I have a fix that supports storage of emails in the PasswordManager. For the HtPasswd password manager, the email addresses are stored in the "info" field in the .htpasswd file. It looks in the user topic if a valid email can't be found in the user db.

I can't fully test it, because I can't send mail from my test installation. If someone is prepared to work with me to test it (via IRC), I would be happy to check it in (tomorrow).

Note that the Func::wikiToEmail API already supports this method of getting emails, so the impact on any plugin that uses that API will be zero. If any plugins don't use the API, then there may be trouble.

This fix would allow us to remove the ALLOWTOPICCHANGE line from the user topics, because the email could only be changed via the ChangeEMail topic (a simple script could be used to scrape emails out of existing user topics to ensure security for existing users).


I will gladly help.

My merlin.lavrsen.dk is a machine is ready as trial machine for the experiment.

Let me know what to do.


OK, I tested this as carefully as I can. SVN 8399. With a large measure of cavalier abandon, I'm closing this smile

Further refinements in SVN 8404


Renamed ChangeEMail to ChangeEMailAddress, and did some minor related doc fixes - excellent patch, this.

-- SP

Thanks for making the time to fix this: I'd not been tracking TWiki for the last couple of weeks.


The e-mail address still hit the default form - moved it to the topic text + obfuscated it a bit (http://www.cdt.org/speech/spam/030319spamreport.shtml says it'll probably be enough to avoid spam).

SVN 8415.

-- SP

Cleaned up flow in registration process, allowing for data collected in registration to survive edit roundtrip in user topic.

SVN 8416.

-- SP

Decided comment would be handy to have available for formatted searches etc - included it in UserForm.

SVN 8418.

-- SP

Thank you very much Crawford for jumping on and fixing this!

I renamed ChangeEMailAddress to ChangeEmailAddress and did some more doc work.

New Item1464 to rename TEMPLATEONLY variables.
