Re-enables fix in User.php for REL1_4 (803 bytes, patch)
2005-01-02 19:24 UTC, Zigger

Description bdk 2004-12-30 20:34:41 UTC
several complaints by users of de.wikipedia, that they can´t log in since mediawiki 1.4 is 
running because they´re using german umlauts in their passworts like ä, ö or ü. Some of 
them didn´t specify an email-adress, so it´s impossible for them to get an automatically 
created new one ... this problem was once fixed for version 1.3.

problem was reported at Diskussion:MediaWiki_1.4

Comment 2 Zigger 2005-01-04 14:27:02 UTC
The old fix for old passwords (from before the UTF8 conversion) is now back on  
If you were affected, please change your password so it gets encoded correctly
to avoid this happening again, or set an email address.
