I have my site set up so I can log in using it as my openID. The log in works, however I have a problem on Blogger. My name shows up as "openid" instead of "radicalpi". The link to the profile is correct (, just not the nickname. If I use in place of my domain, the nickname shows up correctly. Is this a bug with Blogger, or is there something I should change on my end to make it function properly.

I have the following in the head section of my site's root:

<link rel="openid.server" href="">
<link rel="openid.delegate" href="">
<link rel="openid2.provider" href="">
<link rel="openid2.local_id" href="">
<meta http-equiv="X-XRDS-Location" content="">

This question came from our site for computer enthusiasts and power users.

This is not a solution, but a possible workaround: if you have a domain (and not a subdomain from blogger), you can create a subdomain (eg. and CNAME it to MyOpenID instead of using the HTML tags. See here. – André Paramés Jun 5 '11 at 19:53
Setting up a subdomain and setting a CNAME for it worked. As you said, not quite a solution, but it does fix the problem. – Chris Hendry Jun 6 '11 at 0:22
