When I try to use Google or Yahoo openid sign in I get this error.
I initially thought that it might be lack of ssl in python, but it appears (from a discussion of that problem on OSQA) that would stop Yahoo from working as well (and it works OK).
I know this is probably too little information to diagnose the problem with, but if anyone can give me suggestions on how to diagnose the problem it would help a lot.
Edited to add. I get a similar response (as shown in the url when I return to my site) to what I get from the same providers when I try logging into askbot.org with them.
I have debug = True, and the required authentication backend,
flickr gives a slightly different error: OpenID http://flickr.com/igraeme is invalid
Facebook gives the somewhat unhelp ful "There was some problem when connecting to Facebook..."
IN ALL cases I am able to login to the provider (if I am not already logged in there) and get directed back to my site.
The providers send back a response with res_id and a verified identity. The nonce matches the return to url,
Google can change your openid without a notice, what you can do is to sign in with some different method,then go to your profile and click "manage login methods", you'll get to the screen similar to the initial login screen, but there you can add/fix/remove your login methods.
If this does not work for you, then there must be some bug indeed or maybe something has changed on the google side (however I use google login all the time and it works for me).
edit: I'll test all the login methods shortly on the new installation and try to fix any issues, sorry for the troubles.
edit 2: I've tried all the current openid providers (note Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn are using OAuth protocol, which is different form OpenID) and have following results
I think I'll drop the login icons for those methods that patently do not work.
