It's not currently active on my site, I just set up a demo install where
people can see what it adds to the login page (http://exid.dancoulter.com/).
Both the OpenID and Flickr editions of the plugin are running on that blog.

I originally had use for the Flickr version of this plugin for an upcoming
community site for a Flickr group I'm in.  I wanted the other people to be
able to authenticate into WordPress with their Flickr user accounts.  Once I
got all the hooks figured out, it was pretty simple to port it to OpenID
(which I'm a pretty big fan of).

I run Wordpress OpenID Plugin+ in "unobtrusive mode", I think that is

My plugin is designed more for full users of WordPress, not for commenting.
I wanted to be able to make my WordPress installs consumers of OpenID for
their login system.
