That's exactly what I needed.

I still think that the initial configuration could be a bit more restrictive.

Thanks much

Subject: Immediate spamming
Just after installing dokuwiki on my hosted site I noticed about 20-30 fake users registered within minutes of the install completing.  I know my site is cool, but there's no way it's that cool.  Besides, while the user emails had first/last names they didn't match the given names of the user.

Kudos to the user admin and configuration pages.  They made the defense and cleanup really easy.  It just made me wonder (especially after going through the registration process here) whether dokuwiki user registration could use captchas and/or links sent through the given email addresses. 

thanks

- Chris
