Description (last modified by DrewAPicture)

Ok this is the third time I've tried to post this here- I've split the password up because I thought that some bit may be preventing this from being posted thinking that I'm revealing sensitive data.

I set my password to a strong one with brackets, double quotes and a semicolon in it. This worked for the forums and the trac but not for the codex (wouldn't let me in).

The codex, being on MediaWiki, has different constraints on passwords and usernames than our support forums, where the usernames and passwords actually live. So there is a mismatch there that is not easily fixable.

In the long run, we hope to eliminate the use of MediaWiki. However, there is a viable workaround, which is to use a more compatible, but much longer, password. Like, 30-40 characters instead of only 20.

For now, I'm marking this as wontfix. Eventually, we'll have a better system for documentation than mediawiki.
