Beta 2 is up and running here. Great work! Big fun!

This is just a minor inconvenience I've observed when registering....

In Dakar, the first and last names have different INPUT elements in the form, which is fine. The automatic construction of the WikiName occurs when the WikiName field is losing its focus. But to make this happen the field has to get focus in the first place, which isn't always the case.

I performed the following steps:

  1. enter 'harald' into the field labeled 'First Name'
  2. hit <TAB>
  3. enter 'jörg' into the field labeled 'Last Name'
  4. hit <TAB>
  5. this may be a browser issue: Mozilla on Linux now has the focus on the Link to WikiName and not to the INPUT field. However, the same effect can be achieved by directly clicking into another field after finishing the last name.
  6. Anyway, 'Last Name' has lost its focus and WikiName is now 'haraldjörg'.
  7. I did not hit <TAB> again, but directly clicked into the next required field, filling the rest of the form.

Finally, 'haraldjörg' is passed to the registration script which complains about the invalid WikiName.

In Cairo, the complete WikiName construction (capitalization of first and last name, killing spaces, elimination of umlauts) happened immediately after the 'Name' field lost focus. This was pretty sure to happen.

BTW: A related thing turns up if I do tab over the WikiName field: Only the first name is capitalized, leaving the (still illegal) WikiName 'Haraldjoerg'.

Ah, and there's a trivial typo in TWikiUsers (TWikiRegsitrationAgent).

Cheers, TWiki:Main.HaraldJoerg

its much worse than that - the javascript does not strip spaces from the firstname or anything... svn:6875-- SD
