231.03.201611.04.2016 Task Description

An assigned ticket can't be edited by a lower privileged user.

Steps to reproduce:

  • One Project, Two Users. User A is Admin, User B is Basic
  • A creates a Task.
  • A take ownership of the Task. (it’s important to do this AFTER saving the task. You cannot assign User A if you are A in this moment. Maybe another Bug...!?)
  • Now B is allowed to take ownershop too. B click now “Add me to assignees”.
  • Now B can edit the task.
  • If B click “save”, the task can’t be saved, because some fields haven’t the correct values (esp: state is now “unconfirmed”). Many error messages said, that unexpected values exist

Some weird moments:

  • Why can B edit a task? He have no rights to edit tasks...
  • If B are Basic and have “edit own Task”-Right too, this bug also exist.
2053Backend/CoreBug ReportLowambiguous user name display username / realnameNew

1.1 devel217.09.201519.02.2020 Task Description

With the existence of now two peoples named “Peter” on bugs.flyspray.org (I - peterdd , and PeterTheOne)
there are several places where the full names are display instead of usernames and the user can’t know who is which “Peter” until he visits the users profile page.

Different solutions possible:

  • more profile image/gravatar usage where user names are shown, on mouseover link title attribute shows username and realname
  • display user name (username) instead of full name (realname)
  • display full name and username (where much space available and precision needed)

When adding the mention feature, the username will be probably the prefered setting as the username is unique but the realname not.

2447Backend/CoreFeature RequestMediumAllow notifications when a new task is createdUnconfirmed
0%
226.10.201729.10.2017 Task Description

The only (only!) feature that I have missing in Flyspray is an option to receive email notifications when a new task is created

I think that this could be in the profile of the user, and/or in the main configurations as “send a notification to the -group- (admins?) when a new task is created”

Thanks a lot! flyspray r00lz after all these years, never failed, no bugs, no hacks, fast and efficient! :)

A Happy user.

2427Backend/CoreFeature RequestLowallow hotlinking (direct links) to uploaded filesUnconfirmed
0%
207.03.201709.03.2017 Task Description

Currently all attached files get renamed (like “screenshot331.png” → “attachments/14_72a4ca580abcdef69f60b1f”) and they could be downloaded only throught the php script (”/index.php?getfile=1234”) which requires that user must be logged in to view the file.
It is not very convenient when you need to show a file to some person who is on mobile phone at the moment or using not a work computer. Also sometimes you might need to share a file with anyone without having them to register at your bug tracker.

I suggest you to add a checkbox like “create a direct link” when uploading a file, which will save the file with original name and extension but adding some random generated prefix (like “screenshot331.png” → “attachments/14_72a4ca580abcdef69f60b1f.screenshot331.png”).

However this poses a high security risk so there should be a list of allowed file extensions (e.g. “jpg,png,txt,pdf,doc,zip”) - only these files could be saved with the original extension. This list should be accessible by the main administrator only, thus the safest option would be storing it inside the “flyspray.conf.php”.

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...

2089Backend/CoreBug ReportMediumadding same taskid as subtask or related task should be...New
50%
1.0207.11.201518.11.2016 Task Description

Both is a bit illogical, but both is currently possible! ;-)

1 ←- 1

So when setting the parent task id checked for creating loops is needed:

Loop with 2 tasks: 1 ←- 2 ←- 1

Loop with 3 tasks: 1 ←- 2 ←- 3 ←- 1
Loop with n tasks: 1 ←- ... ←- n < – 1

As I think there are currently no recursive reads that could lead to an endless loop, but should be kept in mind when someone wants to programm rendering a gantt chart.
E.g. by limiting the depth of subtasks for example.

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.

In the page http://www.flyspray.org/manual/group_permissions/ , 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?

1856Backend/CoreBug ReportMediumWrong timezonesResearching
0%
1327.03.201306.03.2015 Task Description

Hello,
when selecting timezone in user profile, it only offers offset based timezones. It should offer timezones like "Europe/Prague", instead, because in summer it is UTC+2 and in the winter UTC+1. Also UTC is the same as GMT.

Using offsets will cause invalid future and past times when crossing daylight saving or when something other changes.

Adding daylight checkbox is not enough and will cause additional troubles. Just use names and store them as ENUM in database, not offset. This problem is pretty complicated and the only solution is to use names and let libraries to solve it for you.

Thank you.

2215Text RenderingBug ReportLowwrong output of Geshi syntax highlighting for xml codeNew
0%
117.10.201631.12.2017 Task Description

Geshi 1.0.8.17 from https://github.com/easybook/geshi is quite slow at the current integration of Flyspray v1.0-rc3 on the first run. (But any further read uses the cache.)

But it produces garbled output for xml code highlighting:

Example without xml, just format as preformatted code:

<table>blabla</table>

Or as php syntax highlighting (even if it doesn’t contain a real php-tag ;-) ):

<table>blabla</table>

Example with xml choosen as language:

blabla

The table tag is stripped away instead of converting the tag for output inside code/pre tags (by converting the < and > chars). Maybe just a configuration issue?

115.03.201518.03.2015 Task Description

On Mac OS Safari:

I just closed a task and wrote the following into the comment for closing:

"See also F.S.#.14" (of course without the points). When I then click the link in the comment box (below the task details) I'm redirected to:
"http:/flyspray.stefan-herz%0Aog.tld/index.php?do=details&task_id=%0A14". No matter if #14 is closed or not.
It worked with Firefox.

Any suggestions?

Any form should have its submit button directly below and to the right of the form.

This is most egregious on the New Task page where you have to scroll back up to the top right to submit.

2002User InterfaceFeature RequestLowshow user role on autocomplete for verificationNew
0%
122.06.201517.10.2019 Task Description

When adding peoples with the autocompleter the name itself is not always enough, especially with a growing number of registered users.

We now have the avatar icon as helper, but for quick verification it would be easier to see also the role of the user in the current project to identify the right user account.

( The red rectangle at peterdd autocomplete row is from a broken avatar upload, ignore it for this task, see  FS#1979  instead .. )

2224GreekBug ReportVery LowSemicolon is a bad separatorUnconfirmed
0%
1124.10.201625.10.2016 Task Description

The symbol “;” in Greek is the question mark. So a list of semicolon-separated values looks like a series of questions in Greek. (looks like this: “cat? dog? rabbit?” ;-))

I suggest replacing semicolons with commas as list separators.

In email lists space is good choice too.

it could be fine that we could restricted some projects to some users; for example, user #1 could access (and see) project#1, project#3; user#2 could access project#1, project#2, project#4 …

2000User InterfaceFeature RequestLowResponsible persons column viewNew
30%
1.1 devel122.06.201509.09.2015 Task Description

In the task list the responsible persons are shown as "first person name, +n" where n are the count of further responsible persons.

I think this can be done a bit better.

Ideas:

  • show as it is now, but on css :hover show all persons
  • use initials like "CR FS JM" for Cristian R., Florian S., Jordan M. and on css :hover show a list with the full names, this can make the column width a bit smaller.
  • use tiny avatar icons in a row like you can see here https://github.com/Flyspray/flyspray/blob/master/header.php for example, and showing the names on css :hover.
2032User InterfaceFeature RequestLowreplace hardcoded ... 'ellipsis'New

Thomasz wrote:
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:
