The wiki

Post by AndrewZabar »

Hi all,
I wanted to know how can I register a login for the wiki. Also, I want to ask why on earth do you need to login in order to search? I've never seen a wiki that requires login in order to search for information. Thanks.

You register on the bugtracker https://gambaswiki.org/bugtracker

Only registered users can search to reduce bandwidth and to stop abuse/excess use (hand made software using the page)
The wiki site has limited bandwidth and needs to be paid for. so only registered users get the privilege

If you want to search without it then use the gambas preferences to use "Offline documentation" (after hitting download go make a tea as it takes ages and in gtk does not show much of what is happening but appears to hang, you just have to wait)

searching is possible with offline documentation.
If at first you don't succeed , try doing something differently.
