Simple OpenID plugin

Instead of giving an username, email and website to comment on a post, this plugin enables the use of an OpenID account to add the comment.

Installation is pretty straightforward, but there are several things you need to take care of:

  • Put the openid/ folder in your wp-content/plugins/ folder
  • Make sure the wp-content/ folder is writable. The plugin creates a tmp/ folder upon first time activation. Alternatively, you can create this folder by hand and make it writable. You can use the chmod 766 command.
  • In your comments.php template add these two functions: <?php oid_add_inputbox(); ?> and <?php oid_show_logo(); ?>
  • Activate the plugin in the plugin management panel of your WordPress installation.
