Nvu: “Login incorrect” bug

17 Apr
April 17, 2006

Nvu is a great alternative to commercial web editors: not as full featured as Dreamweaver or FrontPage, but you can’t beat the price – free.

However, there is a bug in the Site Manager, which means that if you elect not to save the password for a site, you will receive a “Login incorrect” error message when you attempt to connect to the site, instead of a password prompt as expected.

Fortunately, the fix is simple – in the Site Manager, tick the “Save Password” box. Of course, this means that anyone with physical access to your machine (and user account) can edit the site, but it’s good general security practice to lock or log off your workstation when you’re away from it anyway.
