CAPTCHA group exceptions only apply to edits
Closed, ResolvedPublic


With these settings:

$wgGroupPermissions['sysop' ]['skipcaptcha'] = true;
$wgCaptchaTriggers['createaccount'] = true; // Special:Userlogin&type=signup

Shouldn't a sysop, when logged in, be able to create accounts without being prompted for the CAPTCHA?

Version: unspecified
Severity: normal


bzimport set Reference to bz12142.
bzimport added a subscriber: Unknown Object (MLST).

Adds a check for allowing a user to skip the CAPTCHA when creating a new account if he has the skipcaptcha right.

I'm surprised none of the people who create accounts for others on Wikipedia have complained about this.

Probably not the most elegant fix, but it works. *crosses fingers*
