With the launch of Social Sign-In, members of your Ning Network no longer need to create a password when joining your Ning Network.

 

A problem arises when your application prompts the member for their email address and password when generating an access token. Members who have joined your Ning Network using Social Sign-In haven't setup a password yet.

 

The current workaround is to ask members to setup a password using the profile settings page located at:

We are planning to support 3-legged OAuth, which is the redirection based "Grant permissions to the application" dialogs users are used to already. With that setup, applications will never need to deal with member passwords.

Is there a specific error code to test for so we know when to redirect users?

Hello! Due to the maintenance in the Ning systems, 500 errors might appear on some Ning Networks.It usually takes up to 20 minutes for our technical team to solve such issues. We do apologize for the inconveniences, but the maintenance works are necessary for stabilizing our systems and improving their functionality in future. Regards, Ning Team
