I wanted to log in to the Stack Exchange data explorer, but I found out that the login page does not list the SE's own OpenID login as option (manually entering the SE's OpenID URL worked).

  • @Jon: Thanks. It's no big deal as far as I'm concerned, I just thought I'd mention the inconsistency. But thanks for the link, I'll look into it.

  • No problem. It's inconsistent because the SEDE codebase is completely independent of the SE codebase.

waffles may decide it makes more sense to just update based on the Stack Exchange source, but if not I've gone ahead and added this option along with some other OpenID-related tweaks.

  • If it's deployed within 7 days the full bounty is yours :)

    @canon I've been a bit tied up with work, but I'm in the middle of adding various OAuth login options to Data Explorer, so Facebook will be added then. I don't have a firm estimation of when it'll be done, but hopefully it'll be pretty soon.
