Description

Within the body of the wiki start page, there's a pretty prominent link that says "log in with a GitHub account" but it points to the old basic auth login. This should be updated to point to the new GitHub login.

There's one other place that this manifests.

If you go to a login-protected page (e.g., new ticket) and you're *not* logged in, you get an "Error: Forbidden" page. At the top of that page is a message that says "You are currently not logged in. You may want to do so now.", which links to the Trac login URL.

So - we need to fix that link. And if we can make the "forbidden page" a little more humane while we're at it....

This is handled deep inside Trac: http://trac.edgewall.org/browser/trunk/trac/web/main.py#L554

I'm not sure how to make changes to that behavior.

re #23432, could we change a lot of our links to point to the wiki home page, rather than login required urls like /newticket?

comment:9 Changed 9 months ago by aaugustin

Yes, we could.

https://github.com/django/djangoproject.com/pull/85 changed some /newticket links to point to home page

In 8a46e5816efe6e45342bc7bdca4371bb54e448a8/djangoproject.com:

Refs #23334 -- changed some /newticket links

/newticket currently has an unfriendly "forbidden" error if you are
logged out. Send them to wiki home page instead.

We've restored the ability to login using basic auth and there's a fairly prominent link to "GitHub Login" on the page, so I think this is good enough for now.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
