1875Backend/CoreFeature RequestMediumAbility to mark project as completedMaybe
1.1 devel6126.09.201312.10.2015 Task Description

Currently projects in Flyspray are active or set inactive.

It will be great to archive project if finished or abandoned. In this case it will not be shown in project overview page and project navigation combo.

1967User InterfaceBug ReportLowKeep browser scroll position when sorting task listNew
1.1 devel412.03.201519.09.2015 Task Description

When I scroll down the page to see more of the task list and then click on one of the column headings to sot by this heading, the answer page doesn't scroll down to the table.

I think there are 2 technical solutions for that:

1. set an name/id a-anchor on top of the table and on each column heading link add for example '#tasklist'.

2. add a js-sorter with complete extra search and sort ajax-backend with e.g. libs from This requires aleso writing a server side handler for taking the ajax requests (respecting user permissions!) and is only usable if js in enabled in browser. So this second solution can only be a luxury comfort function.

1970User InterfaceFeature RequestLowIcons for predefined task typesNew
1.1 devel112.03.201530.10.2015 Task Description

for toplevel, roadmap and task list view.

For roadmap: replace the current ‘-’ between the task id and task summary with icons.

For toplevel: most wanted tasks and assigned to myself

ul.tasks li {clear:left;}
content: "\code";
font-family: FontAwesome;

On task list the column text can be replaced by icons, moving the text to title attribute.

Maybe use css :content-before or :content-after for that.

I suggest following font-icons from fontawesome are the easiest way to implement:

  • Bug Report use fa-bug , red color
  • Feature Request use fa-star , yellow
  • TODO a bold T, blue ( or blue fa-check?, but check mark maybe too ambiguous)

Gain: you faster see what types of task are on roadmap milestones and task list exists.

2040Installer and UpgraderInformationMediumFS1.0 Release buildsConfirmed
1.0523.08.201517.04.2019 Task Description
  • Use github releases for the release? peterdd: Yes, currently only source releases without 3rd party vendors.

The Flyspray 1.0alpha1 .zip file release unzips directly to the current directory.

.zip files from github unzip to it’s own directory ( unzips to flyspray-master/ ). This is a bit safer, because you cannot accidently mess your directory structure with it.

  • The release should contain the binary fontawesome files instead of linking to the external CDN. Removes one dependency/singlepointoffailure. How this can be configured for automation? included in Flyspray source now. :-)
  • document how a release is exactly created. (consistency, reliability, automation, knowledge sharing for maintainers see below :-) )
  • Get in contact with os distributions, that could add Flyspray releases to their repositories (*BSD, Linux distributions, ..) This repositories could add the dependencies like ADODB within the packages (.rpm, .deb,..)
  • Get in contact with web hosting providers who provide integreated 1-click installs of software for their web hossting customers.
  • Get in contact with container builders (docker, ..)

Steps how to do a Flyspray release (since Flyspray 1.0 RC)

  1. Edit includes/class.flyspray.php on and set the correct version for the release there (remove the ' dev’ from the version string), commit as new branch e.g. 1.0-rc1
  2. Prepare a new release on , write a summary of changes since last release, choose the branch you created in the previous step, save as “draft”.
  3. “Release” the Flyspray source on github when satisfied with layout
  4. Run buildscripts for different php versions (see comments at FS#2040)
  5. Upload the created .zip and .tgz files to
  6. Upload the created .zip and .tgz files to stored since 1.0-rc2 only on to avoid redundancy
  7. Test the created blobs on different servers too.
  8. Edit the and link the source and packaged .zip and .tgz files
  9. Write a new article with a summary of highlights of changes since last release for the frontpage on
  10. Send an email to the Flyspray mailing list
  11. Important: If all is nice and shiny: Update the version string on so admins of flyspray get informed a new Flyspray release is available now. For instance change from 1.0-rc to 1.0-rc1 if you are releasing Flyspray 1.0 RC1. Must be the exact version you set in includes/class.flyspray.php .

Maybe we can use this sequence as template on for releases? :-)

2101Backend/CoreBug ReportLowMobile view GUI bugConfirmed
418.02.201624.02.2016 Task Description

As you can see on screenshot attachment the GUI on mobile view is not OK.

I marked with red field what need to be fixed.

