Probably a bug

  • #9946

    I was building a post in the WYSIWYG editor and went to add a picture. A picture of my cat.  (yes, I am one of those.)

    The picture was in a folder on my Linux desktop machine, the folder’s name is #Caturday.

    Publii could not complete this action.  It hung on “Uploading…”

    When I restarted the process and renamed the folder Caturday, the upload was immediately successful.

    The best practice for naming folders is probably to avoid using ‘special’ characters like #. Why: these could be used for special operations deep inside the Linux operating system. More details at: . As you discovered, when you removed the # character, you resolved the problem.

    Wow.  I report a bug in a software and your response is, I am using my operating system wrong?

    GThumb opens pictures from that folder just fine, TYVM.

    I have tested such case on macOS and Windows – it is not a problem to use “#” character in the folder name during file upload – I have checked featured image and upload to the content.

    Maybe it is an issue related to your specific linux distribution, but for sure it is not a general problem
