This doesn't appear to be a duplicate of any of the other openid questions here. When I try to log in using my yahoo openid on any of the new sites (which worked before on stackoverflow), it seems to be working until the redirect to "https://superuser.com/users/authenticate/?token=AS..." which is just an empty page and nothing more happens after that.

Tried in FF3 and IE6, same results on meta, superuser, and serverfault.

using myopenid works.


I am also having problems with logging in using Yahoo. I am getting the following error:

Unable to log in with your OpenID provider:

failed to authenticate, returning Failed. Please ensure your identifier is correct and try again.

I have tried different browsers, and have successfully logged into other OpenId sites (meta being one of them) but cannot log into stackoverflow.

Any suggestions?

  • This has happened to me in the past. I think the solution for me was to just try the next day (-_-) – tj111 Jul 21 '09 at 17:13
  • Or add an alternate OpenID for login? – KTC Aug 4 '09 at 18:53

I had a SO user contact me earlier, saying that they had forgotten (their word) their openid, which turned out to be a yahoo mail (and no: I don't go around giving out opendids on request, before anyone asks).

I wonder if in fact this was related? i.e. it simpy wasn't working. I'll be interested to find out.


There have been intermittent issues with Yahoo OpenIDs in the past but nothing systemic.


FWIW, I haven't had a problem. It may be intermittent.


I'm getting this error every time:

This page has expired, go back to the original page and please try again.

Oddly, I'm apparently still logged in here on meta, but I can't log in to SO.
