0.7.17RC2 Password input broken

Post by FCrane »

Hi!

I just installed 0.7.17RC2 and it looks like the password input is broken! Neither entering "Name/Password" nor "Name{{Password}} for the download name seems to work anymore! In RC1, it was ok.

Where can I download RC1? RC2 is completely unusable for me because of the password bug.

Regards!

Entering name/password has been replaced with separate boxes for name and password.
Files with {{password}} in the file name still work fine.

But this is a catastrophe! It was extremely convenient to copy the whole "name / password" string from a forum and simply paste it into the name field in Sabnzbd! Please do not remove this feature!!! It is the main reason I did not switch to NZBGet.

Please tell me where I can find RC1, because I will stay with RC1 if that important feature will not be supported in newer versions anymore.

Thanks.

RC1 is in the same place as RC2, on SourceForge.net

Thanks! Please consider bringing back the feature to decode "name/password" and "name{{password}}" in the download name field as it used to work in previous versions, because this is extremely practical (saves a few clicks each time).

Thanks!

It's also the cause of a lot of problems because it limits the range of password characters.
I'll see what's possible.

Hey I just want to add some information about RC2 Passwords.
I added an Audiobook nzb yesterday... it's name was something like: "releasegroup}}Title and Artist{{www.nzb.com"
The release itself was rared without password, but sabnzbd tried so extract with the PW: "Title and Artist" and so I got an error...

Maybe add an option so that the user can select if the names should be parsed for passwords? In my case, the passwords never contain any / or {{}}, so it's no problem for me. Many people know about the special meaning of the characters in Sabnzbd, so they don't use it for the passwords anyway.

Thanks!

That's not good. That specific syntax should not trigger password recognition.

I experiencing the problem that filenames that are too long being cut of... Including the password at the end.
Is this related? This happens since RC2.

Edit:
Just realized ... the password inside the {{}} is not taken as password ... So nevermind the thing i said before.

I cannot reproduce your problem.
SABnzbd will only extract a password for names like "blabla{{pw}}.nzb".
So the password construction is at the end and only at the end.
Note that this may still give a problem when no password was intended.

My nzb is not namend like xxxxxx{{pass}}.nzb
My nzb is a randomly generated alphanumerical code like "saabw4vt89vb0ww.nzb"
In RC1 i can paste the name and the password in the name field of the sabnzb ui, the password is inside the {{}} at the end of the string.
Like this one: xxx.xxxxxxx.xxxx.xxxxxx.xxxxxxxx.xxxxxx.xxxx.x.x.xx.xxxxx.xxx-xx.xxxx.xxxxxxx{{xxxxxx-xxxx.xxxx_xxxxxxxxxxxx}}

In RC1 it will find the password and the name of the file is:
xxx.xxxxxxx.xxxx.xxxxxx.xxxxxxxx.xxxxxx.xxxx.x.x.xx.xxxxx.xxx-xx.xxxx.xxxxxxx / xxxxxx-xxxx.xxxx_xxxxxxxxxxxx

In RC2 it will be:
xxx.xxxxxxx.xxxx.xxxxxx.xxxxxxxx.xxxxxx.xxxx.x.x.xx.xxxx

Without password etc and just shortend.

Ok, now I see what you mean.
That password support was removed from the AddNZB dialog box.
Passwords are now set in the details page afterwards.
I'll see if I can put a password box in the AddNZB dialog.

[quote="houston_"]
In RC2 it will be:
xxx.xxxxxxx.xxxx.xxxxxx.xxxxxxxx.xxxxxx.xxxx.x.x.xx.xxxx
/quote]

In RC2, if you enter the name/password combo in the "name box" at the bottom of the "Add NZB" dialog,
things will work just fine.
Make sure that the name and the password are separated by a slash / and
only the file name, not the password, will be shortened.

If you see this not happening, can you email some screenshots?

I download the nzb with the sabconnect++ for chrome (nzbclub)
most of the times they are not really named, just random numbers etc
then i go to the sab gui, search for the new entry, click it, rename it with the name incl password, save
after that the name of the entry in the queue is either cut (if too long) or the password is just not found and still inside the {{}} behind the whole name.

i dont use the add nzb dialog.

This way works in 7.16 RC1, but not in RC2.
I will try 7.17 now

Edit: In 7.17 still not. Making screenshots :)
