Editing the Wiki

Post by Ravenwing » 10 Sep 2016, 06:41

So FYI to people who want to edit the wiki but don't know how, just follow the directions on the last line here. Not sure why it took me so long to find how to do, but figured it might help someone. Perhaps you can add that to your stickie Atahualpa since this is likely to be a thread visited by people who don't read the rest of the forums extensively?

The other reason I posted is I still can't log in. I'm coming up with this error:

Code: Select all

Auto-creation of a local account failed: Automatic account creation is not allowed.
lgromanowski, do you know what this means or if I'm doing something wrong? I know it's recognizing my account because before it said I didn't have user privileges or some such.

Thanks all, and happy testing!

Oh, this information is quite hidden. Anyway, I'll update my post as soon as your problems are solved.

Hi,
if you encounter any problems with website (blog, forums, wiki) it's better to post in Discuss the site forum, or send me PM (or email), because I'm not reading all posts on forum.

I'll check what happened.
best regards,
Lukasz

There was a problem with new AuthManager introduced in new mediawiki.
