Questions and Comments on IssueTracker 1.0Edit

25 June 2009 Task End Date and Outcome fields ??Edit

HI great extension Would it be useful to others to add the ability to record the actual end date of the task and its outcome ie successful, incomplete, partial etc

Cheers Mark W

April 21, 2009 Where do I configure the Issue list to show all issues instead of 30 items by default in View Issue?Edit


// public function getIssues($conds, $offset, $limit = 30)

--BertvanderHooft 20:34, 24 October 2009 (UTC)

April 9, 2009: Is there any way to display all the issues and the details entered for those issues?Edit

February 22, 2009: small patch to have text parsed by mediawikiEdit

Hi, we made some minor changes to the code to have the issues parsed by mediawiki. It is available at

Other things that we'd love to see: (besides email notification)

  1. Present title in italic if task is in progress, make it bold if it is marked as ASAP, etc..
  2. Extend title varchar size
  3. When someone is set as assignee, change status to assigned automatically
  4. Natural sort order!

Dead Link for the patch. Where can I find it?

Do you have a robust solution for this because it doesn't work with Mediawiki 1.14 and FCKeditor? The internalParse function fails. I've tried using global $wgParser but it doesn't help. I've solved it temporarily by making the title an implicit anchor but it's not what I wanted. - John Colman

29 August 2008: IssueTracker vs Issue_TrackerEdit

Produkt Version MediaWiki 1.13.0 PHP 5.1.2 (isapi) MySQL 5.0.51a-community-nt-log Windows 2003

On my System the IssueTracker Appears on the specialPage wiki/index.php?title=Spezial:Issue_Tracker (note .. with underline)

but if i klick on add the wiki/index.php?title=Spezial:Issue_Tracker the underline is removed



I searched in the files .. i only found a IssueTracker but no Issue_Tracker!

I had the same issue when installing on Windows (though it worked fine on Ubuntu when I tried.
I fixed it by editing the 'IssueTracker.i18n.php' file replacing line
$messages['en']['issuetracker']    = 'Issue Tracker';
$messages['en']['issuetracker']    = 'IssueTracker'; 21:55, 20 March 2009 (UTC)


I've followed the installation instructions and when I add <issues /> to a page I get a very long string that starts with: "@ENCODED@PHN0eWxlIHR5cGU9InRleHQvY3NzIj4NCmRpdiNpc3N1ZUZpb"

When will version 1.1 be available. I would like to have the email feature.

This is with MediaWiki 1.11.0 and PHP 5.2.5

This issue should be fixed with r63, another problem occurs if you use a version containing only one '.' like 1.13alpha. The author didn't fix that yet, but I sent him a proposal. --Osai 13:14, 11 March 2008 (UTC)
  • 11 March 2008: Encoding Issue

Hi, yes, I'm aware of this (thanks Osai) and I'm trying to implement a solution for the latest versions of MediaWiki. To fix this manually, you can update the IssueTrackerAction.php file.

File: IssueTracker/Actions/IssueTrackerAction.php
Line: 269

Change: return $this->_processOutputEncoding($output); To: return $output;

  • 11 March 2008: Encoding Issue Resolved

I've added the ParserAfterTidy hook to fix the encoding issue in MediaWiki > 1.11.2. The ParserAfterTidy hook is available from version 1.5.0.

Nice job. And it is working very well, here is a live demo, I'll probably have a closer look at the styling, maybe you could add a super class 'IssueTracker' to apply custom styles using CSS. Best Regards, Osai 23:37, 11 March 2008 (UTC)

  • 19 November 2008: Unable to add new issue

I've followed the installation instructions perfectly. However, when I click on the "add" link to insert a new issue all I get is a blank white page. I do not receive any error messages either. Is there a known fix for this? Thanks, Dave Dchou 04:12, 20 November 2008 (UTC)

Try the fix listed on Major Bug/Glitch for the blank page. --Skew 18:32, 14 November 2010 (UTC)


Great extension, I love it! Keep up the good work on it!

I would like to make a request/suggestion for a "Comments" capability on each issue. I would try to modify it myself to manage that but I'm not quite proficient enough with the code. Could this be done?

