Just moved issue #110 from to here for centralized task tracking.

Maybe just needs testing with current github master.

2139User InterfaceFeature RequestVery LowAdd project setting of popular used programming languag...New
1.1 devel17.06.201617.06.2016 Task Description

This is at the moment just a bit brainstorming ..:

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 at the dokuwiki editor buttonbar.

This requires probably an additional database field in the flyspay_projects table (if just used for dokuwiki that should be ok)

If thinking further like Filter me all software projects that may ontain CSS code on the projects overview, a m:n-table setup is thinkable. But thats maybe overengineering..
Or can we use the existing tag-feature for that and just ‘tag’ projects with tags?

 1584 Backend/CoreFeature RequestLow Configuration: Header of emails Closed
1.1 devel307.07.200909.03.2015 Task Description

Could be nice to add our own Header of the emails, for example, if my project is named FOO, i will receive emails like "FOO", but if I own differents websites, could be nice to know from which one Im receiving the email from, so could be nice to set our own header (or it is just the name from?) of the emails, in order to receive something like "FOO Bugs"

When you set 'address_rewriting' to '1' and activate the .htaccess, the arrow in front of the last visited task doesn't work.

 1979 User InterfaceTODOHigh Update Closed
1.1 devel1218.03.201511.07.2016 Task Description

This site itself should be updated immediately to the current alpha version. We should eat our own dogfood.

  • modification in on with password_hash() wasn’t ported to 1.0dev version, so some users of aren’t able to login now??? need to reset her password..? You just need to change passwdcrypt param from ‘md5’ (was default until FS1.0-rc1) to ‘crypt’.
 2098 User InterfaceBug ReportMedium Attached image cannot be downloaded Closed
1.1 devel530.01.201617.02.2020 Task Description


- 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.

 1885 Backend/CoreFeature RequestLow Change possible to change task attribute for a selected ...Closed
1.1 devel109.01.201418.07.2016 Task Description

The idea is to select some tasks on the tasklist and select on action to (for example)

  • Change the “Due in version”
  • change the status
  • increase/decrease severity/priority
  • ...
 1942 User InterfaceFeature RequestLow Able To add a comment while editing a task Closed
1.1 devel13.11.201424.11.2015 Task Description

There was a “nice to have feature” in the bluey them that allowed you to edit a task and add a comment at the same time that showed the changes, Can this be implememented into cleanFS if possible

comment field after editing:

Field changed: Status (Unconfirmed → New)
Field changed: Percent Complete (0% → 40%)
 937 User InterfaceTODOLow New fancy layout for 1.0 Closed
1.1 devel57229.05.200619.07.2018 Task Description

For version 1.0 we need a nice new layout for Flyspray.

Some ideas so far:

  • The theme should be bright, clean, modern and colourful.
  • Comments could be displayed like messages on Google groups (complies to the mentioned requirements), see attachments
  • The menu needs to be changed. It probably has to be vertical in future, but in any case (the only point that matters) it should be possible to add more menu items without requiring a higher screen resolution (width)
  • the new theme should use unstyled input elements
  • the layout of all forms should be unified. I like the layout of phpbb for example (see attachment)

Layout bugs/problems that should be fixed:

Currently we don’t have anyone who is able to do this (I would like to, but I am not very good at it), so if anyone is skilled at making things look good (without creating an image-heavy layout like some at css Zen Garden) he can let us know.

More ideas are welcome and will be added to the description.

 1835 Backend/CoreBug ReportHigh Upgrade to 1.0 requires dokuwiki syntax vs. free text/h ...Closed
1.1 devel626.02.201319.09.2015 Task Description

As a result of adding CKEditor we now need to nicely handle previous installs data where dokuwiki syntax is still in situ.

To be completed in line with the upgrade process which also requires work.

Edit 2015-03-11 peterdd: Dokuwiki plugin will probably still be the default syntax plugin for FS 1.0. CKeditor with free HTML input adds too many security issues which weren’t not enough considered before. So we think Dokuwiki as the default is the better option for the release of 1.0.

Older installs of Flyspray use dokuwiki format.
Peoples who just used the later dev versions (after of Flyspray used ckeditor/html as text format.

So the Flyspray userbase consists of 2 different content formats. We plan to provide automatic conversion options when doing upgrades of existing installations.

 2011 Backend/CoreFeature RequestLow last modified table sorting Closed
1.1 devel18.07.201520.07.2018 Task Description

If you sort the task result list by last modified date, it ignores the tasks, that are new created, but not changed.

I think better is to sort by create date too when sorting by modifed date.

  • Either we do it by a modified sql sorting rule using both date fields.
  • Or we just save the the creation date also in the modified field on the creation, so this field is never empty or null. (this would be the easiest)

In the 2nd solution the upgrade sql script should write the task creation datetime to the modifed datetime field
Something like

UPDATE tasks SET modified=created WHERE modified='' or modified IS NULL
 2056 Backend/CoreFeature RequestLow Do not do pagination on csv export  Closed
1.1 devel17.09.201505.10.2015 Task Description

The result of pressing the task list csv export button should not do pagination (limit on the database query)

The wanted download of the csv is in most cases a complete list of the task list search. So users can it simple import into OpenOffice Calc, LibreOffice Calc, MS Excel or for importing it somewhere else like another database.

Implementation of this task should be quite easy by just ignoring the limit and offset, because the same query is used for task list viewing and csv export.
