15.01.201815.01.2018 Task Description

Since PHP7.2 shows a warning in admin area ?do=admin&area=users&user_id=1234567890, when user_id is set, but no alternative user_name parameter.

Probably related to scripts/admin.php

$id = Flyspray::UserNameToId(Req::val('user_name'));
if (!$id) {
  $id = Req::val('user_id');

2594Backend/CoreTODOHighpagination of user listAssigned

peterdd1.0-rc1023.02.202012.04.2020 Task Description

For Flyspray installations with many users (several thousands) a pagination of the user list in the admin area is required.

2000 users no problem to display (aside the PHP max_input_vars limit which is only 1000 by default, so maybe not all checked checkboxes are handled.)

More users might send your mysql to long running blocking queries creating temp tables … bad!

(I killed them by watching show processlist; and kill id; on mysql console.)

17.06.201617.06.2016 Task Description

Rethink the current sets of buttons and their functionality.

Maybe a mousover hint/cheatsheet of available dokuwiki syntax is more helpful in writing fast and efficient.

  • buttongroup links http,email,ftp
  • buttongroup code, code php: why a single button for php? maybe a cheatsheet or subselect for choosing a language (read directory plugins/dokuwiki/inc/geshi for that). Or even better: Let the project administrator define what source code languages are used/popular in a software project and dependend of that setting prefer/promote that languages
  • I miss a blockquote- or cite-tag for citation, which is more semantic than bold, italic, underline buttons. Update: It is the > character followed by text!
  • Show a cheatsheet (by mouseover?) of dokuwiki smileys as defined at plugins/dokuwiki/conf , update to current config of dokuwiki, facepalm for instance is missing

2440Backend/CoreFeature RequestLowOption to disable tag featureNew
0%
15.09.201715.09.2017 Task Description

There is a wish on the Flyspray mailing list:

Is there a way of hiding the TAGS input field from the Add New Task form?
Alan

If it is just hiding on that form, there are several options to achieve this (from simple to complex)

A) Hide by CSS

Add that rule to themes/CleanFS/theme.css CSS file:

#edit_tags{display:none;}

B) Hide by CSS (better)

Add a rule to a custom_*.css, for instance themes/CleanFS/custom_mytheme.css

#edit_tags{display:none;}

and choose custom_mytheme.css in your project settings.

D) Edit themes/CleanFS/templates/newtask.tpl directly

and remove the whole div-tag with id=”edit_tags” (all between ‘<div id=”edit_tags>”’ and its closing ‘</div>’ (not recommended)

E) Use a custom template

  1. Create a folder in themes/, for instances themes/mynotagtheme/
  2. Only copy themes/CleanFS/templates/newtask.tpl to themes/mynotagtheme/templates/newtask.tpl
  3. Make the changes to that newtask.tpl like in B) (custom theme not overwritten by Flyspray Updates if you keep or backup your themes/mynotagtheme/ folders, but requires review if something has changed within themes/CleanFS/templates/newtask.tpl between version updates)
  4. Choose your mynotagtheme as project theme. All other files fall back to default themes/CleanFS/

(not tested, but thats the way it should work with current Flyspray 1.0-rc5)

D) Nag or caress someone

to finish tag feature for Flyspray with options/permissions to turn it off per project or project group or something like that.

This would effect not only that newtask form but all places where that options should kick in (listing tags in tasklist, tasklist filters etc)

2005Backend/CoreFeature RequestLowone account, several authenticationsNew

1.1 devel18.07.201518.07.2015 Task Description

Currently it seems a user needs two accounts
to login by normal user-password and oauth2 login with facebook,g+ etc.

Better would be if a normal username-password registered user could connect a oauth2-login with his existing login.

1964DocumentationFeature RequestLowOn page documentationNew

11.03.201511.03.2015 Task Description

This is a parent task for all small helping or explaining tooltips that can be maybe added where approriate.

Many people don't like reading external documentations, which sometimes often is also not up to date with the current used version.

