Re: General plugin question: replacing core files?

On looking at your GH code, and this is why it's great to code share, I see your code is doing an echo of the desired header markup. But the doc says the Return Value of the function gets inserted into the doc being built. So I recommend you change echo to return to see if that results in an overrid...

Re: General plugin question: replacing core files?

Not to bore anyone but just to explain why I jumped in here: I've been a developer for about 40 years. While not a PHP pro in a long list of language skills, I do a lot of noodling with modern FOSS, and that requires frequent excursions with PHP. For websites I use WordPress extensively (highly reco...

Re: General plugin question: replacing core files?

Rather than replacing entire files, I believe you want to make use of the Event system. See chapter 5 in the docs for specific events, and chapter 4 for how to hook into them. Similarly, rather than replacing CSS, the whole point of CSS is that user sheets can overload/supercede whatever comes befor...

Email notifications, projects, and global access

If a Manager has global access, and we set all managers to receive notifications, does the manager need to be added to a project to get notifications from that specific product?

Or does global access also imply global, unassigned notifications?

Thanks.

Re: Email Settings for Company Email not sending emails

$g_return_path_email = 'email@domain.com'; must be same as $g_smtp_username = 'email@domain.com'; Can anyone verify that this is really a requirement? I set my returnpath to an alias that agrees with the From, not an actual address which gets assigned many aliases. Is this really a "thing"...

My View: Awaiting Feedback from Me

I've created tickets for my client, then set to Feedback status and Assigned to a client/user. But waiting for feedback implies feedback from the author. Is there a correct configuration to request feedback from someone else so that Their view shows that feedback is requested from Them? I suppose af...

Re: Hyperlinks as 123:456

OK, I've found that if I use #123 ~456 with a space between them, Mantis changes the space to a colon to show 123:456 as a single link.
That's cool and I'm happy, just didn't know the trick.
Thanks!

File attachment requires chmod 777?

With 2.8.0 I was getting the error 505 until I finally changed the perms of my attachments folder to 777. I don't think that's safe but I'm open to correction. I can put the folder outside of the web space: /var/www/tracker/attachments rather than inside web space where it's open to the public: /var...

Respectfully, I demonstrated that I already know how to change linking. I asked specific questions that are not answered in the doc. Thanks.

Capability : View Project vs Manage Project?

I have $g_manage_project_threshold = ADMINISTRATOR so that managers don't mess with project details. But it's OK if they see a list of projects and categories in read-only mode. I know there is Not a setting $g_view_project_threshold, but is there another way to accomplish this goal? Same could be s...

Hyperlinks as 123:456

I've seen references to issue:note in the mantisbt.org tracker. What's the syntax to create that elegant link? Are you guys using #123:~456? Are you copy/pasting the link associated with a note so that it renders as 123:456 ? I'm just setting up a new environment and have changed the simple referenc...

Creating a sandbox / test project

I'd like to create a test project where new users can experiment. This should be a sandbox that's separated from other projects to avoid tests from showing in lists, effectiveness, etc. I'd like to avoid creating a completely separate environment but it looks like this might be the best option for t...

Re: MantisBT 2.0/2.1: Customizing Strings

Just stumbled on this issue. v2.8.0 and the doc still suggests the new format.

OK, so how does a prolific writer with book credits, former QA manager, current business owner, and eager MantisBT user prove his worth and get access to update the Admin Guide?
