• Add/Edit Project

    When adding or editing a project, you are presented with numerous options. These options are detailed below.

    • Title – the title of the project. This is how the project will be identified throughout the Project Tools. You may use HTML if you wish, though it will often be shown with HTML stripped. This is the only field you must fill out.

    • Summary – this is a one line description of the project. It is shown on the project list page and on the forum list if the project is shown (see below). HTML is allowed.

    • Description – this is a long description of the project. It will only be shown when viewing this project’s overview page. A fairly large space is dedicated to this, so you can write a fair amount. However, anyone that can see this project will be able to see the description. HTML is allowed.

    • Display Order – this controls the order in which projects are displayed. Lower numbers are displayed first. A display order of 0 will hide the project from the list, though it will still appear in the forum list (if desired) and be directly accessible if the URL is known.

    • Required Fields – the fields shown here are usually optional, but you may choose to make one or more of them required. This will prevent users from submitting issues with Unknown selected for these fields. A title and issue description must always be submitted.

    • Display After Forums – this setting allows you to show project information in the main forum list. See below for more information on this setting.

    • Title in Forum List – if you choose to use the Display After Forums option, this option allows you to override the project title and show something else in the forum list. This is helpful as the project title may not be descriptive enough without the context of other projects around it. If you leave this blank, the default title will be used, but preceded by the word Project.

    • Base Permissions off of Existing Project – this option allows you to copy the custom permissions from an existing project to this one. It is only presented if you are creating a new project. If you do not choose to use this option, you will need to create the permissions manually later.

    • Available Issue Types – you may choose which issue types are applicable to this project. A drop down for each issue type is shown, listing all issue statuses for that type. To use an issue type with this project, simply select one of those statuses. This status will be used as the default issue status ; issues created by users that don’t have permission to change the status will always start in this status.

    If you choose not to use a type, it will not be shown with a project and its permissions will not apply.
