The other thing that I cannot find how to make the text to be visible in the whole column (as with the summary I get the ... at some point of the text).

The root of this is found in scripts/index.php in function tpl_draw_cell():

case 'summary':
            $value = tpl_tasklink($task, utf8_substr($task['item_summary'], 0, 55));
            if (utf8_strlen($task['item_summary']) > 55) {
                $value .= '...';
            }
            break;

We live in a world now, where the view port ranges from 320 pixel width mobile screens up to 4k+ wide tv screens, the amount of columns is configurable from minimal to all available fields of a task. We currently let the browser automatic decide how wide he renders each column depending on table content and available window size.

Well, that ellipsis problem can be handled at different levels:

  • motivate the task creators to use short task summary if possible (e.g. show a hint/tooltip when typing the summary gets over a limit, in our case the hardcoded limit is 55. ). Short task topic/summaries are easier to read/scan for the users.
  • replace the hard ellipsis by a pure css solution, that adapts to users browserwindow size/space in in the columns for summary
  • drop the ellipsis thing complete, task summary always shown full length, table rows adapt in height automatically.

Possible CSS solution:

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...

2649Installer and UpgraderFeature RequestLowDocker Container: is there a way to hook into the setup...Unconfirmed
0%
1011.08.202127.08.2021 Task Description

Hi, in my free time of the last few days I begun developping a Docker container: https://github.com/blu-base/flyspray-docker. I derived it from a nextcloud docker container… For now, I limited my focus on an apache/debian buster container. I’d be happy to contribute the project to the official placeholder when it is ready.

Anyhow, in the entrypoint script, I use some environment variables to create the flyspray.conf.php from scratch. and would now need to populate the database. I understand i have to use the respective xml scheme as the setup/index.php does.


I am not experienced with php and database applications and would like to ask you for advice how to proceed efficiently.

Since the current setup is indented to be interactive in the browser, i would need to use a cli tool or a purposely-build php script to do the same task on the command line/on container startup. But this seems to me this would be code duplication and introduce more maintenance work.

  • Is it possible to hook into only some of the functions of the setup/index.php?
  • What could be the next best approach to populate the db on first start?
  • Would it be a viable solution in trying to further modularize the setup - allowing to run parts on cli, like nextcloud’s occ tool?

PHP 8.0 is now released (2020-11-26) and Flyspray should be made compatible with it.

  • Replace removed and deprecated functions with alternatives in our source code.
  • Upgrade used libraries or make used libraries compatible:
    • post github issue or pull requests for ADODB
    • upgrade used dokuwiki or make changes in our integration (probably just review our as official dokuwiki project contains too much stuff we do not need and changed much)
    • review used geshi
    • upgrade our swiftmailer version to PHP8 compatible version
    • upgrade our oauth2-client stuff to PHP8 compatible version
  • The @ operator no longer silences fatal errors. Some checks in installer or other areas might not work anymore as expected when the @-operator was used as silencer for previous PHP versions.

From mailing list:

Hello,

I could not find if this was already posted before. We have this basic profile where customers only can create new tasks and receive some notifications when the status or details change. The idea is that they do not see the comments, we want to use them for internal communication.
The think is that we just realized that they can not see the comments when they login but they receive them as notifications by email!

We want this notification for the admin users involved in the task but not for the customers. Is there a way to correct this behavior?

Thanks,
Manu

2636Installer and UpgraderBug ReportHighFailure to upgrade 1.0-rc9 to 1.0-rc10 (mariadb 10.4.18...Assigned
50%
peterdd1.0-rc11729.04.202123.07.2021 Task Description

I administer a moderate-sized (~14K ticket) 1.0-rc9 instance running on a Fedora 32 host (php 7.4.16, mariadb 10.4.18) Following the upgrade instructions (ie transfer attachments, avatars, flyspray.conf.php) the setup/upgrade tool loads, and prompts me to upgrade.

It churns a while before refreshing the screen, claiming a successful 1.0-rc10 upgrade. However, the upgrade seems to not actually “stick”, because clicking on the “return” button I’m dropped back into the upgrader, which is once again claiming I’m running 1.0-rc9 and prompting me to perform the -rc10 upgrade.