--Kethra 05:34, 28 March 2008 (UTC)

View Archived issuesEdit

Would be Nice if it is possible so see old/done issues.

Granular permissions by projectEdit

I'd like to see the IssueTracker have the capability to set permissions by project. In our case, different developer teams are responsible for different projects, and I'd like to have the ability to assign, resolve and close projects reside within the team responsible for the project. --Lhridley 13:36, 18 June 2009 (UTC)

Support for Wikitext markupEdit

Wow! wouldnt' it be great if the text box would handle content in wikitext markup? --Lhridley 13:37, 18 June 2009 (UTC)

Wiki markup support -- future enhancement?Edit

I think that the Summary filed should allow wiki formatting. --DCLXVI 19:26, 8 April 2008 (UTC)

I agree...Wiki markup would be super! --Lhridley 13:10, 18 June 2009 (UTC)

$messages['zh-tw']['invalid_id']      = '無效的議題序號';

Some askingEdit

Some things about "archived"Edit

It's seem to having some situations.

  • Once a issues be archived, it's can't be search.
  • How to change a archived issues to other status?
I agree! This IssueTracker would be far more useful if you could "unarchive" issues!

Add Mail functionEdit

It will be better if this extension can send email to a user when a issues assigned to him or something changed in the issues like Todo Tasks.:-) --Roc michael 17:10, 15 April 2008 (UTC)

This can be achieved pretty easy, do the following modifications: open Actions/IssueTrackerActionAdd.php and edit funcion addAction(), paste the following code:

    if ($_POST['bt_assignee'] != wfMsg('unassigned')) {
        $assignee = User::newFromName($_POST['bt_assignee']);
        $assignee->sendMail(wfMsg('issue_added').": ".$_POST['bt_title'],wfMsg('filehist-user')." ".$userName." ".wfMsg('has_assigned_issue').": ". $_POST['bt_title']. "\n".wfMsg('status').": " .$this->statusArray[$_POST['bt_status']]['name']. "\n".wfMsg('type').": " .$this->typeArray[$_POST['bt_type']]['name']."\n".wfMsg('summary').": ".$_POST['bt_summary']."\n\n".wfMsg('see')." http://".$_SERVER['HTTP_HOST'].$this->listUrl);

after the line

    $this->getModel('default')->addIssue($_POST, $userId, $userName);

Similarly, open Actions/IssueTrackerActionEdit.php and edit function editAction(), paste the following code:

    if ($_POST['bt_assignee'] != wfMsg('unassigned')) {
        $assignee = User::newFromName($_POST['bt_assignee']);
        $assignee->sendMail(wfMsg('issue_changed').": ".$_POST['bt_title'],wfMsg('filehist-user')." ".$userName." ".wfMsg('has_changed_issue').": ". $_POST['bt_title']. "\n".wfMsg('status').": " .$this->statusArray[$_POST['bt_status']]['name']. "\n".wfMsg('type').": " .$this->typeArray[$_POST['bt_type']]['name']."\n".wfMsg('summary').": ".$_POST['bt_summary']."\n\n".wfMsg('see')." http://".$_SERVER['HTTP_HOST'].$this->listUrl);

after the line

    $result = $this->getModel('default')->updateIssue($this->issueId, $_POST)

Finally, add the following messages into IssueTracker.i18n.php:

    $messages['en']['issue_added']      = 'New issue added';
    $messages['en']['has_assigned_issue']   = 'has assigned new issue to you';
    $messages['en']['issue_changed']        = 'Issue changed';
    $messages['en']['has_changed_issue']    = 'has changed an issue assigned to you';
    $messages['en']['see']  = 'See';

And that is, now you'll get an email once a new issue is assigned to you or changed. Milos Jakubicek 15:01, 4 August 2009 (UTC)

Add PriorityEdit

The one item missing from making this a very useful tool is the ability to set a priority. The default would be blank, but then the list should be at the very least 1 through 10. If I can I'll try to make the modifications myself to see if I can make it work and submit it for review. --cvtrig 02:24, 19 April 2008 (PST)

Has this been added?

Special Page fixEdit

Thanks for the great extension. I particularly like how your MVC framework lets you run everything on a Special Page instead of at the issue tag.

