The functionality of this plugin as been included in the WordPress OpenID
plugin. This plugin is no longer supported and will not be updated in the
OpenID is an open standard that lets you sign in to other sites on the Web
using little more than your blog URL. This means less usernames and passwords
to remember and less time spent signing up for new sites. WordPress.com
recently added support for OpenID, and this plugin allows you to mimick
that functionality on your own installation of WordPress by delegating to a
third party OpenID Provider.
More information about OpenID delegation can be found at Sam Ruby’s excellent
blog entry. Of course this can all be done manually, but using a plugin
provides the benefit of not messing with the code and more importantly
persistence through theme changes.
This plugin follows the standard WordPress installation method:
- Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
- Start adding delegates through the ‘Yadis’ section of the ‘Options’ menu
- Does this plugin provide a full OpenID provider?
- How do I get help if I have a problem?
Please direct support questions to the “Plugins and Hacks” section of the
WordPress.org Support Forum. Just make sure and include the tag ‘yadis’,
so that I’ll see your post.
