Simple Checkbox custom field

Looking back through this forum I can't find a single example for how to make a simple checkbox custom field work. It's been noted that it's weird and that there may be bugs. I'm hoping someone can provide a solid example of how to make a simple checkbox work. Example: Yes/No, True/False, 1/0 Or mor...

Re: Mantis on Android

(Correcting subject: Mantis on AndroiD) Mantis is Free and Open Source. There is no "official" Android or iOS project. Which apps are you talking about? Any mobile app that uses Mantis data is a completely separate software project by individuals. I found two Mantis apps in the Google Play store. 1)...

Re: Mantis and Wordpress on one only Database

I run Mantis and WordPress together a lot.I know what you're talking about with the prefixes, and I believe that the two applications can co-exist without conflict. However, I choose to separate the databases. An attack on one can compromise the other. Information posted to one would not be in the o...

Re: 2702 warning on line 227

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.

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 ...
