[Solved] [GitHub Bug #907] OpenID broken for months

Even on this site.

I want to draw attention to GitHub Bug #907

Many of us are reliant on openid, this seem to be a conflict with recent authentication code.

It is not to do with the lightopenid code as far as I cans see. I have used the existing version and the curl version and they both validate (some minor changes are need for shared hosting but that is expected).

I wonder if it is to do with the postback.

grep is your friend.

  • Meanwhile I'm looking into this, if it wasn't so elusive I would have fixed it by now. I'm going to go back a few versions, becuase I don't think the plugin code has changed much.

    I recommended in the next update that you use the curl version of LightOpenID, there is no good reason to use f* based transfers. There is a little modification that makes is shared hosting friendly.

    I think the twitter, or another authenticator used curl for everything except to get the credentials, bit of a waste.

    grep is your friend.

  • Solved. See GitHub Bug #907

    Once openid is validated. It needs to be carried over the various stages. Otherwise you end up going round in circles, it can't be validated twice.

    grep is your friend.

  • @Lincoln can you put [solution] in the title. Thanks
