This discussion is related to the Steam Profile addon.

I am interested in this plugin. Could you perhaps give some more details as your short description is definitely short. I would download it and try it out, but so much school work :(

Just general details

  • It's a pretty simple plugin. There's no configuration to speak of. How it works:

    1. You install the plugin
    2. You enable the plugin
    3. Your users have a link to connect their Steam account, when editing their profile
    4. The link initiates an OpenID authentication with Steam's OpenID authentication service
    5. If a valid authentication is made, the user's SteamID64 is saved, associated with their user meta data
    6. When the user's profile is viewed, a panel is displayed in the sidebar that displays bits of information from their Steam Community profile (name, avatar, link to Steam Community profile, top games)

    That's really all there is to it. If you have any recommendations for improvement, just let me know!
