Ah. Now I recall. The new version conflicted with requiring an
author name on edits.
I have $EnablePostAuthorRequired = 1; in local/config.php, as
instructed on http://www.pmwiki.org/wiki/Cookbook/RequireAuthor, but
once logged in with an edit-enabling password, I was able to save
changes without entering an Author name.
So I reverted to the older version of the Author Contributions recipe,
which created AuthorName pages in a Contributions wikigroup, using the
recipe authorcontribution.php, which was FORMERLY downloadable from
is more complex than the 4 lines that now appear on that cookbook
page, and I can forward it if anyone would find that useful).
