Description Aleksey Nogin 1999-11-19 23:43:47 UTC
When entering some text into text fields such as "Description" field in enter_bug.cgi or "Additional Comments" in show_bug.cgi, it would be nice to know what is the expected entry format - is it supposed to be plain text or whether any HTML tags are allowed.
Comment 1 David Lawrence 1999-11-21 08:53:59 UTC
Really doesnt matter since the bugzilla system renders the description using the <PRE> </PRE> tags therefore anything is valid text. I attempted it with various tags and other special characters and everything was printed as entered properly. I am putting together a more detailed help screen to help explain how to properly enter a bug report and I will include this information.
Comment 2 Aleksey Nogin 1999-11-21 17:04:59 UTC
This is not that simple. Take a look at <A HREF="http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=7079">bug #7079</A>. It has two "A HREF" tags that show as links (at least in Netscape 4.7)...
Comment 3 Aleksey Nogin 1999-11-21 17:08:59 UTC
Oh, ok... Does this mean that when I write something like " bug #7079 ", bugzilla inserts a link for me? If would be nice to have all these features documented...
Comment 4 David Lawrence 1999-11-21 17:17:59 UTC
Yes, and I will definitely be adding that into the documentation also.
Comment 5 Aleksey Nogin 2000-01-03 21:21:59 UTC
I still do not see any documentation that describes these things. Also, enter_bug.cgi gives links to bug_status.html that no longer exists...
Comment 6 David Lawrence 2000-01-24 19:28:59 UTC
Sorry for the delay regarding this addition. I have added some documentation to the enter_bug.cgi and show_bug.cgi scripts. Please let me know if they coule be worded better. Also bug_status.html has been fixed.
Comment 7 Aleksey Nogin 2000-01-24 19:52:59 UTC
Is it true that numbers would be conmverted to bug hyperlinks? Let me try: 11, and another: #11, and yet another: bug #11. Also, all http://... is also converted to hyperlinks. Also, all conversions take place only when items are displayed (as opposed to being sent in the Bugzilla notification e-mail).
Comment 8 Aleksey Nogin 2000-01-24 19:53:59 UTC
As you see, on;y "bug #xyz" is converted to hyperlink, no just #xyz
Comment 9 David Lawrence 2000-01-24 20:32:59 UTC
Ok, i have again corrected the documentation. It is now included in the other help documentation accessible by clicking on the 'Additional Comments' field header. Thanks for helping on this matter.
Comment 10 Aleksey Nogin 2000-01-24 21:08:59 UTC
Comment 11 Aleksey Nogin 2000-01-24 21:09:59 UTC
Oh, OK, I didn't know that
Comment 12 Aleksey Nogin 2000-12-14 00:25:37 UTC
I would say that this problem is mostly fixed, with the only exception - while show_bug.cgi gives a correct link for the "Additional Comments" field, enter_bug.cgi does not have that link for the "Description" field. It should.
Comment 13 Aleksey Nogin 2002-12-13 14:32:13 UTC

Comment 14 David Lawrence 2002-12-13 22:58:37 UTC
Additional comments link is back now. Reopen this if any more problems found.
Comment 15 Aleksey Nogin 2002-12-14 00:04:41 UTC
The problem mentioned in comment 12 is still there - there is no link on the "Description" in the enter_bug.cgi.
Comment 16 David Lawrence 2002-12-14 02:42:05 UTC
Sorry, really tired and didnt parse the problem properly. The addition comments on this page and the description field on the enter_bug page should both be linked properly.
