WordPress OpenID plugin: Now providing

I was very pleased to find out today that the Word­Press OpenID plu­g­in was updat­ed. Among some gen­er­al fix­es, the newest ver­sion sup­ports act­ing as an OpenID provider. In oth­er words, I can use my “andrews​ki​.net” domain to sign in to any OpenID-enabled web­sites, of which there are plen­ty. I can then man­age my authen­ti­ca­tions with­in my Word­Press set­tings. All very good stuff.

(One heads-up: the OpenID plu­g­in encour­ages you to install the XRDS-Sim­ple plu­g­in. The descrip­tion is there, but I missed it.)

My gen­er­al goal is to make my domain as use­ful as pos­si­ble, and this is def­i­nite­ly a big step.
