2.02120.10.200917.01.2013 Task Description

I would love a option to allow anom users to write comments! Maybe with CAPCHA...
I allow anom users to report bugs, but when I have a question to this bug, or the reporter wants to make a additions, he has to register...

I tried hacking it in the core: In the class.user.php at the end of the get_perms method I added:
$this→perms[$proj_id]['add_comments'] = 1;

But I has nothing changed. The I removed the check if the user had the right to make a comment in the template file, now I have a comment field for everyone, but anom user get a error message saying, that they should enter a comment... I searched a lot in the core files, but I don´t find the point where the comment a written in the database... I would a great help if you could give at least a hint :)

Another thing i tried was changing the user contructor, that every user with a negative ID get the ID 2, witch is a special "anom" user. But then you could not log out, a the admin not in...

Maybe the whole “click to active for editing this field” to one click too much.
So if the user has the rights to edit the value the form input or action button should be shown when viewing a task.
All other people just see the value if they have the right to view the value.

Thomasz wrote:
The other thing that I cannot find how to make the text to be visible in the whole column (as with the summary I get the ... at some point of the text).

The root of this is found in scripts/index.php in function tpl_draw_cell():

case 'summary':
            $value = tpl_tasklink($task, utf8_substr($task['item_summary'], 0, 55));
            if (utf8_strlen($task['item_summary']) > 55) {
                $value .= '...';
            }
            break;

We live in a world now, where the view port ranges from 320 pixel width mobile screens up to 4k+ wide tv screens, the amount of columns is configurable from minimal to all available fields of a task. We currently let the browser automatic decide how wide he renders each column depending on table content and available window size.

Well, that ellipsis problem can be handled at different levels:

  • motivate the task creators to use short task summary if possible (e.g. show a hint/tooltip when typing the summary gets over a limit, in our case the hardcoded limit is 55. ). Short task topic/summaries are easier to read/scan for the users.
  • replace the hard ellipsis by a pure css solution, that adapts to users browserwindow size/space in in the columns for summary
  • drop the ellipsis thing complete, task summary always shown full length, table rows adapt in height automatically.

Possible CSS solution:

2128Text RenderingBug ReportLowGeshi (part of dokuwiki plugin for code blocks) uses de...Confirmed
20%
2120.05.201605.05.2019 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;}

When viewing a project via the tasklist, there are a series of checkboxes available. If a user in a group with “modify own tasks” checks a box on a ticket - no matter who actually owns it - they are given a list of options to change it with.

This should not happen. The checkboxes should only be available from the tasklist if the user can actually edit the tickets they’d be next to.

peterdd7122.11.201629.07.2019 Task Description

I understand this is likely due to some sort of XSS CSRF protection, but the delay doesn’t appear to be long enough to be useful for a lengthy comment to be posted. I’ve now lost two detailed comments in our tracker because the software threw everything out and generated a meaningless error.

Further, attempting to do the normal thing and making the browser resubmit the page results in Flyspray throwing “Error #3” something something repeated action and causing a redirect to the homepage.

Surely there has to be a better way to handle this that doesn’t incur data loss?

22.11.200818.04.2009 Task Description

In version 0.9.9.5.1 (unfortunately I couldn't select this version in the dropdown list on the left), reminders can only be created and edited by Admins and Project Managers. I recommend to give Assignees the permission to create reminders for themselves. To minimize any programming impact, his may be done as part of the "edit own tasks" permission.

This topic has been reported by Engie as part of Bug #713 for version 0.9.8 as well: "Also it would be useful if a user could create reminder for himself." Although that bug is already closed ("fixed in devel"), this part is not yet solved in the current version.

For a combination of archiving / "notify bot" reasons I have found it useful to have a single global notification address where all bug reports / updates / comments go.

In the past I've used this to automatically dump updates into a IRC / Jabber chat room as well as provide a way for a project manager (me) to keep an idea of the amount of activity. Please let me know if you have questions about this.

0%
1.1 devel301.05.201220.03.2015 Task Description

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.

You can also search by a user name. This will make things faster to find that specific user.

1836Backend/CoreFeature RequestLowNeed permission option to view only own tasksPlanned
80%
1.1 devel727.02.201322.04.2015 Task Description

In global permissions there is 'View tasks'. This makes it so a user can view all tasks. Need a way instead that they can view only their own tasks, for example a permission called 'View own tasks'.

If 'View own tasks' is checked for a user, in the project list we should only show projects which contain tickets that that user is a part of. Within a given project we should then only show tickets that the user is a part of if they have that permission set.

So for example if 'View tasks' is set, show user all tasks. 'View tasks' is not set, but 'View own tasks' is set then show them only their own tasks and projects.

2.0127.03.201306.03.2015 Task Description

Hello,
when I wanted to use Flyspray to manage request from non-technical customer, I found one missing feature:

I have "report a problem" link on devel version of web site. But to submit new task, it is necessary to login into Flyspray.

It would be nice if there was an URL with login form if user is not logged in and "add new task" form if he is logged in.

Example scenario:
- Customer visits devel site after some time and finds some problem. He wants to report it.
- Customer clicks "report a problem" on the devel site and Flyspray is opened.
- Customer now see some wierd error message and has no idea what is wrong. If anonymous reports are allowed, he sees the form, but cannot upload screenshots and he must enter his e-mail address.

How it should be:
- Customer visits devel site after some time and finds some problem. He wants to report it.
- Customer clicks "report a problem" on the devel site and Flyspray is opened.
- Customer sees login form and (if anonymous reports are allowed) there is also "add new task" form below the login form.
- Customer clicks "login" (password is saved in browser).
- Customer now can fill report with all the comfort.

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.

0%
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
