About this extension

This extension, sreg.extension.inc, implements the OpenID Simple Registration Extension. It basically allows you to specify details which you normally provide when you register for web sites (such as your name and e-mail address), and have SimpleID provide them automatically to web sites which request them.

Installing and uninstalling

This extension is bundled with the default SimpleID installation. From version 0.5, this version is enabled automatically.

To uninstall this extension, see Installing and uninstalling extensions.
