Re: New User Quick Reference documentation?

Ooooooooooo - you are so on top of all of those references. I'm impressed! :mrgreen:
Definitely ambrosia, but while stuck on this planet the latte will have to do.

We have guests through next week and I'll have to publish the doc later next week. I hope that's OK.

Re: New User Quick Reference documentation?

My business is a one-man shop for the most part. I have many clients of different sizes with different needs. I have many colleagues around the world, and we collaborate on some projects. I've introduced MantisBT to my clients and colleagues, and everyone who gets started with it loves it after that...

Re: Piority field colorised

This request got me thinking about a more global solution to this kind of customization.
Please see this proposal for a plugin and a new event type.

Proposal for Context-Sensitive CSS Plugin

In response to a challenge to customize the display of a specific field in the bug view, I was thinking about a more global solution. This is significant because it's a proposal to change the way most fields in the environment are displayed. Consider event hooks in all HTML-generating code which all...

Re: Extend rest api

I hear ya. My main work is with C# and Java too, so I stutter a bit when I get into PHP. I also did ASP in the 90's so we're on the same page. You'll notice that while I helped to create and administer this plugin section, I don't post code, for lack of expertise with PHP and lack of knowledge of th...

Access Denied to administrator

Running v2.21.0 over Linux with (I didn't install this) PHP v5.6.40. I have a private project. Users are two admins and two reporters. The project has been locked down so that reporters can only see their own posts. (That might be a clue.) A ticket was created by a reporter and of course set to New ...

Re: Theme Plugin BeachSide

@MadkaT - That's pretty cool. I suggest you offer your services for a fee. End-users with MantisBT tend to be companies with a need to do extensive issue tracking. These companies appreciate FOSS but they also need to appreciate the value of keeping developers alive to write more FOSS. The model I s...

Re: Example of custom authentication provider with SampleAuth

The approach I would take with this is to look into the Mantis code to see how it determines whether a user is logged in, and what it does when a user is not. Then: Is there a hook there for alternative behavior? If so, look to see what a hooked event handler needs to accept and return. If not, see ...

Re: Extend rest api

@federico - Let's be specific. What would you like to add to the API? Maybe we can clone and adapt code, then submit a GH PR.

As to OO, PHP is now pretty good with OO. I suggest you look for existing code and model after the good examples.

Re: Better solution than MantisBT

Good points... @cas is right that we need to use Mantis as-intended. It's not a tool for a site that already has very rigid rules. But my experience tells me that for a site that does not track issues effectively, that MantisBT helps to establish good practices. I have helped a few companies to esta...

No prob. If you'd ike to discuss plugin creation, check out the forum section dedicated to that topic. (See my sig) Just a note - I'm no expert in the area and don't have a lot of time right now to provide many details. My goal is to provide a forum for such discussions, to attract "like minds" to s...
