NAME ^

Kwiki::Edit::RequireUserName - Replaces Kwiki::Edit in order to require a user name to edit

SYNOPSIS ^

This plugin helps reduce WikiSpam by requiring that the user have a user name before editing. The idea is that SpamBots won't take the trouble to do this. Of course this won't prevent spam created manually.

REQUIRES ^

   Kwiki 0.37 (new hooking mechanism)
   Kwiki::UserName (adds user name functionality to Kwiki)
   Kwiki::UserPreferences (adds the ability to change user names)

INSTALLATION ^

   perl Makefile.PL
   make
   make test
   make install

   cd ~/where/your/kwiki/is/located
   vi plugins

Add the line

  Kwiki::Edit::RequireUserName

If you don't already have them add the following also

  Kwiki::UserName
  Kwiki::UserPreferences

Then run

  kwiki -update

UPGRADING ^

The previous version of Kwiki::Edit::RequireUserName subclassed Kwik::Edit, so the old documentation asked you to remove Kwiki::Edit from your list of plugins. This new version of Kwiki::Edit::RequireUserName no longer subclasses Kwiki::Edit, so you should put that line back in.

ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS ^

This plugin was inspired by the techniques used in Kwiki::Scode by Kang-min Liu.
