Docs issue tracker

Okay, so the preliminary version of the Docs Issue Tracker is up. Here’s a quick rundown on how it works.

Note: I fully expect it to be slightly buggy at first. 🙂

The issue list can be seen at . You will need to be logged in and also an editor on this make-site to do anything useful here. The dropdown menu on the right is the action menu. You can “accept” an issue, “close” an issue, or “reopen” a closed issue. Again, preliminary, this can be expanded later if needed.

Issue submission can be done at . You will need to be logged in, and when you visit this page, it will force you to do so if you’re not already.

However, it will be the case that we link to this page from other places on the website. I put a link on my Codex page so you can see how this works:

When you click to that submit form from somewhere else, it auto-grabs where you linked here from, and fills in the URLURL A specific web address of a website or web page on the Internet, such as a website’s URL of the problem. There is some sanity and safety checking here, so it won’t work for all links from everywhere. Also note that the link to /issue/submit should always be httpsHTTPS HTTPS is an acronym for Hyper Text Transfer Protocol Secure. HTTPS is the secure version of HTTP, the protocol over which data is sent between your browser and the website that you are connected to. The 'S' at the end of HTTPS stands for 'Secure'. It means all communications between your browser and the website are encrypted. This is especially helpful for protecting sensitive data like banking information., because of referer restrictions when going from https sites to non-https sites. Based on the URL, the location information on the ticket is filled in and so forth.

I know it’s not quite the prettiest. Sorry. HTMLHTML HTML is an acronym for Hyper Text Markup Language. It is a markup language that is used in the development of web pages and websites./CSSCSS CSS is an acronym for cascading style sheets. This is what controls the design or look and feel of a site. suggestions are welcome. Also, pagination is there, just not displayed until there’s more issues. Currently it’s the default of ten per page, I’ll increase that eventually.

Things missing:

  • Stats
  • Re-ordering by status
  • Probably some other stuff

Again, this is a starting point. Things can be added to it, as needed.

Also, please don’t add “test” issues. I’ll do the testing. If you have real issues, feel free to add those. 🙂
