v2.0 - no ability to bold or highlight text?

Post by atnz »

In v2.0 for the notes, description etc... How can you set highlights for text including bold, italic, numbers, bullet points etc?

I am currently using mantisbt 1.3.5 and bbcodeplus plugins to format text.
download the plugin here https://github.com/mantisbt-plugins/BBCodePlus

Thanks, for Mantis v2.0 is there a recommended WYSIWYG plugin?

I'm kind of surprised that with such a major UI upgrade that WYSIWYG isn't standard...

I don't use any of them.
It should be one which supports Markdown as this will be the official standard format.
I am not sure, but the mentioned bbcodeplus seems not to support it.

Ok, I hope someone is using WYSIWYG plugin that can be used. I dont really care if it uses markdown or not, just the ability to highlight and bullet/number items would be a start....

Certainly your decision. Just keep in mind that you have to migrate your data if you want to change from whatever to Markdown.

We recently installed the BBCodePlus plug-in for both MantisBR version 1.3.4 and 2.0.0 and it seems to work ok.

However, the emails that we receive based on the notes have HTML encoding in them. So we had to modify the email_api.php file and change $t_mail->IsHTML( false); to $t_mail->IsHTML( true );

Regards,
Ron

Checkout the markdown support that was released as part of MantisBT 2.1.0.