However I needed to make a few tweaks to get it to work with multiple projects ...

With these changes you can use Special:IssueTracker/<project>. There is still an issue with the i18n bits; it doesn't seem to work when the name of the special page is different from 'IssueTracker' - hence the change in the i18n file.

Just installed itEdit

On Ubuntu 8.04, and it looks great!

I recommend it to be built into Wikipedia by default. 08:26, 15 July 2008 (UTC)

Bug with multiple issue trackers on a pageEdit

I have created several pages with multiple issue trackers. It is sort of a meta tracking page. It works great, but when you add a new issue, it creates an issue every issue tracker on the page, with the exact same content, into the one issue tracker.

Supporting more than one issue tracker on a page should be a supported scenario.

Installation problemEdit

I try to install the IssueTracker extensions, after I add the "require_once $IP . '/extensions/IssueTracker/IssueTracker.php';" line to my LocalSettings.php file, I get a blank white page as my main wiki page.

I get log entries like so:

Warning: require_once(/www/Interactive/extensions/IssueTracker/Models/IssueTrackerModelDefault.php) [function.require-once]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /www/Interactive/extensions/IssueTracker/IssueTracker.body.php on line 3

Fatal error: require_once() [function.require]: Failed opening required '/www/Interactive/extensions/IssueTracker/Models/IssueTrackerModelDefault.php' (include_path='/www/Interactive:/www/Interactive/includes:/www/Interactive/languages:.:/usr/local/lib/php') in /www/Interactive/extensions/IssueTracker/IssueTracker.body.php on line 3

Any suggestions?

On the LocalSettings.php front, if you look at other extensions you'll see that that line shouldn't be copied in as it's typed here. You need to instead have

The other problem I'm having too. The issue is that /Models/IssueTrackerModeldefault.php doesn't exist in the archive you download from here.

Major Bug/GlitchEdit

I was unable to add a new issue or search for issues, it seems theres a glitch or something going on here. . the bug is already mentioned here on this talk page. Issue_Tracker vs IssueTracker

I tried to find the line in the code myself with no luck.

To fix this, edit IssueTracker.i18n.php, and change
$messages['en']['issuetracker']    = 'Issue Tracker';


$messages['en']['issuetracker']    = 'IssueTracker';

--Lhridley 12:48, 18 June 2009 (UTC)

Attachements how to?Edit

1. How can I add attachments in the edit window?,

2. If somebody post issues and then if the solver want to guide then how to do? May the solver need to edit the window and reply? Its mean issue submitter always need to check issues. is it possible to make the highlights if there is new messages in the issue then issue submitter easily know there is new message in the issue.

Version 1.1Edit

Is version 1.1 available for download. I would like to have email and attachment capabilities. Thanks

Ver 1.1Edit

How can I download version 1.1??? Please help me...

  • Yep, me too. I contacted the author, let's see if he answers. --Michaelaye 17:32, 4 November 2008 (UTC)

some stuffEdit

currently working on some improvements, wiki markup is fine for summ and header

Install errorEdit

Hi. I've just checked out the repository (at and followed the instructions in the section Installation. I restarted Apache, and create a new, empty page, with "<issues />". When saving, I get this error:

"Fatal error: Call to undefined function wfLoadExtensionMessages() in /var/lib/mediawiki1.10/extensions/IssueTracker/IssueTracker.body.php on line 39".

Any idea? Thanks, --Florent (2008-11-22T01:45:00+02:00)

-> UPDATE WIKI VERSION? i had the same error until upgrade wiki upto current version (1.13.3). It could be because of some functions or objects (for example $wgExtensionMessagesFiles) is introduced in later versions then you have ...
I think extension-info-label for IssueTracker needs to be updated too; it says that minimal version needed is "1.9.0 or greater" but here we see that it needs at least "1.11.0" (for $wgExtensionMessagesFiles). <_<

Semantic Mediawiki integration?Edit

Hi first of all very excellent extension, I was wondering if this can be integrated to SMW?

Assignee ListEdit

The drop down Assignee box does not show more than 51 users

Use different Config files for seperate Issue Tracker pagesEdit

Great extension! I'd like to be able to customize the issue types and status specific to each issue tracker that I run. Right now it gets a little confusing since I have added issue types that only pertain to one of my issue tracker pages, but those issue types are also showing up on every issue status page in my wiki.