If you are doing something in Flyspray and you don't know exactly how it works or have to be done rigth and you must look at documentation, it breaks your workflow.

The best case is if its all perfect intuitive and you don't have to read any help texts. But in the case of more complex operations or things that do many things behind the scene a helping tooltip or explanation can give you a mental map and more trust into what the tool is doing.

2549User InterfaceBug ReportLowOauth register template always shows "Username already ...Unconfirmed
0%
06.05.201906.05.2019 Task Description

RC9 running on CentOS LAMP stack

Steps done to create the problem:
Set up google as an oauth provider.
Have a user click “Sign in with Google” in the login box.
User connects their account with Flyspray.
Google redirects the user back to Flyspray
The return screen (on flyspray) asks for a username.

Expected behavior:
No warning about duplicate username should be shown on initial page load since no username was entered yet

Experienced behavior:
A warning about the username being already taken is shown.

It appears there is no logic for showing or hiding that warning in register.oauth.tpl

(It would be great if flyspray was able to just use the email as a username to make the UX even better/simpler.)

1.1 devel11.03.201503.11.2015 Task Description
  • On the myprofile page have a section to show all my votes I put on tasks. done!
  • Add the possibility to remove own votes from tasks. done!
  • Implement a limitation of the amount of votes a user can put on tasks for a project. Can be enabled/disabled and amount configured. Done!
  • project based vote limitation
  • When a task is finished/closed, remove the user votes from the task and make that vote again available to the user. Maybe safe the existing historic voting count in an extra field of the task as the votes would drop to 0 on closing the task. removed.

We keep the votes, because a task can be reopened everytime and then the old voters and votes should be visible again. In this case the amount of votes on active task could be a bit greater than allowed, but thats no real problem.
The calculation of done votes and available votes based only on open task and project voting limit.

For example on uservoice.com you have 10 voting points. So you as user has to decide where your priorities are to put your votes.

So all users have more or less the same power to vote for tasks.

0%
06.06.201906.06.2019 Task Description

The shortcuts help infobox should adapt to the current page type.

So when in editing a task for instance, the n (next task) and p (previous task) shortcuts are not available for a good reason. Listing them there with same priority as other keys then is not helpful.

The simpliest solution is probably putting some if-statements depending on the $do variable into CleanFS/templates/shortcuts.tpl ..

2023NotificationsFeature RequestLowInform users if reminder is disabled in system settingsNew
0%
04.08.201504.08.2015 Task Description

There are 5 possible cases that IMHO should be handled more user friendly:

  1. There is no cronjob for the reminder (schedule.php) setup → Reminders are never sent
  2. Reminding is disabled in the global settings → Reminders are never sent
  3. Reminder setting 'email' only → Reminders are only sent to users who set their notification setting to 'email' or 'both' and setup an email address
  4. Reminder setting 'jabber' only → Reminders are only sent to users who set their notification setting to 'jabber' or 'both' and setup a jabber address
  5. Project notification setting not set → ??? (research...)
  • If notification is disabled (1. or 2.), the notification tab on 'task details page' should adapt to that I think. (by css style or message or tooltip)
  • If notification is restricted to only one notification channel, the current user should be informed on notification tab on 'task details page' if he would receive notifications with his current notification settings.

26.08.201626.08.2016 Task Description

The user preferences and the add new user screens both allow you to set the timezone offset of the user, however, we are only provided with whole hour offsets from GMT. This makes it impossible to select our timezone here in India, which is GMT+5:30 - IST(Indian Standard Time - Asia/Kolkata as per TZ Zoneinfo). In addition, there are also timezones in the GMT+x:45, which wouild also require to be handled. Note, this is totally independent of DST Changes, since some of the countries use DST(Like in Australia) and others do not(Like India).

Here is a link with more details of the same - http://www.timeanddate.com/time/time-zones-interesting.html

I will be trying to identify and fix the codebase to resolve this, and will hopefully have a patch to submit soon.

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.)

filter_input() is in extension “Filter”.
