using 3/27 build of netscape 1) launch netscape 2) launch composer 3) enter some text 4) publish to an ftp server(with username "anonymous", page title, filename - foo.html, sitename). 5) Leave Password field blank 6) publish it'll prompt you for a passwd., give it ";sljfs" or some garbage now look at the filename in the publish progress panel. It looks like this: "foo.htm%20!"
Sujay--what did you name the file you were publishing? It looks like you tried "foo.htm " Is this publishing to marvin or some other ftp server? The "bogus password" shouldn't be relevant at all. Do you see the same problem if you use "cat;dog;cow"? I need more info to understand this bug.
If you want to use anonymous login, then you must use "anonymous" as username and your email address as password. I don't know if leaving password blank is acceptable. Doug? Bradley? I don't think we should worry much about anonymous publishing.
Not accepting a blank password is an issue I actually have a bug on - bug 130536. Its a simple fix, but the server has to be configured to accept that, so it probably won't help you. I still think that the composer publishing code should just require a username and a password. Then we can worry about how to fix ftp to let the caller handle this later, after 1.0
Bradley: I agree with you; Composer DOES try to force the user to enter a username and password before it publishes, but after we publish, we change to editing the remote url. If user has not supplied an HTTP alias in Settings panel, we are in a world of pain -- see bug 133823. It seems like the original description really makes this a dup. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 130536 ***
ok blank passwd. is covered by another bug...how about bogus passwd. though ? like something other than an email address...?
Then we die with "Login incorrect" :(
