change something in the plugin for it to work with the latest version of nodebb, raise an issue over on github to update it.
Any updates on this? I really want to use NodeDB but this makes it pretty much useless for me. :l
@Jurjee Hey, I have time to kill, I'll take a look.
Wow, that was fast! Thank you very much!
@julian tried updating to this and causing my nodebb instance to stop. ideas?
@shinyidol the pull request Julian submitted hasn't been committed yet, so it's technically not fixed yet. You've got two options, you can either wait until the plugin developer accepts the changes, or you can fork the plugin and make the changes manually to your forked version. I'm not sure if there's an unwritten rule when it comes to taking over inactive plugins. As the old plugin would still exist.
@a_5mith yeah. i did a fork and manually updated and it didn't work
I haven't tried it myself but will check it out later today to see if it does work for me.
Only the first one (#6) is required, #7 is just a renaming of the module for cosmetic purposes.
You can try to install my fork by running the following:
$ npm install git+https://github.com/julianlam/nodebb-plugin-openid-steam.git
If at a late date you want to uninstall it:
npm unl nodebb-plugin-openid-steam, or just remove it from the ACP.
@julian appreciate the help, but not working. Running 0.43. Removed all previous versions. Then ran the npm command above. Clicking on Steam still takes to 404 error.
@shinyidol Just want to confirm it is installed:
npm ls nodebb-plugin-openid-steam?
@julian i think so.
[email protected]:~/nodebb# npm ls nodebb-plugin-openid-steam
[email protected] /root/nodebb

@shinyidol Ugh, sorry about that, silly mistake. Please re-install.
When you re-install and run
npm ls on that package again, the git hash should be:
@julian Well that got the 404 resolved. i was able to add my steam key and save it. but no additional login option becomes available.
@shinyidol Once you save the steam key, a restart is required to load the new values into NodeBB
@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...