Phone used: Samsung Note 4.

2225GreekBug ReportVery LowGreek uses slash for datesConfirmed
324.10.201622.11.2016 Task Description

Short dates in Greek are represented in the majority of cases with slashes (24/10/2016). Very seldom some people may use the dash form (24-10-2016) and hardly ever the dot form (24.10.2016).

So it would be much appreciated if the slash form were a (working) option because as it is dates are a bit confusing to us, especially in a date-time combination (too many numbers in a not-so-obvious format - brain needs extra time to decode it).

2317User InterfaceBug ReportMediumDate format wrongConfirmed
1.1 devel122.11.201622.11.2016 Task Description

In some parts of the world (primarily the US), the date is viewed as Month/Day/Year. However, all options in the current rc4 build are listed as Day/Month/Year aside from one, which goes ShortWrittenMonth/Day#/Year#.

This is poor from a customer perspective, and can be highly confusing. I can change the date globally to a correct format in the database, but this doesn’t help much as every user can select their own date which has all incorrect formats.

2581User InterfaceFeature RequestLowreplace bitmap icons of default themeNew
31.10.201905.04.2021 Task Description

I played with adding a dark mode color theme to the default CleanFS theme.

To make the dark theme just simple exchange some colors, the bitmap icons should be replaced with alternatives.

Easiest would be using the fontawesome font icons as Flyspray still uses them and they can simply get a css color assigned.


  • caret of tasklist
  • the ‘select all’ icon of tasklist, but also used at some more locations.
  • some icons in the Flyspray main toolbar (Overview, Tasklist, Event log, ..)
  • the black calendar icons for date selects
  • maybe the file type icons for attachments


  • Dokuwiki toolbar fixed in devel for Flyspray 1.0-rc10
  • CKEditor: some modern CKEditor themes support color/dark mode, I will probably choose the moona-lisa theme as default.
2609User InterfaceFeature RequestLowAdd an Effort Description fieldMaybe
407.05.202003.04.2021 Task Description

It would be nice to have a description field to put a brief note about the work done for a given effort item. This would help when using effort tracking for the purpose of making invoices to a client.

2610User InterfaceFeature RequestLowEffort pop-up timerNew
207.05.202024.08.2020 Task Description

It would be terrific to have a small pop-up window that appears when you click to start tracking of an item. In the window could be:

  • the task name
  • a timer
  • a button to close the timer pop-up and jump to the effort tracking screen, or even to stop the effort timer in FlySpray if possible.

This would help tremendously to remind a developer that he has one or more timers going in FlySpray.

If multiple timers are started, there could be multiple timer windows, each identified by the task name showing as part of the window (title bar or some text near the timer).

1673Backend/CoreBug ReportHighOnly white screen after upgrade to 1.0 - reasonsConfirmed
1.1 devel31412.01.201117.08.2016 Task Description

After I upgraded to version 1.0 (the upgrade was successful), flyspray only shows a white page (and the source in firefox shows, that the page is completely white).

Please help us finding the roots of these bugs!

Please report what you were exactly doing before this happend, report us your steps made, the used php version, used OS version, and such information.

We think most cases of that “white screen” are relying on the third party vendor libraries behavior we use.
When a library detects an error, sometimes they just call die() or exit; of php, but suppress error messages. So the script just stopped not giving any output to browser.

The dev versions from github use composer for installing the required libraries. We will package them on the final release together and make sure most cases of “white screen” are fixed.

Convert all the JS to using one library. Seems there is scattered JS scripts all over and we need to pick one solution that could be long term and has plenty of features for improving FS.

I vote for JQuery w/ Bootstrap which has some nice JS effects using JQuery.

@peterdd wrote on 2021-04-02:

Yes, move inline javascript out of templates, but no need for single wholeinone js file, it’s ok to load only the js files required for current page. Probably in 2021 there is no need for js framework anymore and standard javascript is just fine for the functionality Flyspray requires.

2009User InterfaceFeature RequestLowEdit task flowNew
2.0118.07.201507.08.2016 Task Description

Currently only a small portion of adjustements on a task is available in the “edit task” view.

To add or modify stuff in the current tab sections (comments, related tasks, notifications, effort tracking,..)
a user must go from edit task to view task page.

