Description Sandy Dolphinaura 2011-02-02 19:21:33 UTC
Version:           1.0 (using KDE 4.6.0) 
OS:                Linux

After setting the URL shortener to "Yourls", Inputting the YOURLS API url, username, and password, Choqok would not shorten the URL, claiming "Invalid Username or Password".

The username/password combination is correct, I used the same combination to login to the YOURLS control panel

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set url shortener to "yourls"
2. Enter in API URL
3. Enter in username/password
4. Shorten Link

Actual Results:  
KDE showed a notification saying "invalid username or passowrd"

Expected Results:  
URL should have been shortened

I confirm this bug on version 1.1 of Choqok
It does not send the password in the GET request, the field is simply empty (I checked with wireshark)

Better use a signature token. And I can confirm, it won't work as it is. I checked the server log.

Dirty patch to make it work

The "password" variable didn't seem initialized. I copied the init function code to just before the variable is being used.

Works for me, but is not to be merged ;-)

The 'dirty patch' works for me. First time I've seen the yourls plugin actually work. w00t! ;)
