This issue has been open and acknowledged for 4 years?

Since I use Mantis as a public bug tracker and I want untrained users to correctly use tags it would be of huge benefit if I could make it possible to add tags from the initial Report. Any chance of this at all?

You can greatly increase your chances of this happening, by submitting a patch or even better a github pull request for this feature.

This issue has been open and acknowledged for 6 years?

The response I received to this, while true, was so unhelpful I was too annoyed to bother responding at the time.
If there was anything else to the message than "you do it, we can't be bothered" then it would have come across better.

I've stopped using Mantis. There are other, more friendly solutions out there.
The fact that THIS issue tracker instance has "new" issues last touched in 2004 means it isn't doing it's job.

XCompWiz, Open source products (especially the ones where non payed volunteers are working in their free time on it) need people that contribute to the product to get enhancements.

Complaining does not help.

All contributions are welcome and greatly appreciated.

Yes, I'm aware, sorry for coming off as grumpy and whining. I'm just still annoyed with the original response.

The last part of my message I stick to, though, though I think it should be reframed, and it probably isn't worth while to discuss it here:
"Has Mantis reached the end of its useful lifetime (It was fantastic in its time), given that there are easier to use solutions with more energy behind them now?"
Just food for thought, not really a proper place to discuss it.

I can fully grasp the volunteer work concept, as I used Mantis as a tracker for my own project which is not paid. Only real difference was that it is a closed source project, so I do all the work.
Perhaps it's too easy to fall into the "its open source, so if you want something you should make it" and "its open source, so someone else will do it." Those two conjoined pits seem to swallow a lot of open source projects, and that's most of what annoyed me, I think; that the response was basically an admission that Mantis had, too.

I'm not at all familiar with the Mantis codebase, or else I would have made such a pull request to begin with. At this juncture it's not worth the time and effort to learn the codebase, as I stopped using Mantis for various reasons over a year ago.

Good luck with all. :)

I just feel compelled to respond to your comments. You said you were annoyed by my response; I understand your reaction and I'm sorry for not having taken the time for a friendlier note. On the other hand, I'd like to say that I was similarly annoyed by your own comment. We get a lot of these, and while I usually ignore them or try to be more constructive/helpful, I guess I was having a bad day when I responded to you.

We are a very small team, and just lack the resources to implement all the bug fixes and features that get requested here, and as you've noticed, we even don't have time to respond or follow up with them. Because of that, we have to rely on our users to contribute patches; so my comment basically a poorly written request for "help me help you".

I regret you decided to stop using Mantis.

I've forked he code and used the master 1.2.x branch to make a fix, but then thought i should check in with devs to see if this feature should go into a different branch. I see some ToDo comments suggesting things like parsing the CSV of tags should go into the API layer. How would you prefer i implement this feature? If in the 1.2.x branch, i see at least 3 files needing updates:

  • bug_reportpage.php - copy the $tpl and other variables from bug_view_inc along with <tr> from the tpl_can_attach_tag block
  • Somehow hide the Attach button - we want to just create a CSV of tags on the bug_report_page. This likely means modifying print_api.php's print_tag_attach_form function or else copying it to not have the submit button and using that copy
  • Update bug_report.php so it will also take in tags, split the CSV and store them just like tag_attach.php

New features should be targeted at master branch (1.3.x) only.

Kindly submit a pull request at Github with your proposed patch.

Does not work for me using Safari Version 9.1.1 (11601.6.17)

Sometimes I am not able to add any tag from list of tags, sometimes I am able to add one tag but are not able to add a second one. After trying to add a second one I am no longer able to open the tag list.

I am not able to reproduce it using FF or Chrome.

I am not able to reproduce it using Safari when trying to add tags to existing issues (view.php).

@vboctor, does this work for you using Safari?

@atrol This works fine for me on Safari Version 9.1.1 (11601.6.17)

@atrol, can you check the javascript console to see if there are errors that can provide a hint of what is going on.

developer   ~0054874

There are no errors in console related to tags, just the known CSP violation caused by our custom footer for Google Analytics.

I am not able to reproduce the issue on my own 1.3.x test installation.

developer   ~0055681

Setting to resolved as there is no longer an environment where it can reproduced.
There is no problem in 2.x using Safari Version 10.0.3 (12602.4.8).
