This plugin, for Elgg 1.8+, adds a Persona login button to your Elgg site.

Persona is a simple authentication mechanism created by Mozilla, inspired by one-click authentication mechanisms like Facebook Connect and Twitter authentication. The difference is that Persona is designed to be decentralized, so that no company is able to track their users across the entire web. It's also super simple and beautifully designed. You can read more about Persona at:

To install:

  • Place the persona folder into your mod directory
  • Click "settings" on the Persona entry in your site administration and switch on authentication

Bug tracker: click the "code repository" link to your right.
