@WongCK - he means in the Wiki as this thread is under the Wiki Discussions section :)

One for Dal to look at - probably just a permissions thing.

Ahhh... I see. :wink:
I never uploaded any files in the Wiki, only writing text.
So I did not notice it.

So long as you're logged into the wiki then uploading files, creating articles, editing etc is allowed.
The Wiki login is now linked directly to the forum users table.

I'm not able to verify file uploads to the Wiki right now, but I can check it later as I have a couple of things on the to do list :)

I can create and edit no problem, but the page where you upload images has gone as far as I can tell ?

OK it's all sorted - Uploads have now been enabled and the upload page can be accessed from the toolbox on the left hand side.

I also saw some Wiki pages that looks not correct (typical end-use speak.... :lol: ).

The formatting mark-up was displayed as part of the text -- curly brackets and other stuff.
Unfortunately I did not note down which wiki pages (typical of an end-user... :lol: ).
If I encounter them again I will make a note.
I hope it's not Chrome :roll: .

Could be, the wiki was resurected with an old database and the latest version of MediaWiki so there may be some oddities to sort out. If you spot them again, maybe you can fix it by editing the article - if not, let me know...

some of the templates are acting screwy:

wiki/index.php?title=Template:Infobox_computer_underground

which is used here (as well as a few other pages) :

wiki/index.php?title=Torment
