SID-01312: Register a user without Mail

Status: Answered Answered TWiki version: 5.1.0 Perl version: 5.12.4
Category: CategoryRegistration Server OS: Ubuntu 11.10 Last update: 3 years ago

I have no mail activated and the var {EnableMail} in configure is unchecked. I have the following issue. When i want to register a new user, i fill out the form and click on submit.

After that, the browser makes an redirect to the logon window with the following url "http://myservername/twiki/bin/login/Main/TWikiRegistration?twiki_redirect_cache=15a9c3ed0ae9a5d2bef4e9bd3f72b008"

In this form, i typing in the logon credentials as typed in into the form and receive an error message ""You're already registered". But the user exist in the system. if i type in the url manually and logon the user, all works fine.

For my opinion, this is a wron behavior. Either the browser is redirected after registration with an logged on user to the homepage or the browser is redirected to the logon screen for typing in the crdentials and logging on a user.

Please help me, i'm not able to register any user with an intuitive behavior.

Discussion and Answer

I planned to restict access the pages of mainweb for "normal reghistered untrusted users". I did it with set ALLOWWEBCHANGES = TRUSEDUSER in main web preferences. This brings the strange behavior. Remove the line and the logon works well

That looks like an incorrect error message. Could you file a bug report? TWikibug:WebHome.

You can lock down the Main web to a group, but make sure that the TWikiRegistrationAgent user can write to the Main web as well:
  * Set ALLOWWEBCHANGE = TrustedGroup, TWikiRegistrationAgent
