#1140 closed defect (wontfix)

images do not work when site requires authentication

Reported by: eric@… Owned by: athomas
Priority: normal Component: PageToPdfPlugin
Severity: normal Keywords: attachments permissions
Cc: Trac Release: 0.10


htmldoc does not know how to authenticate to sites requiring a login and
password, which a Trac installation I use requires.

Therefore it's better to use absolute local paths ('file://' won't work
for htmldoc, either).

I have a quick and dirty patch attached (w/hardcoded attachment path)
that works for me. Somebody more familiar with Trac and Python
should be able to modify it to support all repositories.

Another workaround is to configure your webserver not to ask for authentication when coming from the host itself. For example:

<Location "/trac">

Order Deny,Allow
Deny from all
Allow from
Satisfy Any


Where is the ip that the plugin is trying to access via http. This is what I am currently using and appears to be the easiest solution for me, since no users can open up a browser from the server itself.
