I have created a bit of a mess with logins from various different services on my website and am working to consolidate things.
Currently, I have Disqus Comments, Discourse Forum, WordPress Users (for subscriptions/membership) and legacy users that login to both WordPress and Discourse through Patreon (OAuth).
Safe to say, it is all a bit messy.
My plan is to consolidate the comments into Discourse, but I want to consolidate the WP/Discourse users as best as possible. My gut tells me that I need to use WP as the SSO Provider because of the membership features that I’m using on the WP site, but overall I am definitely not sure. If I do that, users could sign in to read content on the main page and click to join the discussion and be good to go.
The documentation also recommends doing the opposite, but that seems to assume that Discourse is the main tool. Am I going to create problems for current Discourse users if I use WP?
Any pros/cons or suggestions here?
