    • User Mapping (mapping between login name and WikiName) code has been extended to allow pluggable modules to integrate with all sorts of alternative authentication and Management schemes. For normal cases you use the default TWikiUserMapping which is using the Main.TWikiUsers topic to map between login and WikiName. A new BaseUserMapping is provided for TWikis where you only have guests and an administrator. In this case you use the login and password given in configure to login as an admin.
