2085Text RenderingInformationMediumEnabling Color Coding options in CKEDITORUnconfirmed
0%
130.10.201530.10.2015 Task Description

Hi

So I figured out that there are no color coding options (to set text color and background color) for text in the CKEDITOR. I did some changes to CKEDITOR to add those, however, once I submit the text, it does not retain the changes.

Is there a particular reason why these are not enabled in the first place?

I am thinking it would be good add these, so that we can make the important text pop-out to the users.

710.10.201508.12.2015 Task Description

My version of PHP still shows deprecation warnings with flyspray.

Deprecated: mysql_connect(): The mysql extension is deprecated and will be removed in the future: use mysqli or PDO instead in /var/www/flyspray.itiab.co.nz/htdocs/adodb/drivers/adodb-mysql.inc.php on line 353

Have all mysql.connect instances been removed? The connect will be removed from PHP soon and will cause problems.

612.10.201618.10.2016 Task Description

Hello,

I was wondering if there is a way to make the task more visible if it wasn’t completed due to the date that was selected by a user - let’s say a yellowish background in tasklist, just like the ones from custom css based on severity, but that will take color if the task has the due date passed.

2214Backend/CoreInformationLowChanging status of task automaticallyUnconfirmed

417.10.201606.11.2016 Task Description

Hello again,

I was wondering (again :-) ) if the following scenario is possible for this bug tracking solution:

Our company uses this bug tracker mainly for helpdesk issues. However, our main users (except IT department) don’t seem to easily understand how to change the status of a ticket, they aren’t interested in doing that also.

So I would like to know if there is a way that we can develop some automatisation in changing the status automatically after customer replies to a message.

Let’s see the following scenario:

  1. user A posts a new task
  2. user B assigns himself (or other) to that specific task - the status automatically is changed to Assigned
  3. user B replies to task by adding a comment - as a result of adding the new comment the task status should change automatically to Waiting for customer - without the need that user B to change the status
  4. user A checks the comment from user B and decides to comment back to him. After pressing the Add comment button, the status should change automatically to Waiting for assignee

If the task is needed to have another status, the users can change them manually, but the automated part should be the waiting for customer and assignee.

On a basic algorithm it shouldn’t be hard (if user is logged in and is task owner, then after comment, task detail - status changing to id 4-5 from task-statuses table on mysql; if user is logged in and assigned to task, after adding comment change status 4-5 from task-statuses table).

I saw this thing on an otrs platform and it is quite ok for a simple user like ours.

Is there any way that we can personalise the flyspray in this way?

If yes, please give us an elaborate answer with what I should do for this to work.

Thanks in advance.

Since we have a lot of tasks pending, our team leader wants a specific status (let’s say: Waiting for dispatch) to be marked with a green background in tasklist.
Can you please help me to make this mod?

Thanks in advance.

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
      ?do=admin&area=prefs#lookandfeel

      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 https://www.flyspray.org in the documentation area.

109.03.201720.03.2017 Task Description

Hey peterdd,

I was wondering: is there a standard URL for “My tasks”? I have an internal website and I would like to create a menu with a few submenus (Add task and My tasks) that link to FlySpray. However if I place the URL for My Tasks (being logged in with my user account), and copy this link to the menu, all others that click the submenu My Tasks, are seeing the tasks that where opened by me or where I am assigned, not that user that is connected on Flyspray with his account on his PC.

So that’s why I am asking for a generic URL of My Tasks, so I can place it on this middle-site?

Thanks

Quick anwser: enable swap partition on your server.

Tried upgrading a rc4-dev to rc5-dev/rc6/flyspray-master on a virtual server with 500MB RAM and php5.6.30 on the commandline (debian)

After file upgrade, I wanted also update the vendor stuff according to composer.json changes.

But surprisingly this failed:

php composer.phar update

and also after

php composer.phar selfupdate


to version Composer version 1.5.2 2017-09-11 the memory limit bug exists:

The following exception is caused by a lack of memory or swap, or not having swap configured
Check https://getcomposer.org/doc/articles/troubleshooting.md#proc-open-fork-failed-errors for details

PHP Warning:  proc_open(): fork failed - Cannot allocate memory in phar:///var/www/***/composer.phar/vendor/symfony/console/Application.php on line 979

Warning: proc_open(): fork failed - Cannot allocate memory in phar:///var/www/***/composer.phar/vendor/symfony/console/Application.php on line 979

  [ErrorException]
  proc_open(): fork failed - Cannot allocate memory

Also doing a more fresh vendor install like

rm composer.lock
rm vendor/*
(keeps the .htaccess there)
php composer.phar install

300 MB not enough for a handful of php package installations? wtf, but didn’t dig deeper..

I temporarly solved the problem by making a swap partition on this vServer like suggested at
https://getcomposer.org/doc/articles/troubleshooting.md#proc-open-fork-failed-errors

/bin/dd if=/dev/zero of=/var/swap.1 bs=1M count=1024
/sbin/mkswap /var/swap.1
chmod 600 /var/swap.1
/sbin/swapon /var/swap.1

This is just documentation and is for the people who prefer a Flyspray development version from github.com

Full Flyspray release download files do not needs to fiddle with composer.

Maybe an entry for the FAQ

2466Backend/CoreInformationLowHow to run under httpsUnconfirmed

1303.06.201802.12.2018 Task Description

I have changed the htaccess.dist into .htaccess and modified to force https.
However, despite having https activated on my site I cannot get Flyspray running, it’s waiting forever.When I abort I get a page without makeup. I have all other applications like cms and wiki running under https, so it is something I have not done in the flyspray configs obviously (as this site is running https too). But could you give me a hint?

I installed flyspray in a subdirectory, if that is something to know about...

the old php mysql extension is long ago reached its demise, why bother supporting it?

I also see in the database connector that your supporting MySQL/PDO - why not settle on that? If the queries aren’t MySQL specific, it becomes easier to support other DB’s, etc.

Save public files inside public or public_html directories, and non-public files outside of those directories;

config file

vendor directory

setup logic

etc

This goes onto another question/point - why are you deleting files from the vendor directory? It happens during composer install, and again after installation? Those files will just get put back if the user ever runs composer install again...

That way you can just protect the setup routes after installation, etc.

And have a much less cumbersome .htaccess file.

And take sensitive files outside of the server path and not risk letting them get out in the public
