Summary0007759: Widget for Mantis

If you are using the YaHoo widget engine, you now can have an overview of your Mantis issues thru a widget.
Attached a beta version, look forward to your comments.

This is an adaptation of a similar development for DotProject by Frank Hönisch & Thorsten Fentz.

Hi cas,

this widged looks fine, but it seems to have problems with mantis running on a server in our local network environment.

I have set up the configuration to access my local server, but it always shows "No connection to Web-Server. Check Server status or preferences!"

Best Regards,

What are your server settings for the server address ?

You can test with ""
and "".

As user use "Cas".

Hi Cas,

Sounds like a good idea. I have a couple of comments:

  1. The Mantis URL in the readme file is incorrect.

  2. It would be great if you can include screen capture so that it is easy for people to see a preview and get a feel of what they can do using the widget.

I've installed the Yahoo Widget's engine to try this out and I am unable to open the Mantis widget. The ones that came with the engine have extension .widget and this one has .kon. How can we make a .widget out of it? It will also probably compress all the images and the xml in one thing.

Also it is important to note that the script that should be placed on the server is not secure and would expose the server to SQL injection attack. Use Mantis APIs when possible and use the gpc_api.php to get the query / post parameters. Also use database_api.php to prepare parameters before using them in an SQL query.

Your comments are absolutely valid and I am in the process of reviewing this little add-on with those in mind. I have only one big issue called time (sounds familiar doesn't it?).
As soon as i have something neww, will report it here.

Considering that Yahoo ended support for Widgets back in 2012, I don't see the point in keeping this open.
