Bear with me...

  1. I went to sign into mechanics pre-beta, but couldn't because it couldn't associate the new url of Google Profile OpenId (profiles.google.com), with the 'old' one on Area51 (www.google.com/profiles)
  2. So I switched/updated my OpenId on Area51, and managed to sign in to mechanics - but the system could only automatically associate me with Area51.
  3. That seemed pretty normal to me - they both use the new url.
  4. However, now on all the other sites where I have accounts, I only see Area51 and mechanics under accounts.

I can fiddle all of this manually, but I figured it might be useful for devs to have something to look at, if there's anything that needs fixing.

Login with Google Profiles identifier no longer working, new sites do not associate automatically

But, you may need to clear associations and re-associate to re-match the changed sites.

  • OK, thanks. I'll have a look. Edit: It worked!
