Logging in using OpenID


I have been reading all these little rave references to OpenID. I believe I read that LQ recognizes it, but I haven't been able to find that reference now. I decided that as an early adopter, I'd better get mine registered early since my preferred user id is one that could easily be taken if I wait too long.

Anyway, I went to a registration page, and it gave me a list of servers that would host my URI. I selected myopenid.com and went thru the registration process. I got an email asking me to confirm rickh.myopenid.com ... which I did.

I then deleted my cookies, so LQ wouldn't recognize me, and it didn't. My understanding is that if LQ recognizes OpenID, I should no longer have to enter a password, but I tried both the userid rickh and rickh.myuserid.com ... and neither would let me in without my old password.

Will this process only work on new sites at which I am not already registered, or am I doing something wrong?

Hmmm! Maybe I remembered wrong about LQ accepting OpenID. I think I successfully logged into another site, but the same technique doesn't work here.

Still experimenting. I found the LQ reference. It says that LQWiki should accept OpenID. I went there and entered https://rickh.myopenid.com as my userid, and it wouldn't let me in.

The reference you recall is probably: http://jeremy.linuxquestions.org/blo...9/2750044.html

And I have moved this to LQ Suggestions and Feedback so that Jeremy can see it.

The LQ Wiki OpenID rollout should happen later this week. Based on that we will evaluate becoming both a provider and an accepter at the main LQ site.

...and, indeed it works. I think you might make the "Login using OpenID" link a little bigger, or more obvious somehow. Took me a bit to figure out that I couldn't use the normal login window.

OTOH, other people might be more astute. Once we are all a little more familiar with the OpenID process, it'll be easier.

If I fill out my LQ username, I get

Return to Main Page.
So, what do I need to do to convert my user account to an OpenID URL?

Cheers, Leon.

A clarification. LQ isn't an OpenID provider. That convert link lets you switch from using an LQ Wiki account to an OpenID, while keeping all your changes. You still need to have an existing OpenID URL though. We are looking into becoming a provider, but have no ETA at this time.

I'm happy to announce that my Blog now also supports OpenID.
