304.11.201905.11.2019 Task Description

I have installed flyspray on an internal server and have problems with the renaming of internal links.

For example:
I want to put this link in the comment section.
\\192.168.200.5\Folder\example.docx

it shows the link correct,
but when you hover over the link it shows:
file://192.168.200.5/Folder/example.docx

And on clicking on it, of course I can´t access the file, because it´s trying to open an external link.
I dont want it to be renamed from ‘\’ to ‘/’.

Can somebody help me please.

I tryed to find it in the sourcecodes, but I have almost no experience in PHP.

Thank you!

PHP 7.4 is out now and a few things should be done to make Flyspray work well with it.
Nothing really breaks, but a view deprecation warnings should be fixed.

Flyspray source itself: Just a few new notices, most are yet fixed in the master branch.

Watching the PHP7.4 compatibility of dependencies defined by composer.json:

  • ADOdb/ADODb: 5.20.15 should be OK for Flyspray
  • swiftmailer/swiftmailer: We still use 5.* branch, so either do quickfix for a notice in a fork or upgrade/rewrite our integration to the 6.* branch.
  • ezyang/htmlpurifier: 4.12 OK
  • thephpleague/oauth2-client: unknown, we still use 0.13, last real source change was Nov 2018, to upgrade requires rewrite of integration into Flyspray and there is low demand for OAuth2.
  • dapphp/securimage: seems to be OK
  • jamiebicknell/sparkline: OK, but probably obsolete for us in future due
    • still annoying problems with our github/travis tests (problem of travis, not sparkline itself)
    • better solution (interactive hover infos, scales, screen size adaptive) by Flyspray source planned

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 http://datatables.net/ 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.

1.1 devel412.03.201518.03.2019 Task Description

This task can maybe splitted into separate sub tasks.

Task properties

Current situation

  • Currently 8 multi select fields with height of 5.5 visible options.
  • For most of the selects you must scroll to make the right selections.
  • floating

Ideas

Multi select option styling

Some (not all, intentional!) browsers support CSS styling of option tags. For these who support it I think option styling is a good usability enhancement:

  • severity: We use background colors for styling in task list, so we should use the same colors for the select.
  • priority: maybe, but must be good distinguishable from severity styling. maybe not background, but maybe icons,borders,lines?
  • task type: This styling would be related to an other task, where I suggest icons/font icons for bugs, feature requests and TODO (see also themes/CleanFS/custom_example.css)
  • progress: maybe use the green %-bars as background styling
  • status: If for some status types very intuitive icons exists, they could be used for the options too.
  • due version: no idea yet, no option styling
  • reported version: no idea yet, no option styling

Update: CSS of option tags working in multi selects:

  • Firefox 64: yes
  • Safari 12: no
  • Google Chrome 71: no

So only Firefox. The intended styling could be also achieved by Javascript that renders alternative select boxes based on reading the original select boxes and their option attributes and show the user CSS styled div-tag or li-tag based constructs which do not have such restrictions.

Custom fields

  • challenge/doom level - doom faces: from easy/normal to bloody/angry face
  • os: logos like tux for linux, devil for bsd, window for ms, apple icon, osX icon, android, apple, iphone/smartphone icon, ipad/tablet icon, ..

But Consider: Different project may need different custom fields. Your gardening project may need no OS version selector.

  1. Make some intelligent positioning and sizing dependent on the count of options of the selects.

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.

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.

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.

431.10.201802.11.2018 Task Description

So, I’ve been away from Flyspray for more than a few years. When I tried to login to the Flyspray here, I was unable to login, because I don’t remember my username, and I was unable to retrieve my username, because there’s no function for that. I was *also* unable to re-register the same email address. SO, having an account system that requires both unique usernames and unique email addresses, but has no way of retrieving one from the other, doesn’t work out so well.

Suggestion: either use email as username, or add a function to retrieve username (perhaps along with password retrieval . . password retrieval would then have to take username -or- email, probably)

We don't close the tasks until the release is "made", that is we let them under "Requires Testing" with 100% complete. When the release/testing cycle is finished, somebody has to go task by task, and start closing them... it's a PITA ;)
It would be nice to have to option to select all the tasks you want to close, and that the "popup" when you enter the reason/etc, applied to all the tasks I selected...

I recall reading something about this in the past, but haven't found it; and if this is implemented, I haven't seen a way to do it in 099beta1

1.0516.03.201512.10.2015 Task Description

Due to the needed implementation of an anti csrf system into Flyspray 1.0,
this are a side effect issues we need to address:

Due the required replacement of action links to form buttons:

  • The user cannot just see anymore the target url of the action by hovering over the link. We can compensate that in the simpliest case by using the title-tag as additional info to the user. Trust not full reestabilished that way, but better than nothing and user has fear to click a form button.

Javascriptless CSS3-toggles:

  • Some clickable labels don’t show pointer icon when :hover. CSS issue, easy fix.
2018User InterfaceBug ReportLowreview keyboard navigationResearching

1.1 devel526.07.201529.07.2019 Task Description

Keyboard navigation is not documented

At least there is no hint in the interface which keyboard shortcuts are available for fast navigation between task list and task details view.

Due to the dropping of the cookie storage for remembering last search or last selected task in favor of not interfering when multiple flyspray browser tabs are open (with e.g. different projects) ,
the caret list browsing with ‘j’,’k’,’o’ and details view isn’t useful at moment.

  1. keyboard based navigation must be documented somewhere, e.g. by providing hints (clickable icon for info or :hover ) at appropriate positions.
  2. navigation flow and technical realisation reviewed for keyboard power users

Edit: Currently handled by js event handler:

  • j move cursor down in task list
  • k move cursor up in task list
  • o open current selected task in task list
  • n next task on task details page
  • p previous task on task details page
grep -r 'accesskey' *

Current accesskeys (browserspecific + key):

  • a double usage for new task and newmultitask. Must hit [Enter] to open one of them; on newmultitask page it adds a new row.
  • e edit task on task details page
  • f copy firstline to the other rows on new multitask page
  • l show loginbox or logs you off
  • m toggle mysearchesbox
  • r reset? when dokuwiki plugin is used
  • s submit when dokuwiki plugin is used
  • w watch/unwatch task on task details page
  • n next task
  • p previous task
  • y close task

531.10.201803.11.2018 Task Description

I use a personal email server with a self-signed certificate (i’m not sure if it’s possible to use my https certificate for that? i don’t even kind of understand what all I did to get this email server setup, and I don’t really want to mess with it... especially since my https certificate comes from Let’s Encrypt... so i might have to muck with the email server every 60 days ... not sure?) ..

anyway, when I try to connect to it with Flyspray, I get above the Test Email button, “Completely unexpected exception: Unable to connect with TLS encryption
This should never happend, please inform Flyspray Developers”

Most systems have a way to override and accept an invalid cert, but I’m not seeing anything obvious about doing that with Flyspray. Does a function for this already exist, or do we need a way to do that? (alternatively, I would accept help in properly configuring my email lol)

Steps done to create the problem:
Visit https://bugs.flyspray.org/index.php?do=register in a private browser window (so you are logged out)

Put in an already taken username (e.g. Stefan or Stefan2)

Expected behavior:
Username gets red and a note appears that username already is taken

Experienced behavior:
Username gets green and registration of a new user proceeds with sending a notification mail with confirmation code.
After putting in the confirmation code in provided page, user gets presented a “username is already taken, choose another” (where?) message, and has to re-start registration process from beginning and hopefully this time choose a not taken name.
