Hi there,

One of my wikis is currently setup with a one-password-for-all (read and
edit) and $EnablePostAuthorRequired<http://www.pmwiki.org/wiki/PmWiki/EditVariables#EnablePostAuthorRequired>=1.
When users login on the wiki, they have to provide a login name (anything
they want) and the wiki password. If they attempt to edit a page, there is a
red warning message "An author name is required" displayed only the first
time they save an edit. I was wondering whether it is possible to have
pmwiki inherit that author name from the login name because this has caused
a bit of confusion with my users.

Kind regards,

no road, the road is made by walking. By walking one makes the road, and
upon glancing behind one sees the path that never will be trod again.
