This makes it difficult. Can you reproduce the problem on a public wiki,
by any chance? Otherwise, debugging this could take some time.

Go to a page that has the (:wikiform:) directive on it.
Does action=diag tell you anything useful about what might be wrong?

Try a View Source and see exactly what html is being generated for the form.

Is there any password security in place that may be preventing it from
reading the template page?

It sounds as if it's not able to read the form template page.

OK that means the form code is working and generating the form. Good!
