OpenID-Enabled Comments

Thanks to a blog post by Alec Saunders, I found out about a lovely WordPress plugin that not only allows you to allow people to authenticate using their OpenID credentials in order to leave comments on your blog, but turns your WordPress blog into it’s own OpenID server! It does require a small modification to your templates as well, but it’s pretty straightforward. You can then use the OpenID Check tool to verify that your OpenID is working as expected.
