Bug in OpenID plugin for wordpress

Do you suffer the fact that you just updated your wordpress plugins, and openID in special, after which your wordpress becomes unusable? I had the same and here’s how to resolve..

Open wp-includes/user.php and at the line that says:

function get_usermeta( $user_id, $meta_key = ”) {

Just write a new function just above That says:

function get_user_meta( $user_id, $meta_key = ”) {
get_usermeta( $user_id, $meta_key) ;

Do the same with ‘delete_usermeta’ and ‘update_usermeta’ to complete the change.

This way the new call (wordpress 3.0 compatible) is also available in your 2.8 or 2.9 version of worpdress (Oh you are using an even older version? hope this will help, you should update anyways).

Hope this will help any of you who are suffering a white screen just after updating the openID (or any other) plugin in their wordpress
