Contacts and Users
Contacts in Twyne represent post Authors, and can also be made into site Users. When a new Twyne site is installed an initial Contact and matching User are created, with full admin rights for everything.
All Contacts have a name, homepage URL, and two descriptions (one public, one private). Contacts that are also site users have, in addition, a username and email address, and a set of user groups that they belong to.
Creating a Contact
There are various ways to create a new Contact:
Go to ‘Contacts’ in the main menu, and then the ‘New contact’ link.
When editing a post, or in the upload form, the author field is free-text. If an unknown author name is used, a new Contact will be created.
Registering a new user account will result in a matching Contact being created.
All users are identified by their username, and authenticate with a password. Two-factor authentication is also enabled by default, requiring the use of an TOTP app.
If a user loses their 2FA credentials, their account can be reset by using the reset command, e.g.:
./bin/console twyne:reset-2fa --username alice
This will force then to re-register a 2FA device.
