I'm trying to use my newly created stackexchange open id on:


But when I try to login I always get prompted for my user and password on the stackexchange site ( even if I was already logged in )

This message appears

And I can't use it.


Looks like they're borking discovery.

Try using a vanity id (which were added to work around this particular, somewhat common, relying party bug).

When logged into OpenID.SE, go to https://openid.stackexchange.com/user/edit and pick some short unique name for the second field (the overlay is "john.smith (optional)"; I use kevin.montrose, for example).

After saving, put https://openid.stackexchange.com/{your-vanity-id} into the login form at masterbranch; that should bypass discovery completely.
