I'm using example at http://rpxwiki.com/Example-PHP-code (RPXNow.com) to let users to login.
The issue is that when use logged into the system, the basic information is not passed to the site.
e.g. check below:
http://www.totallyfuzzy.net/ourtube/rpx_demo.php  here the basic information is not passed in and we don't see user details.

let me know if I need to correct anything at http://rpxwiki.com/Example-PHP-code or any other sample code would be fine.

Please post this script on your site, and post a link to it here.  You may want to remove it later, but it would be helpful to see how your server and PHP are configured.  Thanks, ~Ray

OK, it looks like you have JSON, and that's good.  I tried the link above and clicked "Yahoo" - it went to Yahoo and put up my ID to ask for my password, so that part appears to be working.  I did not complete the signin -- no offense, but I am not interested in actually signing in to a foreign site through one of my online accounts.

Maybe if you post the code you are using, we can show you how to add some debugging language.

SimonHowald: Thanks very much for the points. I may not really deserve them since I did not actually answer the question, but I'll try to make it up to you someday on another question.  Best regards, ~Ray
