Passwords on downloads [Fixed in 2.5.17]
« on: 03.12.2014 16:45:18 »
I add a password to a file in additional data and save.

When I attempt to download the file on the front end, I am asked for the password and it is entered.  Once I hit enter, the box becomes empty and nothing happens.

Please advise.

Thanks

Here is my test result with the last version 2.5.17. See pics.
I can not see any problems.

Are you sure that the used password is correct?
When not must you see a hint like this on the last pic.

Arno

I sent you a PM about this, but the Passwords are still not functioning for me.  I am using the .18b build.

I enter a password in the back end. (image 1)

I then go to the front end to the file with the password.  (image 2)

Type password (image 3)

No Luck - the password field resets with no comment on the screen(image 4)

I do not have the mass downloads turned on.

Any help would be appreciated

Thanks
Larry

Hi,
can you please activate before you start your test the debug option in Joomla config?
Maybe get you then a hint...

I have it tested again in the last minute with 3.2.18 and 2.5.18. No problem found!
So i can not understand your problem really.  ::)

Maybe can you send me login data for your backend via PM?

Hi Larry,
okay i have found the problem.
It has to do with your activated cache option in Joomla global config. See pic.

When i have deactivated this option it is possible to use the password feature.
But i know in the moment not really why it will not work with activated cache.  ::)

Cool thanks

I have no idea what that setting does so I guess it can stay off

I have add now two new options in the jD system plugin (in 2.5.19/3.2.19 see pic).
When you have updated to this new version can you use again the caching in Joomla.  ;)

This was not really a bug, but general a problem with caching and checking input fields.
