After some fiddling around in the early hours of Friday (it’s 1 AM as I write this), Shane and I managed to get Single User Login (SUL) working.
The idea of SUL is that you can log into all Battlestar Wikis (i.e. all languages and the Media wiki) by only logging in once. To enable SUL for you, do the following:
- Log out
- Log back in while keeping “Remember me on this computer”. (Check this post, as this is a temp fix.)
- Go to Special:MergeAccount. You should see a big header saying “Login unification complete”. If you don’t, you’ll have to enter your password in the form and click “Confirm login information”, then click “Unify accounts”. After that, you should see “Login unification complete” as well.
- Go to a wiki where you’ve never even *been* before ( the Chinese wiki is a good candidate for most people).
- You’re logged in already! You don’t even have to create an account there: it’s been automatically created behind the scenes.
Note that steps 1, 2 and 3 only have to be taken once. If you have any problems using SUL, please report them at the Chiefs’ Noticeboard and I’ll look at them. If you are having trouble, lease send us an email at webmaster [at] battlestarwiki [dot] org as you can not post as a guest.
