OpenID and Yadis on Google Apps

Well I was reading up on how to easily set up OpenID on your blog or webpage via delegates. And I do happen to have an AOL ID lying around :) Considering that your AOL account can easily be your Open ID, I decided to set up www.vashisht.net as my own OpenID...

Problem no.1: Google Page Creator does not allow edit HTML. So... Create a basic HTML file and upload it. Then remove the HTML part of the name to make it look cleaner :)

Step 2: Upload a Yardis XRDF file so that I can actually log in

Step 3: Test via www.openidenabled.com... Success!!

Note that the way to construct the AOL Delegate URLs is a bit confusing: You have to replace the "screenname" in the delegate URL with your AOL ID but the not the one in the server URL...
<link rel="openid.server" href="https://api.screenname.aol.com/auth/openidServer">
<link rel="openid.delegate" href="http://openid.aol.com/ashishv1982">

One last step left, I have to enable comment via OpenID in my Blogger Options Pane and I am all set!
