Summary0000223: Upgrade Bugtracker to Version 2
DescriptionVersion 2.0 of Mantis is out - need to upgrade to it.

This is a ticket for me to just track work.

DB Schema is the same so upgrading on BETA will not affect live work.

Two core bits of functionality which we use to wrap Mantis BT into Canalplan have been removed from Mantis BT version 2.0. This means that we can't put the left hand menu onto the Mantis pages.

That's a shame. Is there a reason for it?

Could we just use an iframe? A static or dynamic CanalPlan page with an iframe to contain Mantis. It would all be from the same site so none of the same origin stuff should cause problems?

It also means that future updates are easier as there's no special configuration.

We'd lose the styling (although we could write some easy JavaScript to change - again, SOP should allow that).

Do you want to mock it up, and I'll change the generation code once we know what it should look like?

We can do CSS as it supports that, I think all we'll need is a full empty page with a iframe in it where we have the main content DIV.

I'll try it in Beta this weekend...

It would also fix

Suspect we can't do it as the urls call lots of different files so I'd have to create a whole set of aliases to turn calls to those pages into calls to my wrapper page which pass the original page name and parameters.

I suspect it could be done with one clever regexp in the aliases.

Or if too troublesome, if we can style it we may have to just do that and lose the menu. We could make sure all links to bugs open in a new window to reduce the damage.

But don't links inside an iframe open inside the frame anyway?

Without the framing this is what the new version looks like:

Links in an iframe open in the parent window unless you give the iframe a name and add that as a target to all the links.

There seems to be no movement from Mantis on putting this functionality back in although people have pointed out that it stops you doing exactly what we've done and it something that businesses use.

So maybe opening in a new window is the best option. I've changed the logout button to "Return to Canalplan" and stopped it actually logging out (which trashes the cookie).

And the auto close plugin doesn't work - so I've got to fix that too as the developer isn't supporting it any more.

Auto close plugin is just about working ... needs some reworking to fit in with the new style.

The problem with the header and footer includes seems to be slated for the 2.2 release (They've already released 2.1)

Has been pushed back as they've still not fixed the site integration issue
