This post is used to test for comments using OpenID.
And as you can see, comments can now be posted using OpenID. Registrations has been disabled. Therefore, to post comments here, you can either:
- Be a LiveJournal user – just select LiveJournal on the dropdown list, type just your LJ username in the box, enter your comments and hit submit. You’ll be redirected to your LJ site to confirm the action. If you’re not logged in at LJ just enter your user/password on top as usual to login first. Be sure to check the URL to avoid phishes!
- Be an OpenID user – Register with any OpenID site such as http://www.myopenid.com/ to get an OpenID. Then, select Other OpenID on the dropdown, type your OpenID identity in the box and enter your comments.
- Be a Xen user – means ask me to create an account for you so that you can login to this site as a user. Once you’re logged in you’ll be able to post comments!
The bad points about this plugin are that it is theme-specific: you gotta know how to modify your theme to enable this plugin. Also it’s just for comments, so I can’t grant access on post-levels to OpenID users; to view my protected posts you’ll have to get an account with me like in Option 3 above…
