For those who didn’t work as given above

Your template may be incompatible, do below template Edit

Template Edit – Default templates

Blogger default template template (one from Blogger directory), can check compatibility by searching for below code. If it is there then OK, otherwise add this after <head> tag.

<b:include data='blog' name='all-head-content'/>

Template Edit – Other template users

Other templates users can repeat the step above. But I won’t recommend to add above code because Blogger adds other meta tags which is already present in your template. This may cause SEO issues. So add below code after <head>.

<link href='http://draft.blogger.com/openid-server.g' rel='openid.server'/>
<link href='http://www.bloggerhow.com' rel='openid.delegate'/>

Change the domain name to yours. Now your template is OpenID compatible.. Does it work for you? Give feedback..
