I want to post a comment at someone's blog. The author doesn't allow anonymous commenting. I am offered the opportunity to log in using OpenID. Supposedly, as a StackExchange user, I have an OpenID. But I can't figure out how to use it to log in for the purposes of leaving a comment.
I found https://openid.stackexchange.com/ but that didn't help.
Here's what it looks like when I try to log in at the blog:
The blog is hosted at livejournal.
I filled out the form, and put
aparente001.myopenid.com in the first box that presented itself. (I got this idea from http://openid.net/start-using-your-openid/.) Then another box presented itself, with help text to put in a url, so I put in
https://openid.stackexchange.com (as advised at https://openid.stackexchange.com). Here's the error message I got:
Cannot Complete Login
Detected an attempt to send an assertion when the identifier (https://openid.stackexchange.com/) is not owned by the logged in user.
I have attempted to follow the helpful instructions kindly provided by @journeymangeek. I went to the Stack Exchange OpenID page, and clicked on "Use your own URL to log in". I copied the link provided on the second line, as Journeyman showed in the screenshot (the code that starts with
https://openid.stackexchange.com/user/). I filled out the comment form at livejournal. A step or two later, my
openid.stackexchange.com/user/etc code was auto-entered into a key input box. It was rejected as not being a link, so I inserted
https:// in the beginning. The submission did not get stuck; but I got a new error message:
naive_verify_failed_network: Could not contact ID provider to verify response.
Is this a problem at SE, OpenID, or livejournal? Is there anything I can do about it?
