Summary0025986: Mantis remembering filter and free word search entries

How do I stop Mantis from remembering previously entered filters / searches.

E.G. If I go to "View Issues" and set the filters, add a search term and do a search and then close or go off of the page, the next time I go to "View Issues" the filters and search term is set with the previous settings.

How can I set this to automatically clear search terms and reset filters.

This behavior is by design, and I don't think it is possible to do what you want. Maybe @cproensa can comment, he knows this stuff better than I do.

That being said, clearing the filter is just 1 click away with the [x Reset] button...

Right. It's by design.

By changing the source code, modifying this function in filter_api.php, to alwys return true:

function filter_user_can_use_persistent( $p_user_id = null ) {
    return !user_is_anonymous( $p_user_id );

Based on provided feedback, we won't be changing this in core, so I'm closing this issue as "won't fix".

Feel free to experiment with the given suggestion, at your own risk of course.
