This plugin provides an easy way to incorporate a bug/enhancement tracking system to a WordPress site. By adding a shortcode to a page, users will be able to display a bug list and allow visitors to submit new bugs / enhancements. The plugin will also provide search and sorting capabilities. A captcha and approval mechanism will allow the site admin to avoid spam.
- Download the plugin
- Upload the extracted folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
- Activate the plugin in the WordPress Admin
- To get a basic Bug Library list showing on one of your WordPress pages, create a new page and type the following text: [bug-library]
There are a number of optional arguments that can be specified with the shortcode. Here they are with examples for each:
[bug-library bugcategorylist=’3,4,5′] = List of bug categories to display
[bug-library bugtypeid=’4′] = List of bugs from a specific category
[bug-library bugstatusid=’5′] = List of bugs that have a specific status
[bug-library bugpriorityid=’6′] = List of bugs that have a specific priority
These shortcode options can be combined:
[bug-library bugcategorylist=’3,4,5′ bugtypeid=’4′ bugstatusid=’5′ bugpriorityid=’6′]
- Configure the Bug Library General Options section for more control over the plugin functionality.
- Copy the file single-bug-library-bugs.php from the bug-library plugin directory to your theme directory to display all information related to your bugs. You might have to edit this file a bit and compare it to single.php to get the proper layout to show up on your web site.
