Author Posts February 16, 2010 at 2:51 pm #449016 erikpaulsonMember Hi – When I use my wordpress blog as an OpenID provider to comment on a blog hosted by Blogger, my display name shows up as ‘blog’. Blogger says they use the DisplayName sent by the OpenID provider, and if the server doesn’t send one it derives one from the URL, which is why it comes up with ‘blog’. Is there any way for me to set the display name I’d like displayed? Going to http://erikpaulson.wordpress.com/wp-admin/options-general.php?page=openidserver only gives me an option to add or delete trusted sites. (Incidentally, OpenID only works for me when I use my blog’s CNAME, not the erikpaulson.wordpress.com address that WordPress says is my OpenID server) The blog I need help with is blog.unit1127.com.

Volunteers do not have any role to play in corporate policy decision making.
