Creating a profile

Please fill out Name, Password, Password repeat and Email.

(!) It is best to choose a WikiName (like FirstnameLastname) as username to get your changes and signatures link back to your WikiHomepage. Your email is needed for you to be able to get notifications on page changes and to recover lost login data.

If you click on Create Profile, a user profile will be created for you.

Resetting password

If you forgot your password, provide your email address and click on Mail me my account data. The button is only available if the wiki has been configured to support email.

The email you get contains the encrypted password (so even if someone intercepts the mail, he won't know your REAL password). Just copy and paste it into the login mask into the password field and log in.

Then change your password to a known value and save your settings.

Changing settings

Save updates your profile (stored on the wiki server).