This not optimal for work flow.

To solve this quite much changes are needed. Because currently they are different http requests each with its own checks and request anwsers.

224.03.201605.06.2016 Task Description

When I tried to install a instance of flyspray that is a release, I am greeted with a screen that says that I am trying to install a development version of flyspray. Due to me using shared hosting, I am unable to run any composer commands.

My version of flyspray was downloaded from, so why would this be happening? Thanks

2143TranslationsTODOVery Lowjscalendar: week start should be monday, ISO 8601Confirmed
201.07.201603.03.2019 Task Description

The current jscalendar shows sunday as the first day of the week by default.

Could be modified for a language by adding

// First day of the week. 0 means Sunday, 1 means Monday
Calendar._FD = 1;

It should default to Monday as defined by ISO 8601.

2322User InterfaceFeature RequestMediumMention SystemNew
7107.12.201619.10.2019 Task Description

Hello together,

it would be nice, if you could mention user in your ticket or comment which are not following the task.
for example when i will type @nickname, the user “nickname” should be get a e-mail that he is mentioned in the ticket.

(if we are “fancy” then we can print a automcomplete after the @-sign ist typed)

I hoped that in rc6 this will be solved but not. This error was the same on rc4.

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.

1134User InterfaceFeature RequestLowadd icon/image for each projectPlanned
1.1 devel7329.11.200609.03.2015 Task Description

When we have several projects into flyspray, it's hard to see the project where I am when I add several tasks.
It's necessary to read the text.

To improve this, I think that it's a good idea if it's possible to add a color or an image with the logo project next to project title into web page. It will more simple to know where we are when we use flyspray.

1222Backend/CoreFeature RequestMediumWorkflow engine / Role-based State Transition Rules Eng...Unconfirmed
11625.03.200705.05.2019 Task Description

I have been working with Eventum ( for quite sometime now and in contrast, I like Flyspray for its simplicity and practicality. But one thing I badly miss (and something that Eventum scores high) is a Workflow Engine. If not a sophisticated W.E., I (as an Admin / Manager) should be able define role-based state transition rules of the tasks reported in a particular project. For example, I should be able to implement the following scenario:

  1. For a “Developer”, the subsequent tasks from various states. Likewise for other roles
  2. “Developer” should not be able close out the bug reports. He/she can only flag them as implemented. The “Reporter” of the bugs or the “Manager” alone should be able to close out issues
  3. ..
  4. .. it will go on like that ;-)

This feature, in my opinion, is very crucial for corporate organizations to give a serious consideration to Flyspray.

1236User InterfaceFeature RequestLowMark Issue As Verified or UnverifiableUnconfirmed
3409.04.200718.07.2016 Task Description

Currently, the Vote functionality provides users a way to say "this issue is important to me". In addition to that functionality, it would be great for users to have a "Verify" ability on open issues; it would provide users a way to say "yes, this happens to me as well".

A "Verified" label would fit nicely right under "Votes", to the right of the label would be "Yes | No", each option being a link. After clicking Yes or No, or if unable to specify (lack of permissions), the text would display "Yes - # | No - # (% verification)" where '%' is the result of ((Yes/(Yes+No))*100).

This feature should not show up on all issues, though. It does not make sense to "verify" a feature request or todo item, for example. When defining task types, the administrator would specify if a type was "Verifiable" by checking a box in a column next to "Show".

If implemented, two great, mini extra features would be:

  1. The ability for the administrator to set the number of "Yes" verifications an issue would need before it was elevated to the next priority, severity, or both (specified by the administrator).
  2. The ability for the administrator to set the number of "No" verifications an issue would need before it was lowered to the previous priority, severity, or both (specified by the administrator).

Both settings should have an option to be incremental (priority / status increased every x verifications) or not (increases once, no matter how many verifications are received); an "Incremental" checkbox would do nicely. Also, a little "Enabled" checkbox next to both settings would be clearer than having zero act as the disable mechanism.

As with voting, a permission should exist to enable or disable this option for a user group. For larger projects, moderators tasked with verifying bugs could be given the permission whereas smaller projects may leave verifications up to the community.

Lastly, a way to send a notification once the number of "Yes" verifications reached a certain value would also be a great addition.

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.
