Old Backup of Wiki-content
Submitted by Thursday, 1 September, 2005 - 05:04
Unfortunately I had to roll-back a backup of the wiki-content from 26. July 2005, because of a loss of data.
For the future there is a daily backup made automatically.
Please redo any changes that you did since the Backup.
Access for anonymous Users restricted
Submitted by Monday, 1 August, 2005 - 09:50
I had to delete dozens of Spam-Comments every day which were submitted by anonymous users, so I decided to not allow anonymous users to make forum-topics or post comments anymore. Now, as the mail-sending works again, everyone who wants to post can make a new or request a new password for his account.
I appologize for inconvenience, but anonymous users can still read and download all things, just not post.
For problems regarding registration on the community-page you can contact me directly via eMail Vampire@jEdit.org
Mailsending from the Community-page works again
Submitted by Friday, 29 July, 2005 - 09:36
I already wrote it to the Users-Mailinglist, but maybe not all are signed in there, so I write it here again.
I fixed the problem of the community-page not being able to send mails, which prevented new users from creating accounts and old users to request a new password because the mails didn't get to them.
So if you registered an account but never received the password-mail, just go to
Request new password
and request a new one. And of course the same if you forgot your password and need a new one, even if you already tried it and didn't receive a mail. NOW it should send you the requested mail.
