I understand the problem now.
After Bruce's message I tried my email username and password with the
same results as you.
The username and password work fine in mailman.
Since I created my wiki account a long time ago I use that. It works fine.

What happens when a new username and password is entered in the
"Special Page" boxes?
I get this message:
There is no user by the name "Myusername". Check your spelling, or use
the form below to create a new user account.

I do not see any "form below" to use? How do I get logged in as a new user?

The excellent "Help" pages no longer seem to work. They are blank even
if logged in.
