Questions to customize TL 1.9.14 into 1.9.7 style

Post by mrommel »

Hy together,

i used TL version 1.9.7 till now.
After my boss asked me to switch to the new version i installed it on an other instance.
I cloned the database and the sources.


Now i have some points that should be changed.
While we create new test projects we used the field Notices for all new userstories.
In TL 1.9.7 it was shortened with (...) and the build was shown in one line but now every thing is displayed and the build is stretched over several lines .
-> old version e.g.:Build - New RC was assigned (...)
How can i switch back to the old style?

The second point is how to switch to the old menu style?
In TL 1.9.7 everything was written, now there are only icons.
Is there a possibility to switch back?

Regards,

Michael

it is not possible to configure menu in old style, and there are no plans to allow this. (IMHO there is no need to use old style if people is willing to learn new things)

regarding cutting build description, there is also no option to do this, need to check if there is a simple way to do this but has no priority for dev team.

1) truncate notes content on display:
this can be done ONLY when a SIMPLE TEXT AREA (and not a web rich editor) is used.
But there is ONLY config option for editor type
$tlCfg->gui->text_editor['testplan'] = array('type' => 'none', 'cols' => 80, 'rows' => 20);

but not to configure truncate.
Your option ?
1) use the config option AND create a custom template (you then configure testlink to use the custom template)

other option (that anyway requires a little bit development) is to REMOVE ALL FORMATTING from notes before displaying, then it will be possible to truncate
