  • Matt, this plugin is supposed to get a WordPress ‘blog to accept, rather than to provide OpenIDs. Visit to learn how to get an OpenID, and look at for instructions on how to roll-your-own if you have your own domain.

    Aha! Thanks, oeconomist!

    I still can’t figure out how to use “my” URI (instead of as the name, but that’s hopefully solveable.

    And it’s nice to see some people still use the gramatically correct apostrophe before ‘blog.

    Unless you’re so hard-core that you’re going to code from scratch, you probably want to install phpMyID (though I suppose that you could also pull this off by forwarding).

    On the assumption that you installed phpMyID at, you’ll want to replace the openid.server and openid.delegate links in the head of with <link rel="openid.server" href="" /> and <link rel="openid.delegate" href="" />
