Support » Plugins » WP-OpenID and reCAPTCHA: Part 2

  • Hey wnorris, I don’t know if you remember when we talked about this a while ago, but how have things progressed since then? You mentioned incorporating support for OpenID 2.0 providers which should fix the problem (For those using those providers of course), did you? I’m just wondering because I happen to be the developer for the official reCAPTCHA plugin now (You can find RC6 of version 2.8 here, I’m still waiting for approval to host it here).

    I’m wondering if there’s anything I can do on my side to make things work, though like you mentioned most plugins look inside the $_POST variable and it seems like only the plugin who gets to access it first, works. Let me know if you have any ideas, I’d be glad to ‘fix’ this plugin if there’s a reasonable fix available.

  • I just ran into this issue when launching my new blog. I just want to say thanks for jumping in to work on this issue!

    @philosopher.sam: This problem has been fixed in the latest revision of WP-OpenID which you can only get from the Subversion repository from or you can get the development version from

    @blaenkdenum: I have just downloaded the “Development Version” from your link above and I am still having issues with reCAPTCHA. It goes to and then it fails complaining of an incorrect CAPTCHA.

    Do you have a fix for this?

    The “Development Version” on isn’t up to date. You’d need to pull from the DiSo subversion repository (the other link he gave).

    Thanks. It works… sometimes. It errors every other time throwing this error on the page (

    Error processing OpenID request
    The request was not a valid OpenID request. While processing the request, the following error occurred: return_to u'' not under trust_root u''

    Is this a familiar problem?

    Second time I try it goes to a page with 5 PHP warnings (my blog), then, more PHP warnings (my blog), and then the comment gets posted.
