Summary0007594: Add a custom include page above form in bug_report_*_page.php for tips/guidelines

I want to (and did) include a small HTML file above the bug report form in the bugreport*_page.php files. This allows me to advise reporters (especially if anonymous reporting is turned on, and for public projects) to review the guidelines and tips for creating useful reports. It also allows me to link to a description of the suggested workflow for custom statuses.

When I upgrade to a new version of Mantis, the include() statement in those pages will be overwritten. So, I'm proposing making an include page there a standard feature that can be customized, like with custom headers (g_top_include_page), footers (g_bottom_include_page), etc. Perhaps g_bug_report_tips_include_page?

TagsNo tags attached.

I agree that this would be a good feature. ryandesign was interested in the same feature and I believe he would be interested in implementing it.

Sounds good. If he isn't or doesn't have time, I've already implemented it here, but am not exactly sure how to submit a patch. I can write up the list of changes though, if desired.
