Search tracker from page header?

Post by Starbuck » Apr 03, 2018 3:41 pm

A constantly nagging UX issue seems to be that in order to search the tracker for text we need to go to the View Issues page first, where a search is part of a full query.

Does anyone else feel like the text box in the page header for Issue# should include the ability to search for text? Enter text there, and rather than go to the "APPLICATION ERROR #203" page when an Issue# isn't found, open the view page, insert the text into the search box, and then search on that.
If you want Mantis to work differently, use or create a plugin. Visit the Plugins forums.
Ask developers to create a plugin that you need - and motivate them to help you!

Updated tracker with link back to this thread. Perhaps we can get a few +1's to support the request.
The plugin referenced in the tracker is no longer available (searched GH plugins repo).
