    access into ubuntu forums by SSO only

    the first time that I try to access on ubuntu forum, my request is switched on login by SSO.
    there is a way to avoid this?
    thanks in advance.

    That would be prior to July 2013. SSO login was introduced after a security breach of the forum in that month as one of a number of extra security measures.

    I remember the period when it was necessary to acces by SSo login.
    But after the first acces by SSO, everything was fine and I entered the forum with a simple login.that's fine.
    is all about.
    regards

    Before near the end of July 2013 - no SSO login.

    After July 2013 - SSO login only.

    Perhaps you are remembering the older launchpad login which was always an alternative to the ordinary vbulletin login and which was nothing to do with SSO. That was discontinued at the end of 2012 for various reasons.
