OpenID

One of the biggest barriers to the use of the old forum was the fact that it required yet another username and password. With the advent of openID - you now don't need yet another login.  Going forward, all authentication on this site will be openID enabled.  If you still want to create a username & password for the site, you can, and add an openID later if you want.  You probably already have an openID - Yahoo ID's have been openID enabled since 2008. Sounds great, how do I use it? First, find your provider's openID URL: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/OpenID#OpenID_Providers or http://openid.net/get-an-openid/ Next, paste the URL for your chosen provider into the openID box on our new site.  You'll be brought to a page hosted by your openID provider, and asked to authorize the logon.  Once you do - you're in!  We never see your password - you don't need to make a new account on this site, and we get reliable authentication.

WordPress

As you may have noticed, the EIAA site is now using WordPress. WordPress was selected because it's being actively developed, it's free, and it's just enough of a content management system to be highly usable, and highly manageable. It also has a ton of plugins that will allow us to adapt the site to our needs fairly easily.
