1673Backend/CoreBug ReportHighOnly white screen after upgrade to 1.0 - reasonsConfirmed
10%
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.

1.1 devel4112.04.201309.07.2018 Task Description

When some url to a bug is redirected to the login page, because the user does not have the right to see the bug without login, the user should be redirected after the login to the url he wanted to see.

Maybe redirect to /login/?next=/task/X and put the next-url in a hidden field in the login-form, so flyspray can redirect to the correct page after login.
Even preserving anchor-urls (#comment-YYYY) would be cool, but i guess this needs Javascript to work.

1955Backend/CoreTODOLowCodestyleConfirmed

1.1 devel307.03.201509.03.2015 Task Description

So, the new website is now online, the codestyle part is empty and I think we need to speak about them...

I can happily reformat the whole project once we have decided the whole thing. Don't forget, too strict code style leads to code style not being respected, so crap like max line length should be avoided. I personnaly don't know anybody coding from their mobile phones. I sometimes do check some code on it, but long lines never disturbed me as long as the line is not 5k chars long.

I think we should go for a standard one.

Things like:

- Do use brackets even if single lined condition
- Variable names have spaces replaced by the next words first letter in capital, start with a lower case
- Same goes for functions
- Etc etc. Pretty much of PSR-1 maybe 2

What I don't understand is the use of spaces, and I'd be for tabs instead of 4 spaces (some files use 2 spaces, some 3...). Most of the dev tools are by default set to use tabs and not spaces. And be seeing the code now we see that it clearly. So i'd be for reformatting into tabs, the whole, and same time fixing the broken identation in every files.

I could write it down for the website

1.1 devel307.03.201509.03.2015 Task Description

Upon my implementation for an easier date selector, I think we should rework it as follow:

  • Drop extended date concept
  • Add a Time format
  • Extended dates field become a concatenation of date format and time format.
    • The above make it easier to select your preferences
  • Rename GMT to UTC
  • Add automatic daylight saving configs

2081User InterfaceBug ReportLowUI for adding comment while editing task doesn't use HT...Confirmed
0%
429.10.201506.11.2015 Task Description

While editing an existing task, there’s a “+” button you can click to add a comment as part of the edit. Unfortunately this is just a plaintext box instead of the HTML editor used everywhere else, so it’s impossible to get proper line/paragraph breaks if a comment is entered with this UI.

This problem makes it necessary to edit a task and add a comment as two separate steps, whereas in 0.9.9.6 it was possible to do them together in one step.

Note that this is the case with syntax_plugin=”none”. I don’t know if it’s also a problem when using other values for that setting.

2098User InterfaceBug ReportMediumAttached image cannot be downloadedConfirmed
50%
1.1 devel530.01.201610.01.2017 Task Description

Steps:

- Attach an image to a task.
- It shows as a link in your task (cf. screenshot “Screenshot from 2016-01-29 18-34-31.png”).
- Click on the link.

Result: it opens a “popup” with the image displayed in it. If the image is big, the popup is just so huge the image is not visible without boring horizontal and vertical scrolling (see “Screenshot from 2016-01-30 15-07-26.png” which shows what I see when I click the image link on my task).
I can’t even right click to download from the menu since I see no “Save Image As” item. (see Screenshot-no-save-image-in-menu.png).

My workaround was that if I drag and drop the attachment link in the address bar, I finally get the expected image, which I can finally save as! This workaround was hard to find, and I expect most people will just get frustrated of being able to view an image attachment, yet not save it locally.

I proposes the following:
- a small “download” icon next to the image link in the task for direct download (without preview).
- a “download” link/icon on the top-left of the image display popup (to download while previewing).

And as a side feature (maybe I should make a separate report?), I suggest that by default the image display popup constrains the image to the screen size, with a “see real size” link, so that you don’t get the popup with huge scrolling when opening a big image on a smaller screen.

Note: of course this issue does not appear with non displayable attachment. If I have a zip or a document, it proposes me to download it directly.

1.0319.04.201603.02.2018 Task Description

Problem: https://github.com/Flyspray/flyspray/pull/552

The button ‘My assigned tasks’ should search only by userid, not in username or realname with the LIKE ‘%...%’ operator.

