Steps to reproduce

This bug tracker does not appear to allow you to attach two files with the same name. In order to test which, I will attach a file called “test.txt” now and its content will be "test 1". Then I will attach a second file called “test.txt” with content "test 2". If this bug does exist, there will only be one file attached to the bug (and I am guessing its content will be "test 2".

  • I guessed wrong: the second “test.txt” is simply discarded.

    Immediately after uploading it is visible as in there are two “test.txt” links under "Attachments". Clicking on the second link does not work as expected: it causes a server error.

  • Hello,

    Thanks for the feedback on the new bug tracker. Both of the text files provided seem to work as expected based on my testing. I think maybe it was still processing the files you uploaded at first which resulted in the error.

    If you try to open them this time, do you still get the same error?  As it stands now both internally and externally the text files open as expected.

    All the best,

  • So I’m now uploading a third test file. I will report what I see after the upload finishes.

  • You’re right: it is now working as expected, which is odd as this issue has happened at least twice to me before I opened the bug and it also happened while opening the bug… oh well, as long as it works now, and continues to do so, I’m happy :)

  • Glad to hear it’s working as expected. Thanks!
