Despite the art looking similar on the Blog, nothing screams "I'm not really a part of StackExchange" than the lack of OpenID. Why can't I use it to post instead of handing over my Name/Email every time I'd want to post?

  • Well we do try to make it as easy as possible to post any blog posts, but there should be a threshold

  • Though granted, with OpenID it would allow users to write a blog post, but it would still need the Editors to publish their posts

    @Ivo I'm unsure if Nick's talking about posting comments here or actually posting content to the blargh. Nick, can you clarify?

    @Mana, comments initially (as that's what I would do most often) but ultimately either.

Putting aside the technical limitations listed by Rebecca, Arqade's blog has been deprecated and is now only available in a read-only mode for historical purposes, so having Open ID support is a bit of a moot point at this stage.

For future reference, here's the link: Arqade's Community Blog.


I would very much like OpenID support on the blog. I spent a considerable amount of time researching options here. Existing plugins are either broken or actually manage to create a worse experience for the user instead of a better one.

If I (or anyone) can find a decent, working option, I will happily set it up.

    If only there were websites where programmers and web developers could ask programming and webdev questions :) Jan 27, 2012 at 20:11
  • Stack Overflow is not a place to say "I need an OpenId plugin for WordPress - ready, set, start coding!" (; Jan 27, 2012 at 20:16

Rebecca can answer, but OpenID is difficult to integrate with WordPress for some reason.
