Register to the Wiki?

Post by ezzetabi » 08 Feb 2013, 09:44

Sorry for the dumb question, but I am missing the (probably obvious) way.

When I follow the links "Log in", "Click here to create an account." I get dumped back to the forum and if I use the forum credentials I get "Login error; You are not a member of the required phpBB group."

What am I doing wrong?

Add yourself to the wiki group from inside the forum, bam, problem solved.

Honestly... I think that being apart of the wiki group should happen by default while registering for the forum, Lgro & Zini... what do you think?

I'm sure we could 'mass add' everyone to the group.

This was intentional - it's a part of wiki antispam, but if it's too burdensome then I will enable automatic inclusion to this group for new users.

It is obviously not apparent how to do this without asking in the forums... how could we make it more obvious aside from searching forums or wiki? :P

Just change the error message, instead of "Login error; You are not a member of the required phpBB group."
Write something like: "Login error; Only member of the <GROUPNAME> can log-in. Double check your group settings."


I must be really blind today, I cannot find the wiki syntax page. I sought for "help", "syntax", and "sandbox"...

I think it's a good idea. I will change that message.

Strange, as far I remember that page should be there. I will check this.

// EDIT: Ok, help page was always empty. I've added some simple examples of wiki syntax there.
