Facebook's OpenID Support: Much Improved!

I decided to give linking my Facebook account to my OpenID delegate page another go last night.

Lo and behold, it still didn't work. But this time, I got a useful error message!

After some Googling and reading, I finally figured out that I needed to add the following two lines to the source of my delegate page. Now I have a delegate page that works with OpenID 1.1 and OpenID 2.0.


Once I got that, I was able to link Facebook to my MyOpenID account. The weird logging in and out issues I reported a couple of weeks ago also seem to be resolved.

<html>    <head>        <!-- OpenID 2.0 delegate information -->        <link rel="openid2.provider" href="" />        <link rel="openid2.local_id" href="" />        <!-- OpenID 1.1 delegate information -->        <link rel="openid.server" href="" />        <link rel="openid.delegate" href="" />    </head>    <body>    </body></html>