Problem when trying to use groups to restrict permissionsEdit

Hello, first of all thanks for an excellent extension, it seems to fulfill our needs perfectly. Just having a small issue while attempting to restrict the ability of certain users to add, assign, archive etc. Ive attempted to create a separate group that will have permissions to do these things but will allow only normal logged in users to view. I dont want to use the Sysop user as per the example I have done the following as per examples create a new group in my localsettings.php file (not sure what permissions they will need to be able to create and assign tasks)

#Create the WAB group
$wgGroupPermissions['WAB' ]['edit'] = true;
$wgGroupPermissions['WAB' ]['read'] = true;
$wgGroupPermissions['WAB' ]['createpage'] = true;

and in my issuetracker.config.php

  public function setPermissions()
                $perms['list']     = array('group' => '*');
                $perms['view']     = array('group' => '*');
                $perms['add']      = array('group' => 'WAB');
                $perms['edit']     = array('group' => '*');
                $perms['archive']  = array('group' => '*');
                $perms['delete']   = array('group' => '*');
                $perms['assign']   = array('group' => 'WAB');
                $perms['assignee'] = array('group' => '*');

                $this->_permissions = $perms;

I am a member of the WAB group from the user list page

Wiltonm ‎(WAB, Bureaucrat, Sysop)

But when attempting to add or assign i get the following error You are not authorized to view this page

are there specific permissions that i need to assign the WAB group to allow, assigning and adding ???

cheers regards Mark Wilton, Case is significant, make your group all lower case Mark Wilton

Another solutionEdit

Or, if you'd prefer not to have the extension dictate your group names, go to the hasPermission function in IssueTrackerAction.php and change

if ($group == strtolower($perms[$action]['group'])) {


if ($group == $perms[$action]['group']) {

Thanks, Clif Johnston

Message error (MW 15)Edit

Is any body else receiving this error:

Special List Users ErrorEdit

After seeing mention of this error in widely varying spots i collected them all together. **29 sept 2009**

  • 20 November 2008: Unable to add new issue - UPDATE

I figured out that within IssueTrackerActionAdd.php it references the SpecialListusers.php file, which can't be found. Is the SpecialListusers.php file supposed to be included in the Issue Tracker download? Thanks, Dave Dchou 23:51, 20 November 2008 (UTC)

  • November 21, 2008 - ME TOO

found. Is the SpecialListusers.php file supposed to be included in the Issue Tracker download? Thanks, Dave Dchou  
23:51, 20 November 2008 (UTC)

I found that SpecialListusers.php is in wiki/include/specials. The path used in IssueTrackerActionAdd.php doesn't get there. you can copy SpecialListusers.php to the extensions/IssueTracker/Actions folder, or fix the pathing in IssueTrackerActionAdd.php, line 119 from

/** @see SpecialListusers **/
require_once 'SpecialListusers.php'; 

to something like

/** @see SpecialListusers **/
require_once '/includes/specials/SpecialListusers.php'; /*Fix Line, this doesn't work*/

/* remove the leading / (before includes) so the path wil be right*/

I'm a PHP newbie, so still figuring out how to make the path correct, but copying the special page into the actions folder is functional workaround. Someone tell me if you can recomend the correct PHP for the line above? --Janunson 13:31, 21 November 2008 (UTC)

  • January 06 2009

Just found one possible Solution.. But be aware, I am also a PHP noob :-) (at least it works for me)

/** @see SpecialListusers **/
require_once dirname(__FILE__) . '/../../../includes/specials/' . 'SpecialListusers' . '.php';

There is also this error in MW 15

Warning: require_once(SpecialListusers.php) [function.require-once]: 
failed to open stream: No such file or directory in 
xxxxx/xxxxx/xxxx/extensions/IssueTracker/Actions/IssueTrackerActionAdd.php on line 119

Which points to this line:

require_once 'SpecialListusers.php';

The file is simply not there. I am missing something? --iWiki 22:51, 24 July 2009 (UTC)

I'm not running 15 so can't check but I assume it's likely the same issue as shown further up the page. Try the solution offered there

