first, a compliment for the developers of XWiki, it seems to be well
done and very promissing. I just starting using XWiki. I created a wiki
at XWiki.com and now downloaded it to first run it at my localhost then
later at my server.
I have a couple of short question. Please forgive me if they are
obvious questins or if they have been posted and discussed already.
1. When I start XWiki at localhost, I seem to be logged in. I see
"Hello Ashraf" on the upper right corner. There is not an Edit function
under "More Actions" link though, so I can not edit or add pages. I
registerd a new user, logged in with the new account but it is the
same, cann't edit either. Why that? What should I change in order to be
able to edit contents of pages?
Note, I can edit pages if i am logged in as admin.
2. In the installation instructions, it says: * The default admin
user is Admin with password admin. Is it possible to change those
3. Surfing around in Xwiki, online as well as local, seems to be slow!
is Java responsible for that? Why? I've seen other java-based wikis
that are faster than this!
4. How can I remove users ? is it possible at all?
I too have an XWiki install locally and think it's great...

I just checked and get the same results on mine so I figure that's normal for out of the box, so I think you need to create rights:
thanks for the reply. I missed the HowDoesRightsWork page before. Now I got it. That brought me to another question though.
I am looking at the user's Access Level table, (got there by hitting Admin >XWiki.XWikiUsers > XWiki.user ) before this user has been given edit privileges, The table looks like:
What does that mean, why is there an "edit" in the access level column although the user can not edit anything at this stage?
Giving user edit permission by admin does not change the entries in the table at all!!
Should it not be view instead of edit before? Or the entries have a different meaning than whau I am thinking.
can be tricky. "XWiki.XWikiGuest" and "XWiki.XWikiAllGroup" are opposites but in some cases the all-group must be added along side groups that you create in rights objects, so those 2 entities are not equal by usage.
So you might need to add "XWiki.XWikiAllGroup" to the rights object you were testing with.
