First of all, great job. This had made out company product wiki look great and I'm having fun customizing the new page.
In chrome and safari, when logged out, the user drop down menu at the top right (the orange one) shows the ip address of the user and the drop down has a login link. On firefox, a link saying "log in" shows but does not load the login page when clicked. Hopefully this is a simple fix but until then, it inhibits the editing of the page unless I add a login link elsewhere.
Thanks again for some great software!
I do notice (at least in Firefox) that the skin shows 'create account' rather than the IP address by default for unauthenticated users. However, I'm still able to link through to the login page.
The links are generated from MediaWiki BaseTemplate class, which would be shared among all skins.
Is this a public wiki?
First up, the link anchor to log in link is not tied to button, but to the text. This is not desirable, and will be fixed very soon. My guess is that you were clicking the button (rather than the "Log in" text)? I'll open another issue regarding that.
As far as "Log in" showing with no dropdown, this isn't a Firefox-specific issue. It has to do with MediaWiki cookies and which links they generate based on said cookies. Clear your cookies in Chrome/Safari and you should see the same behavior. Assuming typical MediaWiki installation (ie, no extensions installed that change login behavior): upon visit to log in page, MediaWiki will log your IP address and use that as user account for visitors (in your case with read-only permission). I'll be sure to account for these behaviors in a future update as well. I will reference this issue (#18) when that is fixed.
Thanks for pointing these out.
PS, great looking wiki!
Yes. Able to link to login page.
