**STE **

The error messages should be more descriptive than they are.


This error pops up if there is a problem with validating the username and API key for connections to the Wikidot API (i.e. click on "Use my Wikidot account" and forget to enter one of the values, or enter an incorrect API key).

A better message would be "There seems to be a problem with your Wikidot API settings - most likely you are attempting to use an invalid API key (this can happen if you regenerate it at but forget to update it in STE)."

This has been fixed in version 3, but I didn't explicitly mention it in the list of changes. Marking as done.

Included page "inc:signature" does not exist (create it now)
