@Brent and others - you do NOT have to enter your name and email address if you're using your OpenID. They'll get automatically provided from your OpenID profile, and filled in when you come back from authenticating there. And K2 bases your Gravatar image on your email address, I believe, so whether you enter the address yourself, or it comes from your OpenID profile, your Gravatar works either way (as you can see above). @Todd - regarding the malformed links - all the links come from the WP-OpenID plugin code. The plugin author will have to fix it. I'll have a look and report it to them if I get a chance, or you could let them know. ;-)

So do I need to put only my website info and not my name or mail? Is K2 smart enough to show my Gravatar if I don't?

I had exactly the same issue - any K2 based theme that allows ajax-commenting doesn't call the appropriate triggers that OpenID hooks into.

Hmmm ... maybe I don't need to provide anything besides my OpenID URL. It's late. I'm confused.

Your OpenID links are malformed. They look like this: You can see what's going on there with mismatched quotes.

Mike, the little icon is what indicates it's an OpenID. I don't know why both of your comments appear under different names. Check to make sure your profile is fully filled out at your OpenID provider. My blog asks your provider for your full name, email, and "nickname", and your OpenID profile is where those come from. But at least its working! :-)

[...] is now OpenID Enabled Josh Bancroft writes “I’ve been meaning to do it for a while, but I was spurred into action by a blog post by Aaron Hockley yesterday, and a fun Twitter ‘argument’ with him and Rick Turoczy of Silicon Florist fame, and I’ve finally gotten around to making it possible to post a comment here on using your OpenID.” [...]
