It looks like there is no way to logout of ikiwiki at present, meaning that if you edit the ikiwiki in, say, a cybercafe, the cookie remains... is there some other security mechanism in place that can check for authorization, or should I hack in a logout routine into ikiwiki.cgi?
Click on "Preferences". There is a logout button there. --liw
openid_providercookie is purely a convenience cookie to auto-select the user's openid provider the next time they log in. As such, it cannot be a session cookie. It does not provide any personally-identifying information so it should not really matter when it expires.) --Joey
It would be nice to move navigational elements to the upper right corner of the page...
I have two kinds of pages (wiki and blog), and three classes of users
anonymous users - display things like login, help, and recentchanges,
non-admin users - on a per subdir basis (blog and !blog) display logout, help, recentchanges, edit, comment
admin users - logout, help, recentchanges, edit, comment, etc
I was referred to this page from posting to the forum. I am also interested in being able to use user class and status to modify the page. I will try to put together a plugin. From what I can see there needs to be a few items in it.
It should expose a link to a dedicated login page that, once logged in, returns the user to the calling page, or at least the home page. I have started a plugin to do this: justlogin
it needs to expose a link to a little json explaining the type of user and login status.
it should expose a link that logs the person out and returns to the calling page, or at least the home page.
