Is there a way to list all the unfixed bugs in Askbot?

  • retag add tags

Here's a list of all the unfixed bugs in OSQA.

How do I get something similar for Askbot?

There is a way to see unsolved bugs, you can search by tag "bug" and exclude tag "fixed", and for display select "hide ignored". Those would be nearly all.

If a bug gives error 500 and 404 then I fix it the same day, right now I don't know of any such issues.

We have bugs database too -, will be using it a lot more actively soon as askbot will be my full time project starting mid-July and at least one more person will be hired. I'll post an update, there will be quite an interesting development :). You are welcome to register at the bug tracker.

Askbot has many test cases, run on every commit to the github, that's why it is more stable.

Thanks. Please explain how to exclude a tag. I spent a minute looking and couldn't find that option.

I could have explained better! On the right side there are interesting and ignored tags input boxes, so add "fixed" to the ignored list, and then select "exclude ignored" in the display tag filter section just below.

Got it, thanks. I think the searching and browsing should automatically reflect the interesting and excluded tags (there should be an additional message below the search box that the results are filtered). If I add something to excluded tags, I expect it to go away -- why do I have to contemplate a three-way radio button? Don't Make Me Think :)

yes, but it is not clear what to do when a question has both interesting and ignored tags...
Evgeny's avatar Evgeny (2011-06-18 17:41:57 -0500) edit
In that case, don't show the question. If I type "aa -bb" into Google and a page contains both "aa" and "bb", it will not be in the search results. Actually, Evgeny, I think I should be able to type "[bugs] -[fixed]" in the search box. I shouldn't have to mess with my interesting/excluded tags to do a query -- what if I have a carefully composed list of 14 excluded tags? Am I supposed to reconstruct it later? (On second thought, I think the search should ignore interesting/excluded tags - when I'm searching, I usually want to get the most complete results possible.)

There's a redmine bug tracker for askbot here:

Seems to be active.

Almost all bugs are listed there, remaning unfixed bugs are recorded on this forum. Redmine seems to be one of the best options, maybe jira is better, but looks complicated.
