Description: I am currently working a lot with Presence Awareness because I need a program where I can have people self-register and fill in a lot more information than just a username and password.

I have run into 3 bugs, however.

1. I keep getting this odd problem as mentioned by steve "The redirect from action=login only works for users with admin rights. When users don't have admin rights, it does not redirect to the page and says "Insufficient privileges to perform action." The login works, but the user has to click on another link before it activates. Any ideas would be great." I get the same problem and although I've changed what is said (congratulations you registered!, the entire recipe stopped working).

2. The only required fields are name and password, you are not required to fill in the other fields (although they are there). How do I make those fields required? How do I store that information (e-mail addresses, phone numbers, addresses, etc.)?

3. By looking at the site http://nemophp.altervista.org/, it would seem that the version 1.0 is better than 1.1 (1.1 has numerous scripting problems, is slower and also doesn't give the same benefits such as showing where the person is editing as 1.0). Anyone have a take on this issue?

Thanks for your help! I'm very thankful that the PMWiki community helps another. Hopefully I'll get better at this program so I can help newbies too.
