#11551 closed (duplicate)

URL not parsing file locator

Reported by: Adam Nelson Owned by: nobody
Component: Forms Version: 1.0
Severity: Keywords: validation url
Cc: Triage Stage: Unreviewed
Has patch: no Needs documentation: no
Needs tests: no Patch needs improvement: no
Easy pickings: no UI/UX: no



When trying to save a form, the error 'Enter a valid URL.' appears for file:///Users/adam/blah.html


Either an error "file:// is not valid" should appear (for safety reasons?) or it should be allowed. The generic error message isn't true because file:// is a valid URL descriptor.


I've attached a preliminary patch. Ideally we would use a library but I see that there's not easy and robust way to do this with standard Python.

I respectfully disagree as #6092 is 2 years old and is actually a large enhancement. This patch (or something similar) is simply a minor change to allow the file:// resource handler without changing anything else (i.e. this should be approvable/disapprovable quickly - the other is a major change).
