That happens when you leave the form sorting according to column X, then in the custom view, remove column X from the display.

The code should check for this situation, and revert to ordering by the displayed column of highest priority.

I spoke too soon.

I broke my bug listing. Just clicking around on those fields, it got so if I use my custom view, the bug list just presents an error message:

Notice: Undefined index: date_op in /usr/src/savane/frontend/php/include/trackers_run/browse.php on line 684 Notice: Undefined index: date in /usr/src/savane/frontend/php/include/trackers_run/browse.php on line 685 db_query: SQL query error Unknown column 'user_submitted_by.user_name' in 'order clause' in [SELECT DISTINCT bugs.group_id,bugs.priority,bugs.privacy,bugs.status_id,bugs.submitted_by ,bugs.bug_id,bugs.summary,bugs.resolution_id,user_assigned_to.user_name AS assigned_to,bugs.date FROM bugs ,user user_assigned_to WHERE bugs.group_id='1405' AND (bugs.spamscore < '5' OR submitted_by='18884') AND bugs.status_id IN ('1') AND user_assigned_to.user_id=bugs.assigned_to ORDER BY user_submitted_by.user_name ASC LIMIT 0,100]

Hey Karl,

The "Edit Query Forms" feature does in fact do much of what I was asking for. I had never tried it, and had no idea what it did. It's not exactly obvious...

This takes care of complaints
(1)
(4)

However the issues with dates remain.

2) The format of the date fields being too long.
Either provide a way to change the formatting, or just
display it as YYYY-MM-DD.

3) It is sometimes pretty important to see which bugs have
been recently touched. There seems to be no way to get
at this information.

Thanks!

Hi Steve,

On the freefont project page, go to the bugs menu, then configure, and there are items like "select fields", which has tons of "custom" fields, and "edit query forms" to define new searches, etc. I admit I've never used them, but perhaps something in there would help? Or if you've already tried it and it is inadequate, just say so. i wasn't sure from your description.

they certainly won't cover everything in your message, but maybe some of it?

hopefully,
k

Hi,

This has bugged me for a long time, and I know it seems minor, but let's get it out.

When looking through a long list of bugs, the given columns in the bug report lists is often inadequate. As far as I know it's rigid, too.

1) It would be nice to choose which columns are displayed.

2) The date display, showing full date and time and timezone
Wed 16 Nov 2011 04:01:43 PM CET
is usually way too much information in a small screen.
A compact representation of just the date would be better
2011-11-16

3) It is often important to see which reports have been touched recently. So it would be good to have a separate column showing the date of the last change.

4) The original reporter's ID is also of interest.

Thanks!
