Version: 2.1.11

Description: This is partly an announcement. I've added an OpenID support to PmWiki. See Cookbook.AuthUserOpenId.

OpenID is distrubuted Identity mechanism and it works great with enviroments like Wiki.

Doesn't matter if OpenID will get included in official distro, however I think future development should count on authentication methods like OpenID, Mictosoft Live ID or Google Authentication. In most cases you get a token from those services - not username/password.

Let me know, what are your ideas, I can implement these in OpenID CookBook module.

Excellent, thanks for the contribution!


I've got an error "return_to u'http://mysite.com/index.php?action=edit' not under trust_root u'[(approve links) edit diff]'" when I am trying to login using myopenid.com accaunt. What did I do wrong?

I've found a solution myself. I've setup $ScriptUrl in config.php and use code from the comments section in AuthUserOpenId.
