Signing into Wiki
« on: July 17, 2013, 05:23:09 PM »
I can't seem to sign into E's wiki. I get to a page that requires me to log in, and I hit the link, but that throws me back to the log-in for the forums proper. Even if log in there (despite already being logged into the forums) I can't see stuff on the wiki.

I believe this happens from time to time when you go from using https on the forum to http on the wiki. You can also try clearing cookies. Also recall that the wiki requires your username (last I checked) to log in... so if your display name is Raveled but you originally signed up with the username (example only) of Derpface, you'd have to use Derpface to log in to the wiki.

Those are all basic troubleshooting steps, though.

I use http to access both the forums and the wiki, and clearing cookies did not work. Any other options?

Is your login name the same as your display name?

If not, does your login name contain an underscore?

Third, did you try a different browser?

What's the URL of the login page you are using?

This is my username.

Trying Opera did not let me sign in.

The URL I'm being redirected to is http://elliquiy.com/forums/index.php?action=login

Not sure how good Opera is for troubleshooting, so for completeness' sake if it were me I'd probably try in Firefox or Chrome. It sounds like some of the session info isn't transferring, so clearing cookies (again, yes), clearing cache, and restarting the browser might work where just clearing the cookies didn't.

Also make sure your computer clock is set correctly. *points to top right corner*

If you've never logged into the wiki before, might have a staffer check your access level to make sure that it's set correctly on the forum side.

Failing that, you'll probably have to PM Vekseid.

This happens because the wiki integration only looks for the basic groups (Lord/Lady/Liege), so if someone is of a different group (has the shiny tag) and didn't get their base group set as an additional for some reason, you run into this.

Should be working now, Raveled.

wow, that's a really odd problem. I've always been able to log in here and hold down/right click wiki to open in a second tab and have it work. Of course I haven't had a reason to use a separate user name or a category other than lord.

Works now! Many thanks, Veks.
