Can't log into Wiki anymore ?
« on: May 06, 2006, 01:42:02 pm »
Hello,

In the very beginning of the Wiki I posted and changed some info without a problem.

Now I wanted to edit some incorrect info, but I can't log-on anymore ? Is my account altered in some way ?

Thx

Using same username/password as the message forum?

You might simply be using the wrong password. If you have the cookie set for the forum, or using an autocomplete, the forum will keep you logged in. You may have simply forgotton what the original password was. :)

Try resetting the password and try the wiki again. I'm not having an issue logging in, and you're the only one reporting problems (I see activity on the wiki today from other users).

Well if the password of the BYOAC forum and the Wiki are synced (which they should be), I am definitly using the right password. Of course I already verified that by logging out of the forum manualy and relogging in, and as you can see that is no problem. I also never use autocomplete with passwords for security reasons, but I do use cookies to stay logged in.

So strange I'm the only one having this problem !

I will try reset the password this afternoon, heading for work now.

It's not so much a syncronization, but a pointer to the forum user table. But anyway, I've removed the pointer for your account, so it should repoint when you try your login to the wiki. Let me know if that fixes it. Also, try resetting the password just to eliminate that as well.

btw, I have the same trouble here.  I thought I was able to log in the first week it was public, but I haven't been able to since.

And considering how I can just ramble on for ages and ages and ages... thought I would like to start adding some parts here and there..

I've adjusted the code a bit. I've also created a test user that was able to log in without issue. Can those of you with trouble try again and see if things get better?

hmm.... now I CAN'T log in.  I wondered why my cookie stopped sending the p/w all of the sudden.  ;)

Do you suppose it is becuase of the special editing you had to do to get me to log in?

Nothing has really changed since we got you working. Did you change your password or do anything else funky?

I'm still having trouble, can i get some help?

I noticed when I tried to log in this message is printed on the page (But it is behind all the logos and stuff so it has hard for me to get).

Notice: Undefined variable: fstrWikiID in /www/html/wiki.arcadecontrols.com/w/extensions/Auth_smf.php on line 408

Yeah, I know about that undefined variable. It's because I'm not using a feature of the bridge code, and there isn't a great way to rip out the variables without it complaining.

I have whiped your listing in the wiki user database. So, try these steps:

  • Reset your password on the forum
  • Try to log into the wiki once the password is set

Let me know if that works.

I think I have found the error and corrected it. It was failing due to some group checking code of the bridge. It seems if we put people in a "Wiki Contributor" group, the bridge code would puke on it. So, I just went in and forced the routine to be true all the time, thus it'll work no matter what.
