Me and my team now integrating Discourse into our website. We are using Profile-like system on it, where users can setup our site’s specific settings (e.g. their favorite football teams, preferred timezone and etc).
Discourse itself got pretty strong Profile system with messages, like counters and etc, but unfortunately it’s bound to Discourse sub-domain, so users ended-up with two different profiles in different places (not to mention two ‘log out’ buttons).
The result of this would be a website, with all user specific data on one page called “Profile”, say with two sections: ‘Site specific’ and ‘Discussions specific’, single Log-out link and not-confused users! On Discourse side, click on user avatar will send user to exact same ‘Profile’ page.
I hope that this feature can help to any website with it’s own user’s/profile’s system seamlessly integrate Discourse with SSO.
Thanks for attention!
