  1. OXID eShop with version numbers < 4.3.0, please delete all files containing “openid” in their names and adept the following templates in order to hide the openID login:
    • out/basic/tpl/inc/cmp_login.tpl
    • out/basic/tpl/_right.tpl
    • out/basic/tpl/dyn/cmp_openidlogin_right.tpl
    • out/basic/tpl/user.tpl
  2. From OXID eShop version 4.3.0 on, it is possible to switch off the OpenID functionality via Admin panel => Master Settings => Core Settings => Settings => Shop frontend.
  3. Even better: update your installation to a present OXID eShop version.
