Allegro Wiki Is Back

I've re-enabled editing on the wiki. I gave up bothering with allegro.cc single sign one, and switched to google oauth.

People will need to create a new account, then if wanted i can merge their old account with their new account.

Nice, thanks Thomas!

I notice that the files still seem to be missing, is that expected? E.g. see the screenshots here: https://wiki.allegro.cc/index.php?title=Windows,_Visual_Studio_2015_and_Nuget_Allegro_5.

Edgar, did you create a new account first? Sign up with google first, then you can log in.

Nothing should be missing :o

edit: I think the images are fixed.

Nice! I created a new user elias2 - is there a way to merge that into my old allegro.cc user account somehow?

Do you mean I have to create a new account with Google? I already have like 3.

Is it possible for you to white-list all the allegro.cc email addresses? That way anyone with an allegro.cc account could login using their allegro gmail account. That would be nice anyway.

Edgar, you need to hit 'create account' on the wiki and then enter your Google address in the email address field. Then you can log in using that email address.

Thanks, Thomas, for fixing the images! It seems that everything is working fine.

No, just hit the create account link on the wiki.

In order to authenticate through google, everything has to be done by the user. All the wiki does is forward you to google, and google returns us a magic token which we then use to get your basic information.

I believe the email field is ignored. All that's needed is a unique nickname/username and the wiki pulls your email from google. then once you have an account, you just hit login and google does its magic.

Error.

{"name":"610935","src":"\/\/djungxnpq2nug.cloudfront.net\/image\/cache\/e\/5\/e5ea5c6f2300dd5f903b0e59949b8252.png","w":599,"h":554,"tn":"\/\/djungxnpq2nug.cloudfront.net\/image\/cache\/e\/5\/e5ea5c6f2300dd5f903b0e59949b8252"}610935

So there's no way to import a.cc's google accounts? They can login to google, why can't they login to the wiki? That's what Single Sign On is for, right?

It said my name was already being used, but I don't remember making an account. When I click log in it says The supplied credentials are not associated with any user on this wiki. :(

Gosh, this is like an IQ test. You can't use the same username as your allegro.cc user name, because wiki used to use allegro.cc's usernames, so I imagine they're all pre-registered. So you need a new user name, and it'll work :P.

Subtle burn. You used an emoticon so it's okay though :P

My IQ is fine. :P (See what I did, I used an emoticon there...)

I realize a different user name will work, but this is kind of obnoxious having to jump through hoops like this.

Why can't we import the a.cc google email addresses and usernames again? I'm having trouble understanding this point.

The previous wiki has no access to the allegro.cc login info (email and password) - it used the SSO service provided by allegro.cc. The new wiki also has no direct user accounts, instead it uses google SSO/oauth/whatever. Unless someone uses a gmail email address on allegro.cc I don't think there is any way to link accounts automatically.

That's tricky, since a lot of us have been members since before gmail existed.

I'd completely forgotten about that, having never used it.

I linked my Google account to A.cc too, but I'm not sure that the wiki paired the two. It doesn't matter all that much to me though. I've only edited a single page or two before.

There is no easy way to migrate a.cc sso to google sso. They both use magic "tokens" and other such shenanigans.

If by chance the allegro auth wasn't broken, i could have both enabled, and you could link your acc account to a google sso account... buutt... nah.
