I think the practice of using subdomains for each function of backdropcms.org is creating a usability issue in the form of the number of separate logins required.

Since being involved, I have had to create separate accounts at survey, events and forum.  Assuming people engaged with Backdrop may engage in all these ways, I would suggest having them all under the main domain could simplify matters for members.

Accepted answer

Normally using the same login credentials for multiple sites isn't a good idea, but since we're working towards a single sign-on solution for all Backdrop sites, I figure it's ok.

I've therefore setup the same username & password for myself for all Backdrop sites. And since I've saved each login in my browser, I now have my own poor-man's SSO solution for Backdrop 😁

At least until one of these is implemented:

For the record, I think it'd be more work to do this than to just get SSO working...

Thanks @bwpanda I wasn't aware that an SSO was on the way. That sounds like a good solution. I'm doing the same (i.e. single login)
