I just tried installing WP-OpenID 2.1.8 on a WP 2.5.1 test blog at http://self-issued.info/mbjtest/ in preparation for adding it to my real blog. Unfortunately, when trying to use both i-name and URL OpenIDs, while I get to my OP fine, WP-OpenID ultimately tells me " We were unable to authenticate your OpenID".
Is where some additional package I need to install to make this work? Or is it possibly a problem with DreamHost not having the right PHP crypto libraries installed?
I transcript of the WP-OpenID plug-in stauts is below. You can contact me for more information at email@example.com. Thanks for any assistance that you can provide.
