Other OpenID Users:
Besides Blogspot and WordPress.com, there are also fuckloads of OpenID providers. In fact, you might even already have more than a few OpenID while you still do not realize that you own 1 yet.
The picture below shows the several popular web services which are OpenID enabled and serve as OpenID provider to their users.
You might want to check out http://openid.net/get-an-openid/ to find out which other web service provider are providing OpenID to their users.
For those who are using OpenID from those OpenID providers like ClaimID, myOpenID, myID.net etc, I think it is not necessary for me to explain to you how to post comments in my blog using your OpenID anymore, as you are clearly know what OpenID is and you wouldn’t go and register for these kind of OpenID if you don’t know what is OpenID, right?
And to g33kz, if you already have a launchpad.net account, don’t tell me you don’t know that your launchpad account is an OpenID.
Does this ring a bell? 😛
Some people said the Launchpad OpenID is considered broken for some websites. But anyway, it is still an OpenID, right?
For those who using self hosted WordPress.org blog, please be noted that your URL do not have OpenID enabled by default. WordPress.com blogs and self hosted WordPress.org do have difference. If you are hosting your WordPress.org blog yourself, you need to install OpenID plugins to run an OpenID server system yourself, or you may delegate your URL to other OpenID provider using plugins or by edit your themes header codes like as below.
If you want to read the detail tutorial on how to delegate your self hosted WordPress.org blog to an OpenID provider, go and read this old article of mine. http://garfield.in/?p=685
Please also be noted that your Facebook and Twitter page/ID URL are not OpenID.
Although Facebook and Twitter do have the similar function like OpenID, where a lot websites also accept their type of authentication. But Facebook and Twitter are using a different format of authentication system underlay.
So if you try to use your Facebook or Twitter URL to post comment in my blog, they are not treated as OpenID, instead, you are treated as an anonymous commenter by the comment system.
Perhaps I might write about the difference between Facebook Connect, Twitter API and OpenID in the future, if I have the time to do so…
Anyway, if you want to try to use your OpenID to post comment here, you may do so in this article’s comment area.
But well, since I am treated as a public enemy, I don’t think this article can make any significant changes to my blog’s comments count anyway. Plus, not much people really read this blog anyway. 🙂
