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.

4106.01.201613.01.2016 Task Description

I upgraded from 0.9.9 to 1.0-beta2 a few hours ago. I received an error about oauth during the upgrade (didn’t think to take a screenshot). In any case, the upgrade otherwise seemed to go smoothly. When I subsequently closed a few tasks people who weren’t assigned to receive notifications for those tasks, even old consultants whose account I had disabled years ago, received the email notification. I also received lots of bounced emails from accounts whose email addresses were no longer existant.

Has anyone else experienced this? I’ve gone into the database and null’d out the email addresses of old accounts to prevent further spam. Not only did it notify everyone who had an account (active or disabled) but it put their email address in the To: field for all to see.

2499User InterfaceBug ReportHighChange recaptcha from using file_get_contents to CurlUnconfirmed
0%
118.09.201802.11.2018 Task Description

The issue with many servers now and the reason that recaptcha does not work is because it requires servers to enable allow_url_fopen which is a huge security risk. That is why you get the warning message when you try to run recaptcha that file_get_contents failed to connect.

So the solution is to use Curl to do that job.

Here is the fixed file, excuse my mess i had not cleaned up my code yet... but recaptcha now works.

this file goes in the includes dir... you can clean up the file if you like again sorry about that.

1950User InterfaceTODOMediumSolve confusing Flyspray group settings vs Project grou...Confirmed
50%
1.0907.03.201511.11.2015 Task Description

This is taken from FS#1753:

The second reason being there is no way that I know of to automatically set a project usergroup to new members. I only have 1 project, but it seems the Global groups aren’t working (can still see tasks if “View Tasks” is unchecked) and I don’t know how to fix that.

And what I have to say - it is hard to tell if you are on the Flyspray admin settings area or on the admin settings of a project.

Cheapest way is adding some CSS to distinguish this for the user.

But there is in fact more to do to make it user friendly.

  • TODO: list configurations for project(task types, categories, ..) in Manage Project should also show the system wide list values as hint to avoid duplication.
  • TODO: project user groups overview should show system wide user group infos as info for project managers to avoid unnecessary complicated configuration settings.
  • TODO: visualize related permissions that can overrule eachother like ‘view_task’ overrules ‘view_own_tasks’ to avoid misconfigurations
2016User InterfaceTODOMediumheading and h1, h2, h3New
0%
1.1 devel23.07.201523.07.2015 Task Description

We should change the document logic a bit here. For public projects search engines like well structured pages more then others. And we get a consistent structure too in future for Flyspray.

This I have in mind

Project area name ("All Projects" or "Project name")

  • Currently: h1-tag
  • My wish: not a h1-tag anymore here

Admin setting / Project setting pages, title of the sub pages

  • Currently: h3-tag!
  • My wish: h1 tag

Section names in these pages

  • Currently: h4-tags
  • My wish: h2 tags, subsubs then h3,...

Task view page

Task name=summary

  • Currently: h2 tag
  • My wish: h1 tag

Task descriptions then can use structuring their task description starting as h2,h3,h4 (done by dokuwiki renderer for example)

Toplevel project overview /dashboard

  • Currently: h2 for each project name
  • My wish:
  • * keep h2 for each project name
  • * h1 for the page heading (maybe hidden by css)

New Task page

  • Currently: h2 for summary and tags. Wrong logical nesting!
  • My wish: drop the h2 for form field labels

Reports page

  • Currently: h3 tag
  • My wish: h1 tag

Roadmap page

  • Currently: h3 tag for each milestone
  • My wish:
  • * h2 tag for each milestone,
  • * h1 tag for heading (maybe hidden by css)

MyProfile page

  • Currently: h3 tag for each section
  • My wish:
  • * h2 tag for each section
  • *h1 tag for heading (maybe hidden by css)

(Sure the theme.css must be adapted to this change.)

2114TranslationsTODOMediumStandardize the priority meaning across flyspray transl...New
0%
207.04.201626.03.2018 Task Description

Standardize the priority meaning across flyspray translations.

Idea:

0 - priority unset (database field default value)

1 - defer (or very low priority, often results the task is defered, see “Eisenhower principle”)
2 - low
3 - normal
4 - high
5 - very high

6 - flash (house burns, catastrophic event, website down, “boss” decision)

Some other software (other task planers/ email programs) use a 1-5 step priority. So an export feature to other software may merge priority 6 to priority 5 for such software.

In 2012 meaning was changed only in english translation.

Before normal was priority 2 in a 1-6 range, after it is priority 4 in a 1-6 range.
It should be IMHO 3 in that 1-6 range.

2585User InterfaceTODOMediumUpgrade CKEditor to 4.13New
0%
peterdd02.12.201917.02.2020 Task Description

To fix some other open tasks, an update of the CKEditor4 files is probably the best way.

Starting with CKEditor4 ‘Basic’ preset, evaluate every additional Plugin before adding them to the config.

