Changing visibility to password-protected without entering a password does not warn user
|Reported by:||markel||Owned by:||kapeels|
Tested on r15182.
If the status of a post is set to Password Protected, and a password is not specified before the user clicks the OK button in visibility and then either publishes, saves, or updates the post, no warning is given to the user that not setting a password forces the post or page to remain Public.
In fact, if updating a post, and this is the only change made, the success message (1) for updating the post appears instead, even though no change was made to the post.
If the post was previously published as Private, and switched to Password Protected without entering a password, then saved, the post switches to Public on save instead of remaining Private.
Either a failure message upon updating or a warning to the user before saving should be displayed to the user to remind them that they didn't properly set a password.
To reproduce the last case above:
- Create a post. Publish it as Private.
- Edit the post. Change the visibility to Password Protected, but do not enter a password. Click OK.
- Update the post.
- The post visibility will be changed to Public.
