     4 The %TOPIC% has been added to TWiki 4.2.0 to make it possible to login without needing to create a TWiki User,
       
     5 or to temporarily login as %TOPIC% using the password set in configure, and then log back out to the same User and Group as before.
       
     6 
       
     7 This means it is no longer necessary to add yourself to the TWikiAdminGroup, and you will be able to quicky
       
     8 change to Admin User (and back to your user) only when you need to.

    12    * Login as the internal TWiki administrator:
       
    13       * %ADMINLOGIN%
       
    14    * Logout from Administrator:

    16 
       
    17 __%X% NOTE:__ If you lock yourself out of <nop>TWikiAdminUser during setup activities or have forgotten the configure password,
       
    18 you can unset the configure password by editing the =lib/LocalSite.cfg= file and deleting the line that starts
       
    19 with =$TWiki::cfg{Password}= and then set it again by saving your settings in =configure=.
