[resolved] [Plugin: WP-OpenID] FEATURE REQUEST: OpenID w/ email comments (2 posts)

    There are many plugins and WP features that take advantage of the email address of its commenters, such as Gravatars. Would it be possible for WP-OpenID to attach the email address of a confirmed OpenID user? There are two options to this feature request:

    a, the ideal solution:
    - Get the email address of all OpenID users and add it into the comment_author_email field of the database.

    b, the less-than-ideal, but still okay solution:
    - Any user that has a WordPress account at that certain website will have their email address added to any comment made with the openid they have associated with their wordpress account.

    Just a suggestion that would help sustain many commenting plugins such as Subscribe to Comments, Gravatar, Retaggr, and many many more.

    I believe that is currently fixed in trunk, and so should be in the next release. For what it's worth, it was just an oversight, not an intentional thing.
