Authentication

Under "no authentication", cannot create new accounts

Under "no authentication", cannot create new accounts
 

I'm using 1.5 +.  I have a big class, so I want to avoid having to manually enroll students.  I'm also using 1.4.4 for another class, where the "no authentication" works great for having students create their own accounts.

The problem with my version 1.5 + is that students cannot create new accounts.  "Invalid Login, please try again". 

I think Vito LaVolpe encountered the same problem with 1.5 but there have been no responses to this: http://moodle.org/mod/forum/post.php?reply=119977

Is this a bug, should I report it, or is there a setting I'm missing somewhere?

I submitted a bug to the Bug Tracker on this, however, it has not been acted upon as of yet.  For many of the organizations that I service this is a HUGE issue.

Would a developer PLEASE comment on this problem and how we can resolve the issue.  This was not a problem prior to updating to 1.5 and 1.5+.

It's trivially easy to fix.  In auth/none/lib.php change the line
return false;
to
return true;

It's now fixed in CVS.

I changed that, but I get a "sorry, you may not use this page" when a user clicks on the create a new account.

Ideas?

I have reviewed my auth files and they state the "return true" statement as of 6/25/05, however, I keep getting the "sorry, you can't use this page" message in pink!!! 

Does anybody have this working with the latest downloads of 1.5?

I hope this issue stays in the bug tracker!

The problem is that the link in the login block does not change when you initiate the no authentication method. It is still trying to send you to the new user form used in the Email Authentication method. To fix this by editing the login block so the Create New Account link points to the login page. I wish the login page wasn't also the page to create a new account with the No Authentication option. This is a little confusing to use the same form to login and create a new account. Hope this helps.

Hello,

I have found the same problem -- although in the bug tracker dated 1/26 it says that it was resolved, but I get the error that the page cannot be shown everytime I switched to "no authentication".  Has anyone been able to spot the problem? or what else need to be edited to make it work.  I want to be able to create new accounts without having an email - therefore no confirmations of accounts needed.

Thank you,

Elizabeth
