Hi There,
I have installed the OpenID plugin, but there is no documentation as to what I should enter as the OpenID Server, Delegate or XRDS Location.

I am guessing that the plugin will alow me to act as my own OpenID authentication server if I comment on OpenID enabled blogs, or allow others to authenticate themselves if commenting on my blog.

I haven't been able to find any tutorials or descriptions on how to set this plugin up, anywhere.

Thanks,
Dale

Hi!

Sadly this plugin is still very experimental in terms of official support. I for myself have not yet had the time to look into it.

I think the developer of the plugin is not active on the forums here. Maybe you can try to reach him via e-mail so that he can reply here?

His blog is http://www.cdatazone.org/ and I believe his mail is rrichards at php dot net...

Regards,
Garvin

This can't be! Grischa Brockhaus rewrote it nearly completely in the last few weeks. Did you try the current version(s)?

Uhm.. Did you try the newest version of the OpenID plugin?
I updated a lot on it and it is working (for me and other testers) flawlessly now.

Ooops, sorry! Mea culpa, it was old experience from July 2011. Re-check it now and I'll be back soon

Well that was not the question. I can't support stuff, you've changed..
Is it working the way it was delivered?

And why do you update the OpenID lib at all? I did already and patched it in order to make it work in a S9Y environment and servers not supporting urand (like mine). All that errors you name here I had, too, before I patched it..

If you update the php-openid lib, at least read the README.S9Y .. There is written, what to patch where and how. But it is not necessary anymore (as I did already).

Because I want to get plugin working

About your question - no, your version of OpenID plugin doesn't work, because it doesn't allow OpenID-login.

Add two strings into head I can (and I done) without plugins. Error messages are the same for not-patched version

Ah.. You are using the delegation only and have problms with that?
For that you don't need the php lib at all!

What is the difference between the working two lines you added by hand into the header and the two lines added by the plugin?

But you don't get that depreciation messages when you use the original plugin, right? This can't be, as they come with the new S9Y version only and I tested it on my testblog (running the latest) w/o any problems.

update:
in example:
Code: Select all
[Thu Apr 05 07:23:38 2012] [error] [client 85.249.33.17] PHP Warning:  Call-time pass-by-reference has been deprecated in ...\\plugins\\serendipity_event_openid\\PHP-openid\\Auth\\OpenID\\Consumer.php on line 1188


.. you would not get, if you use the lib that was patched by me (and is delivered with he plugin). This warning is thrown, when you use the fresh downloaded lib w/o my patches.

.. oh.. All of these warnings are the one I patched! :lol: So please: Uninstall the plugin, remove the files from your installation and reinstall. This is not the plugin, that is delivered by Spartacus.

No. I tried

* OpenID login
* With unpatched version (your...) before any modifications

And did not get it working.

I can repeat my yesterday games and show you extraction from error-log, if you want

Yey, I want.. :)

What exactly do you mean with "openid login was not working"? Did you configure your personal openid url in your users settings?
