I want to use OpenID to login to my self-hosted WordPress blog, as my host does not support SSL, and I feel a bit iffy about sending login data over the internet in the clear. VeriSign’s PIP OpenID service supports SSL and certificate-based logins, so I’d ideally like to use that.
I installed and configured the WP-OpenID plugin, and things seem to work as expected with one exception: the OpenID URL (in my case, it’s [username].pip.verisignlabs.com) overrides the existing website in my user profile.
This is a Bad Thing, as I don’t want to include this URL in comments I post. It’s not because the OpenID URL contains sensitive information (it doesn’t — there’s no publicly-viewable information there at all), but simply because I’d rather include a URL that points to my actual website, rather than to my OpenID URL.
Is there any way to setup WP-OpenID simply for logging in to the administrative interface of my blog? At the very least, is it possible to not have WP-OpenID override the website in my profile?
