Whether someone can create an account depends on the “register” permission for guest. This is what you need to configure for your wiki. Global/Local user simply defines where the user accounts can be created (on the main wiki - ie global -, or on the local wiki - ie local). On the main wiki we allow everyone to register accounts :) Thanks -Vincent > Kind regards, > Stefan _______________________________________________ users mailing list email@example.com http://lists.xwiki.org/mailman/listinfo/users
