in reply to XPD - Do more with your PerlMonks XP

Hello cavac,

I tried to register for fun but I received back some error: I filled in anything but the family name in the form ( using as name Discipulus ), I've put the temp code in my homenode but I received back Could not find a valid homenode!

I tried to login anyway and received back a login error, but I noticed the username turned to lowercase.


PS 11:38 GMT+1 I confirm that I registered and logged in succesfully: fast bug fixer!!

    Oh, i think that's different from the "missing session cookie" bug i just fixed. Give me a few minutes.

    Edit: Ok, the Homenode parsing was a bit wonky. Should work now... i hope.

    In addition to that, there was a bug with the session cookies. When you are not logged in, you are supposed to get a session cookie for user guest for the Register form. That worked, unless you used the direct link to the form. *facepalm* This should now work as expected.

    Edit 2: As for the Username going lowercase, i'll look into that as well.. Usernames with uppercase letters should now work. If there are still problems, post a bug report here.

    perl -e 'use Crypt::Digest::SHA256 qw[sha256_hex]; print substr(sha256_hex("the Answer To Life, The Universe And Everything"), 6, 2), "\n";'
