I can't login to my project's mediawiki. When I try to, the wiki start page is reloaded, but I am not logged in. I'm using my sf account data. Any hints?

mediawiki is enabled, other users can log in and edit...
I call my project url (I am automatically logged in):
I click on "Hosted Apps"->"MediaKWiki", the wiki main poage is loaded.
3. I click on log in, and enter my data into the upcoming window.
then the same page is loaded again, and I am not logged in.
entering the wrong authentication data results in appearing of the log in window again, so my login seems to be recognized somehow.
tried with iceweasel 3.0.4 and konqueror 3.5.9, same result.
Have you tried this from a different browser like Firefox? Please give that a go as Konqueror is not on our supported software list:
I ususally work with iceweasel which IS firefox. I only tried konqueror, because iceweasel didn't work.
Okay, I'm going to escalate this to see if the Service Operations Group has any ideas on how to resolve your issue.
any news regarding this topic?
This is a known issue with the SourceForge Hosted App instance of MediaWiki and we're working on it. I do not have a timeline when it will be fixed, but we will be mass updating the tickets when it is.
In the meantime one workaround is to register a different username without an underscore in it, assign that user privileges to your project and wiki and use that user until such time as this bug is fixed.
Service Operations Group
The problem of logging in to MediaWiki with at '_' in the username has been fixed. Should you have further issues, please respond to this support request.
Programmer/Analyst, SourceForge.net Support
I have exactly the same problem. It seems the issue is not yet solved for all logins.
- My login is "muriel_"
- The MediaWiki I am trying to log into is for project "resourcelevel": http://apps.sourceforge.net/mediawiki/resourcelevel/index.php?title=Main_Page
- I tried in both Chrome and IE7, and got the same result: the "login" link still gets back to the main page without logging in.
Am I missing something ?
Please can you confirm if this is a known issue or if I have missed something ?
If you confirm that it is due to a different problem than the initial issue, do you need me to open a new ticket to track it ?
Matthew S. Moore
muriel_ please submit a separate support request for your issue.
Please advise: Is this issue still present?
