In earlier versions of Tiki, usernames for login were case insensitive.
marclaporte = MarcLaporte
Now, they are case sensitive:
marclaporte <> MarcLaporte
This is a usability problem, especially with non-technical users.
When trying to login with their username (with a different case) they get "Invalid username or password".
So they try to use tiki-remind_password.php (again with the wrong case) The error message is: "Unable to send mail. User has not configured email: MarcLaporte"
So they end up trying to create another user. When they try to create a new user with a different case, they get an error "User already exists". If usernames are really case sensitive, I should be able to create 2 distinct users, MarcLaporte and marclaporte. This would obviously lead to confusion.
My request / suggestion:
Restore case insensitiveness in usernames for logins (or at least restore the option with much better error messages when in case sensitive mode)
Done in 1.10!
THIS BUG IS DEFINITEVLY CLOSED. another bug in the trackers
Closed due to sylvie's definitive statement! ;)

Unable to get information from show2.tiki.org. Please let us know of the problem so that we can do something about it. Thanks.
Show.tiki.org is in the progress of creating the new instance. Please continue waiting for a minute or two. If this continues on for more than 10 minutes, please let us know of the problem so that we can do something about it. Thanks.
To help developers solve the bug, we kindly request that you demonstrate your bug on a show2.tiki.org instance. To start, simply select a version and click on "Create show2.tiki.org instance". Once the instance is ready (in a minute or two), as indicated in the status window below, you can then access that instance, login (the initial admin username/password is "admin") and configure the Tiki to demonstrate your bug. Priority will be given to bugs that have been demonstrated on show2.tiki.org.
The URL for the show2.tiki.org instance that demonstrates this bug is at: http://. Note that if you get a popup asking for a username/password, please just enter "show" and "show". This is different from the initial login and password for a new Tiki which is "admin" and "admin".
For the install log, see http:///info.txt
Note that if you see PHP errors or a Tiki claiming to be missing third party software, the instance creation is probably not finished. Please wait a couple minutes and reload.
Snapshots are database dumps of the configuration that developers can download for debugging. Once you have reproduced your bug on the show2.tiki.org instance, create a snapshot that can then be downloaded by developers for further investigation.
Snapshots can be accessed at: http:///snapshots/. Note that if you get a popup asking for a username/password, please just enter "show" and "show".Create new snapshot
