I currently login into the forum using gmail authentication. Today while I was login-in I was promptd with the message that Gmail will support open-login only till mid 2015. So todat I created a FAS-openID account with the same email ID and tried to log-in. The login worked fine but after that it is asking me to create a profile and when I gave my mail-id and screen name, it says that they are already taken. So how can I use my current profile (with gmail user ID) but use FAS-open ID as login method instead of GMAIL.

If you go to your profile by clicking on your name at the top, it'll show your name and picture underneath the menus. To the right of the picture you'll see two options (above your status), one for updating your profile, the second to manage your login methods.

If you use that feature you can add multiple log-in methods to your account. You should be able to link multiple login methods if you have them.
