Description Lisa Ridley 2008-05-29 03:27:30 UTC
Discovered this in 1.13alpah, rev 35524.  Setting $wgEmailConfirmToEdit = true; generates the following error message whenever an anonymous users tries to create a new account:

Permissions error

You do not have permission to create new user accounts, for the following reasons: You must confirm your e-mail address before editing pages. Please set and validate your e-mail through your user preferences.

I tried setting $wgGroupPermissions['*']['createaccount'] = true; but this did not resolve the problem.

I disabled all extensions and the error persists.  This was not an issue in version 1.11.2 (don't know about version 1.12 -- never utilized that one).
Comment 1 Lisa Ridley 2008-05-29 14:29:14 UTC
Installed and tested $wgEmailConfirmToEdit in version 1.12, and it functions as expected there.
Comment 2 Alexandre Emsenhuber [IAlex] 2008-05-29 17:50:50 UTC
fixed in r35556.
