  1. Howdy,

    I just downloaded v0.1, and the has created by the MicroID plugin seems to be different to the one generated by ClaimID. The emails and the URL are the same. Any ideas?


  2. Hey Jeremy,

    The MicroID is comprised of the URL as defined in your WordPress configuration and your Email. The hash is very sensitive to casing as well as additional “/” characters (or lack of).

    Make sure the URL you enter into ClaimID is exactly the same as configured in your blog’s configuration.

    In any way, Don’t be alarmed if its not the same as in ClaimID. The ClaimID ninjas are smart enough to try a couple of way of claiming your blog (with and without a trailing slash). Try to verify it and see if it works. If it doesn’t ping me again.
