Ok, no big news. Just upgraded this blog to WordPress 2.1 and installed the OpenID plugin. So if you use OpenID you can leave comments by providing your OpenID. That’s it.
Okay let’s test this :) You just convinced me to get an openID
Nice. It’s interesting to see OpenId’s popularity grow of late. It would be great if more of the blogging platforms used it for instance (to join WordPress, Moveable Type & LiveJournal).
I must admit – this openid thing is rather great :)
Testing if I give both what happens ;)
I see… OpenID takes precedence.
I still feel not very comfortable with Open ID
Cool stuff. I wonder about the security on admin parts of application or if it is even applicatable for that.
@Matt1: Well, OpenID does only the authentication part, i.e. it verifies that you are the person you say you are. But it doesn’t do the authorization part, which is up to you to implement.
I am not a security expert, but I would say it is a bit more riskier if you use an external OpenID server. But else you face the same security risks as with a traditional approach.
Nice idea. Just trying.
Btw: like your blog about cake
hopefully this works….having problems using phpMyID posting to it….
okay, so I used verisign labs for that one….why does that work and not the phpMyID?
I’ve used phpMyID to log into simonwillison’s blog (among other things…) but I think WP is asking for something that phpMyID does not provide.
@moose: I am glad to hear that, thanks :)
@walker: Hm, no idea what the problem could be. Maybe a bug in the plug-in…
