2337DocumentationInformationLowFlyspray ThemesNew
402.02.201716.02.2017 Task Description
  • Flyspray 1.0 includes 1 default theme CleanFS. That decision was made to reduce maintainance effort and the old blue theme was dropped. Also the CleanFS contains UI-logic implemented in HTML/CSS and tries to be usable even for the people who turned off javascript in their web browsers for security reasons. (and reduces spam on many other websites too without an adblocker)
  • Current Flyspray source and the theme CleanFS provides several methods to customize the layout without touching the .tpl files. These are:
    1. custom_*.css files that extend or overwrite properties of CleanFS/theme.css
    2. 2 fields in admin area where to put code

      For instance a corporate footer menu or something like that.

Advantages of CleanFS instead running your own

  • Theme is maintained with Flyspray source. Detected security issues related with themes are fixed with Flyspray releases.
  • Added features or capabilities are implemented for the default theme.

‘Subtheme’ can be a compromise: Theme CleanFS is always uptodate in sync with Flyspray. Subthemer only needs to check changes required for own subtheme .tpl files.

I do not want complete stop people from writing their whole new template, it allows new ideas implemented or alternative usability. For them, it is probably better to create a Github project for that theme.

This is just raw info from me and can be discussed. Something should be finally written on in the documentation area.

2568DocumentationBug ReportMedium[MANUAL] a missing image in "Understanding Permissions:...Unconfirmed
101.09.201902.09.2019 Task Description

In the page , it is written

Shown is an image of the permissions page for the Flyspray project’s Contributors group

but there is no image in there.

I can think of two ways of dealing with that I guess:

  1. add an image
  2. remove the sentence

What do you think?

Here I will put some sql examples for the current developers to have a base for testings:

Starting with a default installation with its 1 example project and 1 example task:

I hope we can put all this into valuable phpunit tests for automatic testing with travis-ci.

Still TODO, do not use:
After fresh Flyspray install, add some more projects:

INSERT INTO flyspray_tasks (project_id,task_type,item_status, supertask_id, item_summary) SELECT 3,1,1,FLOOR(RAND()*11),RAND() FROM flyspray_tasks;

These Examples can be used for finding bottle necks or problems on huge installations.

2014Database QueriesFeature RequestVery LowAdd MS SQL Server as database backendMaybe
2120.07.201530.07.2015 Task Description

My company maybe changes to a MS SQL Server backed ERP.

In this case it could be nice to have Flyspray customized as CRM working on the same database for integration with ERP.

Well, currently just an idea.

2304Database QueriesBug ReportMediumGreek letters crash tagsConfirmed
126.10.201626.10.2016 Task Description

When adding a tag in Greek letters (e.g. “Δοκιμή”) I get:

Query {SELECT tag_id FROM `flyspray_list_tag` WHERE (project_id=0 OR project_id=?) AND tag_name LIKE ? ORDER BY project_id} with params {5,Δοκιμή} Failed! (Illegal mix of collations (latin1_swedish_ci,IMPLICIT) and (utf8_general_ci,COERCIBLE) for operation ‘like’)

2606Database QueriesFeature RequestLowduedate column sort asc in tasklist should put unset du...New
02.05.202002.05.2020 Task Description

When a tasklist contains the duedate column and the user sorts by duedate ascending, the tasks that do not have a duedate set should not be listed first. Instead they should be listed after the tasks with duedates.

This way a user can see the task with the earliest duedate first instead of seeing a bunch of probably not so important tasks without duedates set.

1539Backend/CoreFeature RequestLowSitemap.xml GenerationUnconfirmed
2.12112.01.200911.03.2015 Task Description

I would like the feature to have a sitemap.xml file be generated, say every xx days, set in the configuration.

407Backend/CoreFeature RequestMediumPlugin systemConfirmed
2.0261404.12.200417.01.2013 Task Description

Everything is currently hard-coded. Create a plugin system that allows a module to be simply "dropped into" a plugins/ directory, enabled in the options, and have the plugin just work.

