Unable to login or register on wiki documentation area

#1 Post by JBAD » Sun Sep 22, 2013 11:08 am

I'd like to make an addition to the installation guide based on my experience and have been unable to login to the documentation area wiki pages. It looks to want the same credentials I'm using on the forum. I've tried supplying these credentials and have been unable to login.

Some help from an administrator would be appreciated. I'm looking forward to contributing to this project.

Edit: I was wrong. You should be able to use the same username/password as in this forum.

Definitely seeing it and tried it. The link location is:

Code: Select all

http://www.opensourceautomation.com/phpBB3/ucp.php?mode=register
It takes me to the home page of the forum:

Code: Select all

http://www.opensourceautomation.com/phpBB3/
Looking at fiddler, the first link above is just returning a 302.

Since I was redirected to the forum and I'm already registered (and logged in) to the forum... now I've got this thread.

I see what you are saying. Maybe the link was broke on the last site upgrade. Brian will need to help you on this problem.

You should not need to register for an account on the wiki. It is integrated with phpBB. Just use the same credentials as in the forum to log in. Are you sure you used the right credentials? Its possible there is something wrong, but just want to be sure.

I'm at work so can't try right now, but I use a password manager and so am using the exact same credentials by way of copy paste every time.

I can try resetting my password or excluding some special characters later today if you think it might help.

Logged in after removing the ampersand (&) character from the password string... odd.
