Title: How to use this board
Post by: emanuele on August 20, 2014, 04:18:49 pm
I knew something was missing here! :P

Why this board exists?
The main bug tracker of the project is at github (https://github.com/elkarte/Elkarte/issues), but since people may not want to register there just to report a small (or not small) bug, this board acts as a temporary replacement.

The "usual" way to handle a bug reported here should be[1]:

in an ideal world where people as lazy as me do not exist.

Aha XD

But since we are off topic....how do you do the [1] thingy? It's a pretty neat feature added to EA! :)

It's the button called "insert footnote" in the editor, right beside the img-button. You're right, it's a great feature!

Footnotes in a discussion board make no sense.

Umm why not to integrate github directly with this board...

https://developer.github.com/v3/issues/#create-an-issue

I'll write a short plugin which can help to post bugs directly on github :)

Cool idea!
It could "split" a bit the discussion (unless a scheduled/cron is added to keep the two in-synch), but indeed a cool idea!

Umm how about posting the content to github using ajax with the topic link in the content as reference.

Without posting the actual text of the bug report there?

I don't like glowing text. One of many bulletin board codes who are disabled in all my forums.

Yeyy, just woke up with some weirdness in head, and at last I was able to create an issue over to github with a standalone script.

Example
https://github.com/siddhartha-gupta/ReportOnGithub/issues

Converting this thing into mod might take some time

Lol, in reality github api doc is made me more confused as I read it. Actually using and consuming the API's are much more simpler. @emanuele can you point to some sort of guide about how to create plugins for elk

Why people always want guides and tutorials? Read the code! :P

Joking aside, there isn't much guides, just a small one on template layers at github, and... probably nothing else.
But to be honest, it's (still) not very different from SMF, so you should know (just with moar hooks and functions).
If you have any question feel free to ask! ;D
