I’ve now expanded this support to let anyone use to authorize an app even if your blog is hosted outside of If you host somewhere else, you’ll still be responsible for setting up posting, but having basic IndieAuth support can be useful if you want to connect your blog to tools that don’t need to post, like IndieWeb Ring or the wiki.

There are instructions on this help page for adding the appropriate HTML tags to your site.
