Description Borgx 2006-03-28 10:04:48 UTC
In restricted wiki when administrator is the only person which can create
account, all account must be created by admin. After create account, user
(administrator) automatically logged-in with that account. And he/she must
log-out and relogin again as administrator. This is annoying. Please disable
this automatic log-in when creating account only when in restricted mode
Comment 1 Rob Church 2006-04-30 02:00:17 UTC
Fixed in SVN trunk, r13955.
Comment 2 Brion Vibber 2006-04-30 05:39:58 UTC
The fix for this caused a serious privacy violation, and has 
been reverted.
Comment 3 Brion Vibber 2006-04-30 05:58:18 UTC
Specifically, calling the hook function (which runs the user 
creation log) before setting $wgUser exposed the private IP 
addresses of anyone creating an account to being recorded in 
Comment 4 Rob Church 2006-05-01 00:37:47 UTC
Fix was corrected and re-committed.