Because the selection of plugins starts with the ‘Basic’ preset, some configs are disabled in the resulting config.sys like the ‘Strike’ button or the Copy/Paste functionality.

I am also evaluating the possibilities to make some of the options configurable within the Flyspray configuration. It is probably required to analyze if a setting applies to only CKEditor syntax or would be also by used for installs using dokuwiki syntax/engine.

I can also imagine enable/disable features based on Flyspray user permissions. (but that requires not only CKEditor config, but also server side changes like HTMLpurifier settings.)

Languages

Just choose all languages available in the CKBuilder.

Probably we need to adjust the CKEditor to use the users Flyspray language settings too. I changed my language to french in a test install but the CKEditor still shows german user interface. (probably detected by browser http request headers)

Compare that the used language abbreviations work together between files in lang/ of Flyspray and that of CKEditors. (Flyspray: lang/pt_br.php vs. CKEditor: js/ckeditor/lang/pt-br.js)

Theme selection

Probably use a CKEditor source maintained Moona-Lisa or Moona as these are easier to modify their color themes like auto light/dark mode browser detection or base colors that match the theme.

Moona Color currently has issues and not maintained by CKEditor guys.

Plugins

The previous contained CKEditor 4.4.7 probably hat the standard preset used.

Following I keep track of plugins we should add to the basic preset. This list is growing/edited until the final config that ships with Flyspray is found.

Mentions

This would enable choosing a user by their username, like @peterdd.

Requires writing an extra php file for retrieving a matching list of users, that respects current user permissions and status of users (like not fetch disabled users).
This extra php file could be also used for the editor textareas with a dokuwiki toolbar.

Auto Grow

This is just a promising usability improvement. No scrollbars needed when writing longer texts.

Turns just typed urls like https://www.flyspray.org into real links (like dokuwiki does it when rendered on page.)

Baloon Toolbar

This just sound like a promising usability improvement. Not tried yet. Only add when there is use case (other plugins usability profit from it) for Flyspray.

Blockquote

Probably required because existing Flyspray installs had it too and citing a comment/text snippet should be also able.

Code Snippet

Probably requires deeper look how secure integrate with server side cleanup (HTMLpurifier).

Format

h1-h6 and other tags. Probably required as previous Flyspray versions used that too. (TODO: What happens to old content with h1-h6 tags when editing with a CKEditor without the Format plugin?)

Also configure it to accept only tags useful for within Flyspray. (see also server side configuration of HTMLPurifier)

Remove Format

Existing Flysprays had this too and probably a good thing when the user can cleanup their word/whateverwhere pasted stuff cleaned before HTMLpurifier does it server side too with maybe surprises to the end user.

Show Blocks

Gives the user some confidence on command if his current editing has the right/intended structure.

Well, that missing is one of the reasons why I hated WYSIWYG or wannabe WYSIWYG editors in the past. Uncertainty by the end user, and pain for the admin/webmaster when he sees the garbage stored in the database (endless spans and other garbage tags partly wrong nested by just pasting from Word documents.)
(little bug in CKEditor 4.13.0: doesn’t expand the area with plugin Auto Grow enabled)

Source Editing Area

Useful for people that can read HTML or are responsible to fix things.

2587Backend/CoreTODOMediumdisplay_errors=1 should not set in release candidateUnconfirmed
0%
18.12.201918.12.2019 Task Description

display_errors = 1 should not set in include/fix.inc.php for releases or releases candidate, because with this it is not possibele to disable the error reporting globaly.

The problem is, if I want to enable full error reporting to logfile via “error_log=…” in php.ini, then the error will also full reported to user. Full error reporting is a hig risk for security.

Did you installed an official release or did you used an inoffical docker?!
flyspray-1.0-rc9

Steps done to create the problem:
Create a file php.in in base directory with follow contens:
error_reporting = E_ALL | E_STRICT
log_errors = On
display_errors = Off
error_log = /var/log/php-flyspray-errors.log

Expected behavior:
Errors only to log file

Experienced behavior:
All errors goes also to user.
The option “display_errors = Off” has no effect.

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 (flyspray-master.zip 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 github.com 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 https://github.com/Flyspray/flyspray/releases , 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 https://github.com/Flyspray/flyspray/releases
  6. Upload the created .zip and .tgz files to https://github.com/Flyspray/flyspray.github.io/tree/master/packed stored since 1.0-rc2 only on https://github.com/Flyspray/flyspray/releases to avoid redundancy
  7. Test the created blobs on different servers too.
  8. Edit the https://github.com/Flyspray/flyspray.github.io/blob/master/_docs/download.md 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 www.flyspray.org frontpage on https://github.com/Flyspray/flyspray.github.io/tree/master/_posts/News
  10. Send an email to the Flyspray mailing list
  11. Important: If all is nice and shiny: Update the version string on www.flyspray.org https://github.com/Flyspray/flyspray.github.io/blob/master/version.txt 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 bugs.flyspray.org for releases? :-)

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.
