Summary0000322: MantisBT: Text Formatting Help
DescriptionHi Sam,
for some time now, I've been trying to uncover the secrets of text formatting that MantisBT supports from the user's point of view. Some things work, otherwise not because the formatting depends on the plugins used and only the admin knows which ones are enabled. If you have the time and the desire I would be pleased about a small formatting help. It doesn't have to be complete, it just has to contain the usual (text markup like bold and italic, simple lists, source code blocks, internal links etc.). TIA!

Hopefully in the future, a better working Mantis BT plugin will become available!

I tried the extended editor plugin BBCodePlus. This plugin is not developed by MantisBT developers. Unfortunately this plugin causes too many errors. The editor plugin has made MantisBT unusable. I deleted the plugin again. I also disabled standard markdown processing, it does seem a bit confusing for common users. If the majority of users do want it, I can reactivate it.

Switch it off because it ruins the usual text formatting. For something like that you need people who are familiar with it and don't just do it in their spare time.

DokuWiki supports **bold**, //italic//, __underlined__ and ''monospaced'' texts.
Of course you can **__//''combine''//__** all these.

You can use <sub>subscript</sub> and <sup>superscript</sup>, too.

You can mark something as <del>deleted</del> as well.

This is some text with some linebreaks\\ Note that the
two backslashes are only recognized at the end of a line\\
or followed by\\ a whitespace \\this happens without it.

DokuWiki supports multiple ways of creating links. External links are recognized
automagically: or simply - You can set
Linknames, too: [[|This Link points to google]]. Email
addresses like this one: <[email protected]> are recognized, too.

Internal links are created by using square brackets. You can either just give
a [[pagename]] or use an additional [[pagename|Title Text]]. Wiki pagenames
are converted to lowercase automatically, special chars are not allowed.

You can add footnotes ((This is a footnote)) by using double parentheses.

==== Headline Level 3 ====
=== Headline Level 4 ===
== Headline Level 5 ==

  * This is a list
  * The second item
    * You may have different levels
  * Another item

  - The same list but ordered
  - Another item
    - Just use indention for deeper levels
  - That's it

*Leading zeros at bug number and note can be omitted, this is meant by short.

- Direct link to bug number: # + BugNumber, example 0000322 or short 0000322
- Direct link to note: ~ + CommentNumber, example 0000322:0002267 or 0000322:0002267
- Quote using > at the beginning of the line, example
> "I'll see if I can install this plugin until tomorrow."

where the quote should be followed by a blank line.
- Unsorted lists using - at the beginning of the line.

This option is enabled, but the bug tracker is always causing problems. In the meantime, I found a plugin that significantly enhances the editor. I'll see if I can install this plugin until tomorrow.
