[Plugin: OpenID v3.3.2] Can't use root URL to comment on Blogger (8 posts)

    I am using OpenID plugin v3.3.2 & XRDS-Simple v1.0.

    My problem is I can't comments on Blogger using my OpenID using my blog root URL - http://1-million-dollar-blog.com/. The error message is "Your OpenID credentials could not be verified"

    However, it works on other site such as

    and other site using disquss plugin.

    For your information, I am the only user at my blog & set my user ID to be used when I point to root URL.

    I really appreciate help on my problem.

    Same problem, getting OpenID error when trying to authenticate with my single user URL http://ranno.eu.

    WP 2.9.2, OpenID 3.3.2, XRDS-Simple 1.0, PHP 5.2.12

    Same versions (except PHP 5.2.6) and same problem. I can't use the blog root URL, OR the specific author URL

    I was able to post to Blogger by disabling the XRDS-Simple plugin. I am using OpenID delegation. XRDS-Simple is listed as required for the "OpenID Provider and some features of the OpenID Consumer". Does anybody know if this is necessary when you're using OpenID delegation?

    I am having a similar problem where I can't login to anything at all using my OpenID: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/380808?replies=1

    So far only using the author specific URL is working for me, even when I'm the admin. When I try to use my main site URL as an openid, it simply doesn't work (it says "could not find OpenID server at [blog root url]")

    I used to have this in my header.php file:

    <link rel="openid2.provider" href="http://www.teddy-o-ted.com/openid/server" />
    <link rel="openid2.local_id" href="http://www.teddy-o-ted.com" />
    <link rel="openid.server" href="http://www.teddy-o-ted.com/openid/server" />
    <link rel="openid.delegate" href="http://www.teddy-o-ted.com" />

    But then it also screws up the author OpenID authentication.

    Thanks, setnes! Deactivating the XRDS-Simple plugin fixed my OpenId authentication problems. I'm using the author URL as my OpenId.

    XRDS-Simple (the spec, not the WP plugin) was deprecated in early 2009 and was replaced with XRD 1.0:

    To fix this OpenId plugin properly, you would correct the XRDS discovery headers with the new XRD.
