Getting Access and Log In

After successfully installing MediaWiki, Semantic MediaWiki and the Cicero extension on your server, you can now start using the features of Cicero. The Main page of MediaWiki is the place where you get the first time in touch with the Cicero extension. Here, Cicero provides a dynamically updated list of all existing projects in its installation. This way it is easy to access the different projects.

To log into the Wiki press the link on the upper right corner of the main page. It will show you an interface to put in your user name and password. If you don't have an account yet, create one (click on the appropriate link). While creating a new account you have to specify an email address. An email will be send to you containing a link for the verification of the new account. This address will also be used for notifications later on.

Note that in the default settings of MediaWiki users are not allowed to create their own user accounts. Normally a MediaWiki-user with the rights of a Bureaucrat needs to create them. In Cicero, this default setting of MediaWiki is overwritten, so that any user can create its own account. See the Subsection about Cicero Settings if you want to restore the default behavior.

After you have successfully logged into the system you will be redirected to the main page. To log out use the corresponding link of the personal menu on the top of the page.
