Description Arthur Ivanov 2005-11-07 09:17:54 UTC
i need protect private wiki from non-authorized visiters and creation account by
anonymous(only by admins)

in this case 
$wgGroupPermissions['*']['createaccount'] = false;  // disable create account,
only log-in
$wgGroupPermissions['*']['edit'] = false; // disable edit
$wgGroupPermissions['*']['read'] = false; // disable read, but except one page
$wgWhitelistRead = array("Special:Userlogin"); // excluded page .. 

but this not work ... when i attempt to open Special:Userlogin i get message -
you must log-in before ... 
what to do ?
Comment 1 Filip Maljkovic [Dungodung] 2005-11-07 18:21:42 UTC
I reproduced this case and it showed the exact same thing. But then I went on to
change the 
$wgWhitelistRead = array("Special:Userlogin"); // excluded page .. 
line into
$wgWhitelistRead = array("Посебно:Userlogin"); // excluded page .. (i'm not sure
if this will be completely legible)
since I'm using a Serbian interface. It worked and it seems to me that the
software doesn't do redirects when every page is locked for viewing. So it's
only logical that you're using a non-english interface language, so insted of
"Special", write "Служебная" (Sluzhebnaya), since you are probably using a
Russian interface.
Hope this solves it
Comment 2 Arthur Ivanov 2005-11-07 21:38:56 UTC
hm... okey i will try "Служебная" (Sluzhebnaya)
what charset i must use ?  KOI8-R? UTF-8 ? 
Comment 3 Filip Maljkovic [Dungodung] 2005-11-07 23:00:12 UTC
UTF-8 is what MediaWiki uses.
Comment 4 Arthur Ivanov 2005-11-10 13:07:05 UTC
super! ... i type "Служебная" (Sluzhebnaya) in UTF-8 and this solve my problem!
thank you 
Comment 5 Filip Maljkovic [Dungodung] 2005-11-10 15:11:43 UTC
Marking this as fixed... (my first "fixation" :)
Comment 6 Arthur Ivanov 2005-11-10 16:25:52 UTC

anyway, i think that is not a normal solution..
mediawiki must eat English(International) name of page and self-convert to used
language before apply.
