Customizing sign-in providers

Hi at all, I see that at the registration of a new user is possible to sign in with differents accounts. I'd need to know where i found this option to activate on my site and if there's a way to obtain also other social accounts in the list that actually there is. Thank You

You are looking for the "Login provider" settings page:

The list is hard-coded; to add more, you probably need to dive into the code.

Foursquare login is not in askbot, you'll need to create it on your own.

Yes i know and i've seen that there is not. Now i know how to activate the other but not how to create an other.

Surely i'll read how and i try but may be that someone can post here an example of modding to integer other providers :)
