OpenID for contributors only -- not for comments? (2 posts)

    I want to have the functionality from wp-openid for my contributors only when they log into the WordPress back-end. I do not want to have this functionality used for comments. Does anyone have any tips for disabling this?


    (You may ask why I don't want this functionality for comments. I have had a few people attempt to leave a comment on my site and include their WordPress.com or Blogger blog as their URL. When they try to submit the commit, it forwards them to Blogger or WordPress.com for them to log in. They do not know what OpenID is and think they have to login to my site to leave a comment. So they have tried a few different things and found that leaving out the URL means they don't have to login.)

    In version 3.2, you can simply delete all the code in [openid/comments.php] to make this work. Contributors can still use Open ID to access the backend, but Open ID is not utilized for visitors leaving comments. (I'm not sure when this approach started working, but I think that before 3.x there was not an [openid/comments.php] file.)
