We currently have:


Enter your LoginName. (Typically First name and last name, no space, no dots, capitalized, e.g. JohnSmith, unless you chose otherwise). Visit TWikiRegistration if you do not have one.

This could be shortened to:

This is your name written as WikiWord, for example: JohnSmith.
Register if you do not have an account yet.

if you use the AllowLoginName cfg to cahnge the text to something like This is your login, for example: jsmith, then that makes some sense.

OR, seeing as I implemented switchable login templates for TemplateLogin, we could have the twikiusermapper select either login.wikiname.tmpl or login.loginname.tmpl, and thus a PAMusermapping, or LDAPusermapping would select login.pam.tmpl and login.ldap.tmpl= respectivly.

Also remember to make the registration optional on both the registration_supported context, and the registration_enabled context.

Created a new text in login.tmpl, leaving the more general {AuthRealm} as is.
