Hi !
Since 2.92 I can't log in with my bot (WikiBotException, "Login failed. Check your username and password."). I tried to compare 2.91 and 2.92 sources but I saw no differences around the log in method.
To test it create any account on www.wikia.com then try to log with it on any wiki on wikia with dotnetwikibot.
Best regards.

    It's not a bug in DotNetWikiBot, Wikia creators have implemented special AJAX login procedure, that is not compatible with standard MediaWiki login. I'll investigate what can be done about that.

    I'm pretty sure they let the API login untouched, why would they have put AJAX in API ?
    Remember that I can actually log in to Wikia using 2.91 version...
    Thanks for investigating.

    They use "api.php?action=ajaxlogin" that is not part of official API.

    I see you were forced to add authentication specific to Wikia, sad but true.
    I tried 2.98beta2 and it works, I can log in again.
    Good work (as always) ! Thanks.
