[popfetcher] external Service not available

Post by bernd_d » Tue Dec 30, 2014 3:21 pm

POPfetcher is able to be configured as "external service" so it can be called through a secret URL like

Code: Select all

https://bernd.distler.ws/index.php?/plugin/bernd_popfetcher_1234567
Like docs say, there should be an output from this call, but in my case it is empty and mails are not fetched from POP3. Maybe the URL is wrong, but i don't know where the error could be.

Internal call for fetching mails is working as it should.


ps: There is another problem with umlauts, that are not encoded correctly (talked with Garvin one year ago about), maybe we could fix this tool ;-)

Hi!

You cannot use "_" in the URL. Use "-" and all should be well. It says "Underscores are not allowed" in the description. ;)

Which one? I do not recall this.

Doh! :oops:
Maybe the help text should be extended about this?

Would be nice if we could validate the input with a html5 pattern atribute.
