Summary: pmwiki 2 author not stored in page data or displayed in page history
Created: 2004-09-19 12:56
Status: Closed - fixed for 2.0.devel6
Category: Bug
Priority: 5
Version: 2.0.devel5
OS: Linux 2.4.20-31.9 #1 i686 / PHP Version 4.3.4

Description: Using pmwiki 2 (pmwiki-2.0.devel5) and have run into a problem with author tracking. When I look at page diffs I see only the IP address of the author, not the author name.

I've set the following two config variables in my local/config.php file:

    $EnableAuthorTracking = 1;
    $EnableAuthorRequired = 1;

If I look at the raw page data in wiki.d the author is not stored.

The particularly odd thing is that I have mail notifications turned on, and in the notifications the author is noted.

Here some info from php_info():

PHP Version 4.3.4


 Linux wintermute 2.4.20-31.9 #1 Tue Apr 13 18:04:23 EDT 2004 i686

_SERVER["SERVER_SIGNATURE"] <ADDRESS>Apache/1.3.29 Server at domain.name Port 80</ADDRESS>



_REQUEST["author"] Larry

_COOKIE["author"] Larry

_SERVER["HTTP_COOKIE"] author=Larry

$Author simply wasn't being stored in pages or page history. Fixed for 2.0.devel6. --Pm

For those who may come across this page later looking for a way to force an author name in posts, the setting is actually

    $EnablePostAuthorRequired = 1;
