The Add User
page lets you create a new user name
The options are:
- User name (input field): enter the new user name here –
the name may contain any characters (including spaces) but must start
with an alphabetic character; you can use MemoWiki notation for accents,
etc., but note that the user must use the same notation to login.
- Create a page for this user (in Users topic) (checkbox):
check to automatically create a user page for the user
- User is an administrator (checkbox): if checked gives the
user administrator privileges (currently somewhat limited, but includes
the ability to publish a topic and to edit read-only
- Topics list (input field): to restrict the user to specific
topic(s) enter the topic names in this field, separated by commas
(all other topics, except the MemoWiki documentation topic, will
then not be visible to the user). If no names are entered, the user
will have access to all current (and future) topics. Use MemoWiki
notation for accented characters.
On clicking Create, creation of the user name is confirmed if successful.
If this is the first user created then authentication is turned on
automatically, and you will need to log in as that user.
Please see the Users documentation for more details on what a user
name is, etc.
