I'm trying to change my primary OpenID ( on my Super User account) from MyOpenID to Stack Exchange. Went over to my profile, clicked on "Change OpenID", and selected Login with Stack Exchange. Instead of logging in, I got the below error message:

Could Not Find Pending Authentication Request

We were unable to find the pending authentication request, and cannot resume login.

If you believe you encountered this message in error, please report it.

Trying to login again using StackExchage OpenID, I get only a "login" button, followed by "Page not found"

This error should be fixed now.

We had a settings kerfuffle, that basically broke all forms everywhere on openid.stackexchange.com. Our apologies.

  • thanks @Kevin, was able to change. May 23, 2011 at 1:44
  • So are stackexchange openids still able to be changed? I am accessing openid.stackexchange.com but I am unable to find this functionality?
