Seems not possible to create users on the wiki these days.

    Works for me.

    You don't need to create a user account per se. You simply log in with any user name of your choice, but it *must* be in the form of a WikiWiki word; perhaps yours didn't meet that criterion.

    yep I used RogerDPack and it threw an obscure error. Perhaps an error telling me what a wiki word is would be nice :) Thanks!

    Yes, the error message is infuriatingly obscure :( I didn't set this stuff up, but I believe it's just the phpWiki standard authentication module which is responsible.

    Sure, if I knew how to make it do that :) FWIW, it needs two or more title case words, (initial capital, followed by one or more lower case letters), concatenated with no white space, but it doesn't allow two consecutive capitals; (I guess you've already figured that out). I normally use `KeithMarshall'; `KeithDMarshall' gives it a hissy fit, but spelling it out as `KeithDonaldMarshall' makes it ok again.

    > Thanks!

    You're welcome.

    Or, perhaps RTFW would be nice. ;p The provided link is the first item of the main page. I haven't taken the time to look at how to make the error pretty. I think it can be done but don't have the heart to look into it ATM.
