I was having problems getting this plugin (v1.03) to work on my MT 4.23 blog, so I went in and hacked it up a bit. It seems to work now. Here’s a diff of my changes to YahooOpenId/lib/MT/Auth/

 sub get_nickname {
>     my $class = shift;
     if( $url =~ m(^https?://[\w.]+)([^/]*)$) ||
>         $url =~ m(^*)$)
>     return 'Yahoo user';
>     $class->SUPER::get_nickname(@_);

Note: I added the second-to-last line (return ‘Yahoo user’;) in order to provide a better looking default in case there’s no match, as the default Yahoo OpenID URL is long enough to break my comments layout. And since Yahoo allows you to use your flickr URL as an OpenID, I added that in too. I’m not aware of other Yahoo OpenID formats.
