    We don't have such plugin yet, but I believe such plugin is possible. Contact us in helpdesk for quote.

    Let us know if this ever gets built... I'm sure I'm not the only one around here interested in this as a plugin.

    How wide-spread is OpenID? I don't know anyone using it these days.

    Are you using a Google, Yahoo, Flickr, MySpace, Facebook, Wordpress, Verisign or AOL account? If so, then you are using OpenID :)

    Yes, I have one account you mentioned -- does this mean I can use the same ID and password on other services (or account)? If so, why did I have to create my account on another service?

    Or are you saying I need to open an account in OpenID and it'll synch with all other services you mentioned?

    Sorry to ask all questions -- it's possible this is more popular among younger generation or other country.
