FS#240 Blank password only logs into one page
ACL & Authentication
Tried to create a simple acl with blank password (using md5 of empty string from dokuwiki suggested encoder web page). I could login ok but login was lost as soon as I went to another page - including the edit page. Problem went away when I changed from "" to "hello" as the password. Really just want acl to tag edits with usernames not to restrict access which is why I wanted blank passwords.
Forgot to say using Apache 2.0 on NetBsd, Firefox 1.0.2 on Windows XP Pro
Well the real bug is that you can login to one page without a password ;-) The thing you want to do should be implemented by an own auth file which does no password checking at all. Empty password aren't a good idea in my opinion.
Sounds reasonable to me - I wasn't really expecting to get away with a blank password.
