Bug tracker

Bug tracker available at:


hi, i was waiting for years to get a bugtracker like this. thanks a lot.

IMHO, it would be nice, you remove the alert-dialog after opening a new report. further i recommend an edit-function to modify reported bugs (with dropdowns for status and severity). at the moment you can change details of existent reports accidentally. and i have to reload the page again, after opening a new report, to see the result in my buglist (i'm using 'nocache', but without any success).

nice to have: i would be very cool to get a dropdown for assign bugs to registered users with an automatic generated mail to his/her mail-addy. second: i prefer not to split the buglists into different projects by default. it's a nice and maybe useful feature, but i could also need a huge buglist over all projects (perhaps via input-text in the openform?).

hi, it would be nice to have a query that only gets the number of (all, open, closed, etc…) bugs

hi, if this plugin does not work, rename the folder of the plugin and delete that “latest” postfix …. works for me :)

Hi, it would be very nice to have a bugs summary when you have several projects. maybe dokumicrobugtracker>projects=all

Hi, this plugin is a good use case and worth to be enhanced. Therfore I put some issues to the bugtracker of your home.


Hi, this plugin make me lose part of my syntax icon. I only had the first nine of them. I had to delete the plugin to make my icons reappear. I'm using Angua.

Get Severity configurable

I wanted to have more and other status information available but it should be configurable via Admin configuration. To get this use case running the following things have to be modified.

Step 1: Modify default.php
add following lines to the default.php file

$conf['severity']      = 'Query,Minor,Medium,Major,Critical,Feature Request,';  // or what ever you want to have initially
$conf['status']        = 'New,Assigned,External Pending,In Progress,Solved,Canceled,Double'; // preparation for later improvement

Step 2: Modify metadata.php
add following lines to the meta.php file

$meta['severity']       = array('string');
$meta['status']         = array('string');

Step 3: Create Admin config items

  1. therefore create a languge directory: …\plugins\dokumicrobugtracker\lang\en
  2. create a settings.php file within this directory with following content
 * English language file
 * @license    GPL 2 (
 * @author     
// for the configuration manager
$lang['send_email']    = 'Send email off by default'; 
$lang['email_address'] = 'Whom to inform about new issues';
$lang['use_captcha']   = 'Use captcha'; 
$lang['severity']      = 'Define severity levels you will use';
$lang['status']        = 'Define issue status levels you will use';

Step 4: adapt the syntax.php

  1. function _report_render to be modified as follows
   function _report_render()
        global $lang;
        global $ID;
        // added by Taggic on 2011-07-08
        // load severity values from config file into control
        $STR_SEVERITY = "";
        $severity = explode(',', $this->getConf('severity')) ;
        foreach ($severity as $_severity)
            $STR_SEVERITY = $STR_SEVERITY . '<option value="'.$_severity.'" >'.$_severity."</option>'     ";
        $user_mail = pageinfo();  //to get mail address of reporter
        $ret = '<br /><br /><form class="dokumicrobugtracker__form" method="post" action="'.$_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'].'" accept-charset="'.$lang['encoding'].'"><p>';
        $ret .= formSecurityToken(false).
        '<input type="hidden" name="do" value="show" />'.
        '<input type="hidden" name="id" value="'.$ID.'" />'.
        '<label> User : </label><input class="dokumicrobugtracker__option" name="user" type="text" maxlength="100" value="'.$user_mail['userinfo']['mail'].'"/></p>'.
        '<p><label> Version : </label><input class="dokumicrobugtracker__option" name="version" type="text" maxlength="100" value="'.$_REQUEST['version'].'"/></p>'.
        '<p><label> Severity : </label>'.
        '  <select class="element select small dokumicrobugtracker__option" name="severity">'.
        '       '.$STR_SEVERITY.
        '	 </select></p>'.      
        '<p><label> Description : </label><br /><textarea class="dokumicrobugtracker__option" name="description">'.$_REQUEST['description'].'</textarea></p>';
        if ($this->getConf('use_captcha')==1)  
            $ret .= '<p><img src="'.DOKU_BASE.'lib/plugins/dokumicrobugtracker/image.php" alt="captcha" /><label>what s the result? </label><input class="dokumicrobugtracker__option" name="captcha" type="text" maxlength="3" value=""/></p>';      
        $ret .= '<p><input class="button" type="submit" '.
        'value="Report" /></p>'.
        return $ret;    

To be fair: I posted a further development based on your code due to I'm that impatient to get this plugin running and improved. Please let me know if that disturbs somehow your project, plannings or conflicts otherwise and I will delete my Issue Tracker from the community.
