Is http://wiki.slimdevices.com/ in good health? I get the following message when I attempt to log in:


SqueezeboxWiki uses cookies to log in users. You have cookies disabled. Please enable them and try again.

Should work again. Thanks for the heads up!

Thanks. However, now I find I'm unable to edit pages. I get the following message:


You do not have permission to edit this page, for the following reason:

The action you have requested is limited to users in one of the groups: Bots, Administrators, Bureaucrats, emailconfirmed, developer.

I see that the emailconfirmed group was obsoleted back in MediaWiki version 1.13 (https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:User_rights#List_of_groups). It seems that itís now necessary to configure the $wgAutopromote setting (https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:$wgAutopromote) to get this working again.

I made you a bureaucrat. Did that help?

Yes, that's done the trick, thanks.
