TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
So, I downloaded a "free" trial version of Confluence and started setting up
the wiki. Then, I decided to take a lunch break and several hours later, I
still can't get back in. The user name/password combination I set up (and
the same ones that allowed me to bail out and re-access it prior to my
break) no longer work. I am supposed to review it's "user friendliness and
flexibility" for a state agency that will deploy it as part of a product
they have developed in several other states. On the surface, I appears that
it won't work as it is no user friendly and if I can't even log in with the
user name and password I set up, how can this agency expect it's "customers"
to use the application? Has anyone else had similar problems with Confluence
and how did you solve them, other than going to another vendor.
It's now 11:30 pm and I've been at the keyboard since 8:00 am completing
several other projects in addition to trying to review Confluence, so the
frustration level is a bit on the high side at the moment.