Possibilities might include alternative methods of notification, perhaps a documentation subsystem, or even simple things like voting for tasks.

The user should NOT have to edit existing Flyspray source code to make a plugin work.

1237Backend/CoreFeature RequestMediumAllow Multiple Owners Per CategoryPlanned
2.04709.04.200710.08.2015 Task Description

Currently, only one owner can be applied per category (at least, that's what the tooltip implies). The ability to add more than one user, a user group, or a mix of the two to a category would be ideal.

Often times, more than one programmer will work on and maintain a feature that cannot be divided into subcategories with the various programmers dispersed accordingly. In such cases, setting all such programmers as owners of the category is beneficial in that they will all receive notifications.

Also, having a parent category's owner receive alerts if no owners are specified for a sub-category benefits from this ability. I may have a "User Interface" group that has all of my UI developers in it; assigning the group to the "User Interface" root category means all relevant developers find out about a new issue that was not directed elsewhere.

One potential conflict does arise with another Flyspray feature. If "Auto-assign a task to the category owner" is enabled, care must be taken to assign no users or the first user to the task; personally, I would prefer no one being assigned and seeing the wording changed to "Auto-assign a task to sole category owners". Worst case scenario would be another option asking if no one or the first user would be assigned to a task in that instance; if a group is specified, the first user in the group would be chosen.

1612Backend/CoreFeature RequestLowAllow Comments by anonymous UsersUnconfirmed
2.02120.10.200917.01.2013 Task Description

I would love a option to allow anom users to write comments! Maybe with CAPCHA...
I allow anom users to report bugs, but when I have a question to this bug, or the reporter wants to make a additions, he has to register...

I tried hacking it in the core: In the class.user.php at the end of the get_perms method I added:
$this→perms[$proj_id]['add_comments'] = 1;

But I has nothing changed. The I removed the check if the user had the right to make a comment in the template file, now I have a comment field for everyone, but anom user get a error message saying, that they should enter a comment... I searched a lot in the core files, but I don´t find the point where the comment a written in the database... I would a great help if you could give at least a hint :)

Another thing i tried was changing the user contructor, that every user with a negative ID get the ID 2, witch is a special "anom" user. But then you could not log out, a the admin not in...

2.01227.07.201225.10.2016 Task Description

Hey Flyspray Team,

a nice feature would be to see which user commented recently on a task.
This could be a simple new column in the tasks list view.

2.01116.08.201204.08.2015 Task Description

it is possible to change the layout for notification mails?
I'll put our logo into Mail body and I'll format the text in different font-styles.

Thank you!

1782Backend/CoreFeature RequestLowCustom fields on taskPlanned
2.033327.11.201207.01.2020 Task Description

A very useful feature would be to be able to manage a list of custom fields by project, and to be able to add and fill any of these fields to any task.
So we could be able to search on the presence and content of a field.
We could be able to sort the tasks by this field when they are displayed in a list.

A use example is when you create a bug by reference to another external list. It can be very useful to have a field that references a line in the external list.

1798Backend/CoreFeature RequestLowBounty System New
2.0113.12.201206.03.2015 Task Description

Add a system where people can donate towards a specific task. For example, I want to donate $10 if someone implements gravatars. The money sits in a pool, and then when someone claims that task and it is marked as completed by the admin, they get the bounty (less some commission that goes towards the project).

2.05217.01.201312.08.2015 Task Description

Should be able to reference a ticket # when committing code, and then have a way to input your repository path to flyspray, and let it search all your commits for ticket #'s. Then should parse it, and have a link to that commit within the ticket.

1819Backend/CoreFeature RequestLowCommunicate via emailPlanned
2.08317.01.201318.10.2016 Task Description

Need to be able to email back and forth to communicate with flyspray. Ideally flyspray can be CC'ed on an email or can replay to a notification which would add the body and/or attachments to the thread. This goes back to reworking the way people interact with and view tickets
