Multiuser facility
#1
Could I simply point out that the GetSimple website front page says multiuser is possible, but the instructions given on the wiki (linked from there) seemingly have not worked for years. The plugin suggested is long term unsupported, and getSimple has changed in the meantime.

You can get multiuser to work with a modified plug in, v1.90 I think. But the wiki needs updating. I'd do it myself, but I don't have the background knowledge to be sure that using v1.90 is the best way.

I'd be happier if this plugin was officially supported, to be honest - as it's a core part of the functionality, liisted on the front page.

Thanks for providing the software

It is all a matter of who has the time for this work.
How about hiring a coder and we all share the cost.

Hi, I just tested multi user and it works fine. Just make sure the username in the xml file is the same as the filename.

So user bram3000 = bram3000.xml

Also keep the password written in the file the same and type password as the password at login screen.

The first option given in the multiuser link is not to the 'manual method', but is to the 'multiuser plugin method'. I tried the plugin method, which did not work for me. Thanks for telling me the manual method works - I had not properly understood that.

Yes, I do understand the difficulties - I've been contributing elsewhere.

The main thing is to update the wiki, so others are not misled; would you like me to modify that page? It's quick to do. The caveat is that I don't have background knowledge. So I'd say that the manual method was first choice, and the updated plugin is an alternative but is unsupported and has not been updated for a long time.
