Support » Plugins » Open ID plugin not working with WP 2.5

  • Resolved mndoci


    As mentioned in another post, my WP2.5 upgrade mostly went OK, but the WP-OpenID plugin doesn’t seem to be working properly. While the login window does show up, I can’t seem to login using that (it just comes back to the login window with no error messages).

    Any ideas?

  • Having the exact same problem. Page just refreshes, no error messages, can’t login.

    what version of the plugin are you running?

    Same problem, 2.1.7.

    Try it here:

    I am at 2.1.2

    mndoci — as can be seen here, WP2.5 wasn’t supported until version 2.1.5 of the plugin. You need to upgrade.

    Ptath — you’ll need to set php to display errors, or look in your PHP logs for what the error is. I can’t debug a blank screen.


    Thanks. Got used to automatic upgrade notices. Everything is up and running now. Perfect .. thanks

    I just upgraded to the latest version but I still get sent back to the login screen with no errors displayed. I’m running 2.1.8

    I seem to have the same issue. Running 2.5 and the 2.1.8 plugin. I have the same problem on multiple servers on different actual machines.

    I seem to have found the issue: logging in doesn’t work without http:// in front of the identifier. When I add http:// I can log in perfectly.

    is anyone else still having problems running WP 2.5 with WP-OpenID v2.18 ?

    I still get the behavior described in this thread (i.e. return to loginpage with no error messages, etc) even when using the full http://<myusername&gt; in the wp login screen.

    any ideas of a log, etc to look at to further diagnose ?

    Yes, I’m also having this problem. I activated this plugin (2.1.8) again to see if the problem had been resolved with any of the fixes applied to 2.5.1 and apparently it hasn’t. I’ve tried to rebuild the tables as per the plugin options, but it didn’t help. I’m not sure what else I can try.

    Same problem as everyone else is describing. It returns to the login page and doesn’t log the user in. MyOpenID account shows a successful login in the history, however. Please help! If this plugin doesn’t have support, is there another one out there that somebody could recommend that you’ve had success with?

    So upon further testing I discovered that this problem happens with certain Open ID providers ( and not others (Technorati). With Technorati I was getting the line 653 error as described here:

    I followed the recommended fix for that error and it worked, but I’m still coming up with the above described problem when using MyOpenID.
