Someone excuse my lack of knowledge on this matter, but isn't (one of) the point(s) of those Wiki thangs that you can revert changes that have been made to the articles? :?

It is.

Problem was probably a spammer that took out the main page. I reverted back to a previous version.

thanks eNGIMa ... you caught it before I even saw it :)

I've just started reorganizing some of the items to give the wiki a little bit more order. Also, I might look into why anon users can edit. I thought users would have to create an account first.

It's an option buried somewhere within the MediaWiki configs. Simple toggle true/false. It defaults to anyone able to edit so that the largest possible group of users can contribute (I'm guessing...). Whatever the case, I did notice that one spammer created an account before posting so I almost overlooked that one in exam procrastination. A lot of wiki's are getting targetted atm.

You can also find it on the Experience \ Resources page

While at it

I have a problem with my Companys Wiki (we run MediaWiki as well).

I'm trying to lock all access to the system assuming users are not logged in. So I did some changes to some access stuff. Point is however, that when I turn of "Read" the user can't get to the login page at all, making it impossible to chose that.

How do I setup so users go directly to Login screen and get to login before being able to view anything? Would be happy if someone assisted me.

Oh, and while at it, please send solution to fredrik_DOT_clementz_AT_gmail_DOOOT_com

I found out if you add the following to your LocalSettings file, it forces people to log on before making edits.

$wgWhitelistEdit = true;
