We've been using a bug tracker since late August 2006.  Since that time I've been wanting to open it up for the public to view but it has been one of those things that kept getting pushed to the side.  Well I'm pleased to tell you that the work is done and the doors have been flung open.

Bug Tracker Link

This tracker is view-only for the public.  Only our beta testers, team members, and a couple of special security reporters can post to the tracker.  This is so that the devs and the others who are working on resolving the issue don't have to take the time figuring out which bugs are legitimate and which ones aren't.

If you find a bug then please post about it in the Bug Reports board.  Once it has been verified then someone will post it to the tracker and post a link to the bug report in your topic.  Now since we believe in being as lazy efficient as possible I setup a wiki style link for them.  You can type [[bug:##]] and it will link to that bug (ie: [[bug:1]] gives Bug #1: Buddy list field is tinytext)

Now the bug tracker actually isn't just for bugs.  We also use it for features also.  Once a feature has been agreed upon it'll be added to the tracker so that we don't forget about it.

Currently we have all public members sharing an anonymous account.  As such there is no way to setup notification on a topic.

Members will have access to the projects that they can download.  So before the 2.0 public beta release charter members would have had access to 2.0 while the public would not.  Now that 2.0 is public everyone has access to the 2.0 bug tracker project.

Two things:

I can't filter by category: SMF 2.0. Is this SMF DE or a hidden category for the public filters?

Would it be possible to reset the filters for guests every x time? I don't mind sharing access accounts, but I don't want to have to check the filters every time I go there to make sure it's not filtering a specific category or user.

Otherwise, fantastic job. I've been waiting for the Bug Tracker to become public so that I could see some of the work. Awesome.

The SMF DE is for the converters section. It was never updated to say SMF 2.0..

You can always create a permalink for the filter and use it when you need to.

Won't work. Would be nice to have a filter for 2.0 issues.

Note, for anyone else attempting to link to a bug on the tracker.
It does not work via Quick Edit It only works via full reply or Modify (and not via Quick Edit, nor Quick Reply).

Thx Sleepy, otherwise I would still have been attempting to post a link.
Hopefully it saves you aswell.

Edit: Fixed (thx Thantos)

Bug #5: Quote post or preview post causes Javascript error (RC3)

Quick Reply works fine.  Quick Edit does not and that is known.

Thantos: What would you say to unrestricting the top menu's bugtracker link to make it public?  Just a random thought :)

Still getting the same error.

//Maybe that's because of my username. It's Bab-ı Esrar.

No. It doesn't. When I try to log in, it gives the same error. I guess it is because of the space character in my username. Some systems do not support space in usernames, such as PHP-Nuke.

Can I get you to try again.  I have the error logging going so hopefully I'll be able to see what is happening.  Thanks