Try changing that line to

require_once $IP . 'includes/specials/SpecialListusers.php';

Alternative SQL code for PostgresEdit

I modified the table creation code to work on Postgres:

 CREATE TABLE mediawiki.issue_tracker (
  issue_id serial NOT NULL,
  type varchar(5) NOT NULL default 't_bug',
  title varchar(100) NOT NULL,
  summary text NOT NULL,
  status varchar(5) NOT NULL default 's_new',
  assignee varchar(40) NOT NULL,
  user_name varchar(40) NOT NULL,
  user_id int NOT NULL,
  project_name varchar(100) NOT NULL,
  deleted int NOT NULL default '0',
  history text,
  priority_date timestamp NOT NULL default '1970-01-01 00:00:00',
  date_created timestamp NOT NULL default CURRENT_TIMESTAMP,
  PRIMARY KEY (issue_id)

Note that I removed the NOT NULL constraint from the history column, since it is currently not used by the code, and as such it would lead to fatal exceptions. Also, there is no index on the user_id column, but that could be created separately. For the time being, I just went for the absolute minimum to make it work. - Patai Gergely

Release of version 1.1Edit

What is the expected realease date of version 1.1?

A Hack Similar to Clif's to add a text field instead of a radio fieldEdit

I will format this appropriately at a later time, But here is is for now. Creating a new text field This tutorial will create a text entry field called phone number

This is similar to Clif's but instead of adding a drop down menu, you add a text box

I'll call it Chuck's Hack

Create the database entry:=Edit

ALTER TABLE issue_tracker ADD COLUMN phone_number text NOT NULL

Edit the files to have the capacity to store the extra fieldEdit

a)Open issueTracker.i18n.php and add this line

$messages['en']['field name']      = 'how you want it displayed';
$messages['en'][‘phone_number']      = 'Telephone Number';

b)Open IssueTrackerActionEdit.php and around line 47, add to list:

'bt_phone_number'  => $row->phone_number,<- don’t forget the comma at the end

There is a list of similarly formatted lines there already, and where in there you put it doesn’t matter

c) In issueTrackerModelDefault.php Add to public function addIssue($postData, $userId, $userName)

‘phone_number' => $postData['bt_phone_number'],<- don’t forget the comma at the end

Do the same in the next function which is update issue

Once again, in both functions, the order does not matter

d)In edit.html add this after the summary section, around line 29, or read the html and add it wherever you want to. You are pretty much adding a column to the row. The cols variable should be 10 but play around with the rows and tabindex to see what they do. The phone_number variable is used 4 time so make sure you replace all 4.

      <td align="left" valign="top"><strong><?php echo wfMsg(‘phone_number); ?>:</strong></td>
      <td><textarea rows="1" cols="10" tabindex="1" id="html" class="jTagEditor" accesskey="," name="bt_phone_number"><?php echo (isset($_POST['bt_phone_number’])) ? $_POST['bt_phone_number'] : ''; ?></textarea></td>

Add this in the same way to add.html e)In view.html add:

    <td width="150" align="left" valign="top" class="fieldBgColor">Phone Number</td>
    <td><?php echo $this->issue->phone_number; ?></td>

If you want it shown in the list format viewEdit

   -> when it is displayed on the web page and not just when viewing/editing the details

a)do the following in list.html

i)Around line 75 add the line below, replacing ** with the width that you want.

 <align="top" align="left" width="**"><b><?php echo wfMsg(‘phone_number’); ?></b></th>

Remember the relative position because for the next step, since you are inserting another column in the table, you want to place it in the same column in the second row which you add below.

ii)Around line 91 add the following:

<td><span class="<?php echo $issue->status; ?>"><?php echo htmlspecialchars($issue->phone_number); ?></a></span></td>

In the same relative position to where you added the first. I.e. if you add the first right before assignee, you add this one before the assignee column.

And there you go, you have another column added.

More than one issue tracker IN THE WIKI is not properly supportedEdit

It looks fine, but when you create a new issue, it is not listed as the first issue for that page. Instead it is incremented from the highest number of the last edited IssueTracker.

