View Full Version : Repository cannot handle file names with embedded spaces?
Is it documented that you cannot place files with names that contain embedded spaces into the Remository? We keep getting 'File Not Found' errors when attempting to download documents out of the remository, but only on the ones whose names contain embedded spaces.
Thanks for assistance!!
We're having the same probelm. There is no good solution that i can find. DocMan handles spaces by replacing them with underscores, which works fine, but there are other thing i don't like about docman... what a stupid little problem to have with Remository, so much programming, most everything else works fine, why can't they do the same trick DocMan does to fix the blank spaces???? :eek:
I suppose all the other hundreds of users out there don't have embedded spaces in filenames. Go figure. :thumbsdow
the author could somehow replace spaces with %20 which is html for a space :D would be a good idea i belive.
just don't have any embedded spaces in your files :)
wich version do you have of repository?
hm i just looked at the code. it will take me 2 hours then i can release an patch for it.
i will work on it on weekend
cu have a good time
Well I work for a large medical software development company that has thousands of application design specifications in the form of Word documents, PDF documents, Powerpoint Presentations and more. With all the technology going on here, they would laugh my *** right out of the building if I told them not to embed spaces in the document names because the Mambo Repository can't handle it.
I do appreciate your time in fixing this problem.
Ok I have our intranet installation on version 2.02 of Remository and I still cannot upload files with embedded spaces. I have several hundred people waiting to upload a tremendous amount of development and design documents into this system and now I have to delay it. Please tell me there is a fix for this unnecessary problem.
The latest version of Remository handles files with spaces (I think). My tests have included such files, although not such a wide range of them as to be absolutely certain of all cases. But it works well enough on samples for it to be worth a more extensive trial. See http://mamboforge.net/projects/remository or http://www.black-sheep-research.com.
I installed Docman instead. It works.
Your choice - but Remository works too!