Currently the button is using the same as doing an advanced search filling the ‘Assigned To’ input field. (currently ‘dev’ param) But that search param searches in userid, username and realname.

Edit: Implemented simpler solution: if param is digitsonly, then search by userid, otherwise by username and realname if that param exists.

2128Text RenderingBug ReportLowGeshi (part of dokuwiki plugin for code blocks) uses de...Confirmed
20%
2120.05.201616.06.2016 Task Description

The dokuwiki plugin uses a very old version of geshi for syntax highlighting which uses the deprecated /e modifier in preg_replace in two places rather than preg_replace_callback.

This can trigger warnings such as the following when initially parsing content which uses dokuwiki syntax and includes code:

PHP message: PHP Deprecated: preg_replace(): The /e modifier is deprecated, use preg_replace_callback instead in /home/phpapps/flyspray/plugins/dokuwiki/inc/geshi.php on line 2058

PHP message: PHP Deprecated: preg_replace(): The /e modifier is deprecated, use preg_replace_callback instead in /home/phpapps/flyspray/plugins/dokuwiki/inc/geshi.php on line 2067

This affects bugs.flyspray.org as well. Several hits came up on google when I search for the following due to the warnings having been displayed ahead of the page content (seen screenshot): flyspray preg_replace_callback

Because flyspray caches the results of processing dokuwiki content then the warnings don’t get emitted if the content has already been cached (so you may find that when you access the url in the screenshot that it doesn’t show the warnings unless you clear the cache entry for that task). Previews can get the warnings spat out as well if there are tagged code sections in the content.

I had a look at a more recent version of geshi (1.0.8.11 from sourceforge) and they had fixed that issue in it (presumably along with a lot of other stuff) so I tried replacing plugins/dokuwiki/inc/geshi.php and plugins/dokuwiki/inc/geshi/* with the 1.0.8.11 versions and that stopped the warnings. I haven’t extensively tested it, but it was processing stuff in code blocks correctly still on the couple of samples I tried.

I guess it’s a separate issue but the new flyspray theme doesn’t have any css styles to apply to the syntax highlighting (if you look at  FS#1107  you can see that, and in fact you can see it with the css bit below - if you inspect them with a browser dom inspector you can see that the genshi plugin has parsed and tagged the bits, but no styles are applied so its all just in the default colour). I can raise that as a separate task if worth doing? The following section in bluey stylesheet covered it I think:

.code .br0 {color:#6c6;}
.code .es0 {color:#009;font-weight:700;}
.code .kw1 {color:#b1b100;}
.code .kw2 {color:#000;font-weight:700;}

2225GreekBug ReportVery LowGreek uses slash for datesConfirmed
20%
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.

1.0201.09.201810.09.2018 Task Description

I’ve set up an account with a username longer than 20 characters, but can’t reset the password because the
flyspray/index.php?do=lostpw
page username field has maxlength=”20” The maxlength for a new user registration seems to be 32 characters.

A related concern is that when setting up the default/admin user on first load of the system, I can use an email address as username (always my preference), but it’s actually not a valid username to create for others thereafter. Consider allowing ‘@’ character in usernames.

2.0102.04.201315.09.2017 Task Description

My workplace is piloting Flyspray for an internal project and one feature that my boss was asking about was the ability to clone tasks and projects.

We have reoccurring simultaneous projects that contain a large number of testing tasks, and tasks dependent on other tasks, which makes starting up a new project very tedious. If it was possible to clone the contents of a task, or an entire project, we could create template tasks/projects that would really speed up the workflow.

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

1237Backend/CoreFeature RequestMediumAllow Multiple Owners Per CategoryPlanned
0%
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.

We need to have a better way to do user rights, group rights and manage users.

Here is what I am thinking, global administration can go to a ACL tab. Click on it and you have a simple way to add a new user / group. Two tabs on top are User Rights and Group Rights. These are global so each project will inherit the global setting for user / group.

Clicking on User Rights tab will lists users with a table to grant user rights. Specific to that user, it would be the same for group rights tab.