Not possible to add more than 93 issuesEdit

I already changed the limit at "public function getIssues($conds, $offset, $limit = 300)" in Models/IssueTrackerModelDefault.php, but I simply can not add more than 93 Issues. If I create the 94th issue, the wiki page will only display it's title (no issue list, no other wiki text). After I delete the 94th issue in the databank, everything is fine again.

Anybody met the same problem? ideas? Thanks! --- Febr. 2010

UTF-8 issueEdit

I'm using IssureTracker and can't wait for version 1.1. I have one problem. I'm using mysql and table issue_tracker with utf8_general_ci and I have problems with letters 'č', 'ć' and 'đ'. IssueTracker save this letters as '?'. My Wiki works just fine with that letters except IssueTracker. Is there any converter that I can use?

Ideas? Thanx

Having problem in adding issues. Please helpEdit

Hi, I have installed issue tracker for my mediawiki intranet. It works fine but have problem with adding new issues to tracker. When I login as Admin and double click 'View Issues' using right button in the mouse, the add issue page opens well. But, this does not happen when I am logged in as a normal user. It doesn't work even after I tried changing permissions in IssueTracker.config.php from

$perms['list']     = array('group' => '*');
$perms['view']     = array('group' => '*');
$perms['add']      = array('group' => '*');
$perms['edit']     = array('group' => '*');
$perms['archive']  = array('group' => '*');
$perms['delete']   = array('group' => '*');
$perms['assign']   = array('group' => 'sysop');
$perms['assignee'] = array('group' => 'devel');


$perms['list']     = array('group' => '*');
$perms['view']     = array('group' => '*');
$perms['add']      = array('group' => '*');
$perms['edit']     = array('group' => '*');
$perms['archive']  = array('group' => '*');
$perms['delete']   = array('group' => '*');
$perms['assign']   = array('group' => '*');
$perms['assignee'] = array('group' => '*');

I am quite new to wiki. If someone know how to fix this, please help me

Thank you, Sathish

How to completely delete an issue from the database (not archived) with link on the list.htmlEdit

I would like to know how to add link to delete completely an issue from the database by adding a link in the list.html.

Thank you,


Please fix your creditsEdit

Hi guys, could you fix them ($wgExtensionCredits) not to look scarily:

  • Define a proper URL, cause now credits are displaying just [http:// IssueTracker]
  • Escape <issues /> with <nowiki> to avoid displaying a tracker form in credits

Thanks, Max Semenik 14:50, 15 September 2010 (UTC)

User names not appearing in assignee pull-down menuEdit

I installed IssueTracker using the current builds of MediaWiki and IssueTracker as of October 6, 2010. It seems to work, however, when users are added their names do not appear in the pull-down menu for assignees. (Only my user name from when I originally installed MediaWiki). If I make a user an administrator, their name will then appear in the assignees menu - however, I do not want all assignees to be administrators...

Any suggestions?

"[add]" link not displayed if section-editing disabledEdit

The "[add]" link is with a span tag with a class of "editsection". If section editing is disabled, though, the "[add]" link does not display.

I ended up editing all pages in the Views/ directory to add style="display: block" to each span tag with a class of "editsection", since I really don't want section editing enabled.

Hi Nakohdo, I reformated the translations to match MediaWiki standard. I am not sure if this extension supports language fallback. If not 'de-formal' should be fully translated. Perhaps you test it at your wiki if my changes work. Otherwise just revert my edit. Cheers --[[kgh]] 16:14, 1 February 2011 (UTC)
Many thanks for reformatting! That was next on my to-do-list ;-) It's much easier to maintain and reuse for additional languages. I'm also working on making the rest of the extension's messages translatable - so stay tuned. --Nakohdo 10:36, 2 February 2011 (UTC)
 :) Another option would be to move this extension into MediaWiki-SVN. Thus I18N would automatically performed by users of in heaps of languages. Cheers --[[kgh]] 11:12, 2 February 2011 (UTC)
That would be great. Do you have any pointers on how to do this? tia --Nakohdo 13:56, 2 February 2011 (UTC)
That is what I have found: Commit_access Cheers --[[kgh]] 14:12, 2 February 2011 (UTC)
Thanks! --Nakohdo 18:02, 2 February 2011 (UTC)
