create new account using info from openid

Asked by nbv4

I have this installed and it's working fine, except for one thing. When I enter a new openid, it will create a new account, but it won't give it the username/email from the openid provider. It will just create a new account called "openiduser23" and with a blank email and no other account information. Is this by design or is it something that should be working but just isn't in my case?

The most likely case here is that the OpenID provider is not sending the email address or user name to you. If the provider doesn't send it, then django-openid-auth will set a blank email address and generate a user name.

Can you help with this problem?
