OpenID identity server? (5 posts)

    When I go to LiveJournal to test out the openid identity provided, I get this error:

    no_identity_server: The provided URL doesn't declare its OpenID identity server.

    Any ideas? I have a sub-folder based install. Do you have to have a subdomain based one?

    Does livejournal do openID?

    Yes. I have many problems with the MU OpenID server too. I recommend using a delegation plugin instead to delegate your OpenID to a provider like

    Oh, and OpenID doesn't work if you set a static page as the front of your blog — it's a limitation of the is_home() function in WordPress.

    LJ had it's hand in creating OpenID. JeremyVisser, I thought about writing a delegation plugin myself. Are there any available now?

    I got it to work.
    If your plugin install doesn't work, get the OpenID delegation plugin, and set it to the server (if you don't have an account, get one there for the API key alone), like so:

    OpenID Server Url: <b>
      OpenID Delegate Server Url: <b>
      OpenID XRDS Url: <b>

    and drop it into your mu-plugins directory. Test it out with the validator, and it should work. I've used mine in a lot of places.
