Implement ONLY Open id and not the hybrid (openid + oauth) extension

Hi -

Looks like implementing the hybrid Open id + OAuth extension forces the user to see two Yahoo screens all the time- first one to login and the second one to provide permission to share data. Does Yahoo support only the Open ID method, which would be more appropriate for supporting Y! OID in a typical "sign in" user flow? Any URLs would be greatly appreciated.

  • Hi Evan,

    Dropping the OAuth extension in your OpenID request will not prompt
    user for password if the user is signed in already.

    However, because we don't support the OpenID checkid_immediate mode,
    user still has to see the permission screen.