According to Flyspray’s admin ‘checks’ tab:

* PHP 7.4.16
* MariaDB 10.4.18
* default_charset: utf8mb4
* default_collation: utf8mb4_unicode_ci
* All tables are ‘InnoDB’

There are no errors logged that I can find, but the upgrade is clearly not working. If I revert to the -rc9 php files, everything continues along as if nothing was done.

Any suggestions?

2644Backend/CoreFeature RequestMediummark specific task as spam and punish user account who ...New
0%
08.07.202108.07.2021 Task Description

For users with administrative permissions, a moderation UI for spam tasks could be useful.

For other normal users a “mark as spam”-button (similiar to voting for a task) could help moderators to identify spam tasks.

  1. Modify the spam task: Move to a hidden “Trash” project, replace summary and description with a default spam summary text end empty description.
  2. The decision which kind of punishment of the account who created the spam depends on several things:
    • Is it a previously normal used account who got captured by a bad guy and suddenly started spamming?
    • Is it a fresh bot created account who tried creating many spam task to promote bad websites or do search ranking manipulation?
    • Is it a sneaky smart account who waits for the opportunity to offload spam in a subtile manner?

I think this is not so easy to automate without producing false positives, especially for a project without commercial interest and funding and no huge meta informations like Google or similiar data collecting corporation who have the ability to identify spam waves across the internet.

2643Backend/CoreInformationLowUnable to delete a wrong TaskUnconfirmed
0%
407.07.202108.07.2021 Task Description

Today I received a Spam into my Flyspray, I wanted to ban the user and to delete the task, to my surprise I didn’t see an option to -delete- a created task, so I don’t want to keep this spammy content into my DB or even worse, publically viewable to other users / or google (which will impact in seo and also make their spamming successful forever), I just wanted to simply remove the task entirely from the DB

So my only option was to restore the 2-days before database backup in order to remove it, then I upgraded to the last git checkout but I didn’t see that option existing

I think flyspray needs to have that option included

Thank you

2639JavascriptBug ReportMediumUnable to "deny" a pending requestResearching
0%
peterdd712.05.202113.06.2021 Task Description

My project has 37 pending requests. Each has a set of Accept / Deny buttons next to it.

If I click on Deny, a textbox pops up for me to enter “Reason for denial” but the entire page immediately regreshes/reloads back to the task list before I have a chance to enter the reason and submit it.

I can always “Accept” the request implicitly by going to the appropriate task and closing/re-opening it, but there’s no way to “deny” something without going through this UI path.

Tags can only be added on the “new task” page, not managed on the “edit task”-page. done

  • The information when a tag is added or removed and by whom logged through flyspray_history table is still TODO.
  • The information when a tag is added by whom is visible when hovering over it in the task details view
  • Tags are now also searched by the submitted search string when doing a task search.
  • In addition to the project level ‘free tagging’ which allows users create new tag names there exists also a use_tags permission per project. This is currently only used on some of the appropriate locations.

peterdd1.0-rc11729.04.202105.05.2021 Task Description

I administer a small personal (<1K ticket) 1.0-rc9 instance running on a Fedora 32 host (php 7.4.16, postgresql 12.6) Following the upgrade instructions (ie transfer attachments, avatars, flyspray.conf.php) the setup/upgrade tool loads, and prompts me to upgrade.

Unfortunately, the upgrade fails spectacularly, with a reported SQL error that belies what’s actually wrong. Here’s a snippet from the postgresql logs where the upgrade is failing:

2021-04-28 10:33:07.190 EDT [2032049] ERROR: column “attachment_id” of relation “flyspray_attachments” already exists
2021-04-28 10:33:07.190 EDT [2032049] STATEMENT: ALTER TABLE flyspray_attachments ADD COLUMN attachment_id SERIAL
2021-04-28 10:33:07.194 EDT [2032049] ERROR: current transaction is aborted, commands ignored until end of transaction block
2021-04-28 10:33:07.194 EDT [2032049] STATEMENT: ALTER TABLE flyspray_attachments ADD COLUMN task_id INTEGER
[…and everything else fails because the transaction aborted…]

It appears that the upgrade script is blindly trying to create columns that already exist in the -rc9 database, and postgresql is treating this as a failure. Because the entire upgrade happens within one transaction, this means the entire upgrade fails at the outset and won’t ever succeed.

The way past this specific problem is to make these ALTER TABLE operations conditional (eg “ALTER TABLE flyspray_attachments ADD COLUMN IF NOT EXISTS task_id INTEGER”).
