On any blog entry you'll see the following text near the Comments form:
Once you click Sign In you'll see this cool new sign-in screen with multiple Open ID providers.Sign in to comment using AOL/AIM, Yahoo, Movable Type, WordPress, LiveJournal, OpenID, or Vox. Or comment anonymously.
If I click on Yahoo for instance, you'll see this screen:
Some of these plugins do have further requirements to get it to work.
The Yahoo! plugin requirements:
- Movable Type 4.2
- Crypt::SSLeay Perl Module
- Movable Type version 4.0 or above.
- Digest::SHA1 Perl module. Run mt-check.cgi for information on how to obtain it.
Whenever I have the MyBlogLog widget enabled, it conflicts with Movable Type's " body onload" command. i.e. my blog has this in the HTML code:
<body id="mt-blog" class="mt-entry-archive layout-wtt" onload="mtEntryOnLoad()">
For some reason MyBlogLog overrides or conflicts with Movable Type's onload command. Technically, it's an Internet Explorer 7 bug and not MyBlogLog's fault. Still, MyBlogLog is used on a lot of Movable Type blogs and they should offer an alternative method. I should point out that FireFox and Opera can see the "Sign in" message just fine. So it's only IE7. I think IE6 and earlier work but haven't tested it.
Well, enjoy the new login features. I haven't tested all of them yet (WordPress & Yahoo in particular) so feel free to post a comment to test this.
And if you're also running MT4 and are interested in enabling comments from AOL/AIM, Yahoo, Movable Type, WordPress, LiveJournal, OpenID, or Vox users, go download the following MT 4 plugins:
