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 0.9.9.7) 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.

2018User InterfaceBug ReportLowreview keyboard navigationResearching
50%
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

1.1 devel218.07.201519.09.2015 Task Description

If on the reports page some get params aren't set, there are notice warnings on the report result page

like

index.php?do=reports&events[]=30

without start date,end date,result size

But it can be useful to have a bit shorter urls for sharing between authorized users instead the full params url.

Result page should use user default and project default settings fallbacks for the unset get params.

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.

1.1 devel4112.04.201309.07.2018 Task Description

When some url to a bug is redirected to the login page, because the user does not have the right to see the bug without login, the user should be redirected after the login to the url he wanted to see.

Maybe redirect to /login/?next=/task/X and put the next-url in a hidden field in the login-form, so flyspray can redirect to the correct page after login.
Even preserving anchor-urls (#comment-YYYY) would be cool, but i guess this needs Javascript to work.

1967User InterfaceBug ReportLowKeep browser scroll position when sorting task listNew
20%
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.

1982Backend/CoreBug ReportLowdouble entries in assignees listNew

1.1 devel320.03.201511.02.2016 Task Description

maybe yet fixed in 1.0 dev, but here bugs.flyspray.org my account is shown twice for selection if u edit a task.

Internally in the form also with the same id, so probably not a big problem.

I registered some years ago, maybe this year jordan(?) added me again or with another email adress? Maybe I have two addresses under on account here, which is a feature, not a bug.

But for the assignee list it should “group by user_id”.

2317User InterfaceBug ReportMediumDate format wrongConfirmed

1.1 devel122.11.201622.11.2016 Task Description

In some parts of the world (primarily the US), the date is viewed as Month/Day/Year. However, all options in the current rc4 build are listed as Day/Month/Year aside from one, which goes ShortWrittenMonth/Day#/Year#.

This is poor from a customer perspective, and can be highly confusing. I can change the date globally to a correct format in the database, but this doesn’t help much as every user can select their own date which has all incorrect formats.

 2098 User InterfaceBug ReportMedium Attached image cannot be downloaded Closed
100%
1.1 devel530.01.201617.02.2020 Task Description

Steps:

- 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.

2053Backend/CoreBug ReportLowambiguous user name display username / realnameNew
0%
1.1 devel217.09.201519.02.2020 Task Description

With the existence of now two peoples named “Peter” on bugs.flyspray.org (I - peterdd , and PeterTheOne)
there are several places where the full names are display instead of usernames and the user can’t know who is which “Peter” until he visits the users profile page.

Different solutions possible:

  • more profile image/gravatar usage where user names are shown, on mouseover link title attribute shows username and realname
  • display user name (username) instead of full name (realname)
  • display full name and username (where much space available and precision needed)

When adding the mention feature, the username will be probably the prefered setting as the username is unique but the realname not.

Ability to click field to edit ticket

TODO: return handler if request ok or fail.

TODO: also clicks on label should trigger show form.

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.

1753Backend/CoreFeature RequestMediumUsergroup Restriction: Only View SummaryConfirmed
0%
1.1 devel4220.06.201227.06.2016 Task Description

I was really impressed with Flyspray and about to use it as our bug tracker, but then I discovered quite a big problem. You can't restrict users from seeing full task details.

I would really love the ability to let them only see the summary. My reason being is that I'm needing a bug tracker for my game, and bugs reported can be easily abused, and will be abused, if people can just read bug reports and see how to replicate them.

The reason I don't like just unchecking the "View Tasks" option, is because they wont be able to see if there is already a task about the bug, so we would just get flooded with duplicate reports on the same bugs.

2019User InterfaceFeature RequestMediumtitle -tag Waiting on Customer
0%
1.1 devel26.07.201526.07.2015 Task Description

I vote for removing $fs->prefs['page_title'] from title-tag.

Comments welcome!

Explanation:

When the user has many open flyspray tabs, he cannot distinguish them at the first look, because the tab header is filled with redundant information of the systemwide 'page_title' name.

But the browsers also show the favicon.ico of the website (BTW: we need a better one, with some color - and the big webapp icons too for iPhone & co..)
So the user has indication that the tab is a flyspray tab and the page_title text is redundant and wasted space there.

Also search engines could better represent search results if they group together the results from one website. (google shows most relevant pages together if google is sure the whole website is the best search result for the search query (ranked #1)

It would be great to sort the task list by recent activity. This would mean any change to an issue, including new comments, would rise to the top. This would make it easy to keep up on recent discussion even if you don't want to get every single detail via notifications.

2118User InterfaceFeature RequestLowShow overview of existing tags for usersAssigned
20%
peterdd1.1 devel09.04.201626.10.2019 Task Description

At several places it could be useful to let the user view available tags:

  1. When editing a task a toggle popup could show a list of selectable and existing tags.

I found several nice vanilla-js-multiselect-with-autocompletion scripts, but none yet that still works at a basic level when javascript is turned off.

My plan is now:

  • Keep the current basic input text field for input tags and show current assigned tags like exampletag1;exampletag2;exampletag3 separated by ‘;’ that is sent to the server when saving the task and server handles evaluation of that string (validation, duplicates, removed, added, creating new tags if allowed for current user)
  • A CSS only toggle that shows available tags that can be assigned (works even with js turned off), similiar to other places within Flyspray like advanced search toggle.
  • If js turned off, the user must type the tag - not as fancy, but at least works. (I thought also about using a html select with multiple=”multiple” attribute, but was not convinced due styling not possible in modern browsers without js)
  • If js is enabled, more fancier stuff is possible:
    • The input text field is hidden by display:none and instead the styled tags are shown.
    • The current added tags also get a little x to remove a tag by clicking it. The content of the hidden input text field is updated to reflect the current editing status. (click eventlistener)
    • A generated text input field for typing with autocompletion list shown of matching availbale tags. An unknown tag is added to the list if user is allowed to create tags. Clicking a item in the autocompletion list adds the tag and resets the autocompletion input text field for the next autocompletion action.
    • The tags within the toggle list with all available tags get also a click event listener, so clicking it adds them to the hidden text input.
    • Not sure yet if an added tag should be removed from the all available tags list or just make an CSS indication that a tag is still added, currently I tend to keep the list untouched, just highlight used tags of the task.
  • Optionally make the all available tags sortable by:
    • list_position (default)
    • alphabetic
    • global or project level
    • popularity (count of tasks using a tag (n + unnumbered private)), requires adding a data attribute.
    • group by detected prefix like shape:triangle shape:circle shape:rectangle could show a group of tags as: shape: triangle circle rectangle
  1. Make the list of tags searchable for the advanced search. added with FS1.0-rc10 by just using search key words also for searching list_tags table.

1.1 devel122.06.201509.09.2015 Task Description

In the task list the responsible persons are shown as "first person name, +n" where n are the count of further responsible persons.

I think this can be done a bit better.

Ideas:

  • show as it is now, but on css :hover show all persons
  • use initials like "CR FS JM" for Cristian R., Florian S., Jordan M. and on css :hover show a list with the full names, this can make the column width a bit smaller.
  • use tiny avatar icons in a row like you can see here https://github.com/Flyspray/flyspray/blob/master/header.php for example, and showing the names on css :hover.
