Gravatar and wordpress integration; a lightweight membership system for real estate?


On the dockerhub profile page, there was an option to assign a gravatar by specifying the email address handle (that implies the gravatar image set).

we see that one logs into the gravatar site itself using a wordpress IDP account:

what we are doing here is asking the question: so what if you do not have a Rapattoni magic (style) membership system? What if you membership system is merely a “membership plugin” to something one of two thousand small realty boards may necessarily have – such as an deployment of quickbooks?

If one wanted to build a lightweight membership plugin that could compete with a quickbooks membership module (which is little more than an address book for registered accounts of accounts payable (the users!), with some schema fields specific to real estate), could one be using the “web membership system”?

wqe can see what a modern web-centric membership system entails, when looking at features beyond the gravatar and the profile page. We can see the connections to “verified services, for example, for which we try out the linkedin integration:

Here we see that the oauth integration happens not only to requires a login to the linked in account, but the gravatar carries with the act of “connecting” across sites – something that goes beyond the oauth model. Note how the oauth integration ALSO allows for signup to the linkedIn service (should that necessary).

Of course, the kinds of older membership systems seen in US realty have no such feature set – despite realty being an entirely “networking business” – but a business that has resisted adopting the web technologies (for networking and membership) to date.

We also connected to facebook –which gave us a facebook login session obviously – similarly.

Then, we happened to opt for a goodread connection, too, which took us to its login page which happens to be facebook enabled (and an automatic goodreads session was thus created). This automatically completed most of the Oauth handshake, which we see back on the goodreads OP:

Since we have since writing the post got a bitcoin address, we can try adding it to the gravatar’s profile area for cyber currencies
