Project settings form differs from screenshot in Wiki

External issue:


I installed revision 16 of the plugin, which should correspond to version 0.0.2. The project settings form looks however different. Instead of the dropdown box where you can select a File or an External URL, I only have an edit box for an external URL. Once such URL is entered, it cannot be removed again b/c the value may not be blank.

Oh... That’s because you don’t have a closed version in your project, right? Create a closed version (or close) and you will be able to change to “Automatic” (I believe, you may also need a file). Also you can just disable button!

#2 Updated by Andreas Schuh about 11 years ago

I just closed a version and added a file for it, still, when I re-enable the button I cannot select Automatic nor the file.

I cleared the external URL manually by editing the entry in the download_buttons table.

#3 Updated by Andriy Lesyuk about 11 years ago

You can’t because dropdown is not shown?

#4 Updated by Andreas Schuh about 11 years ago

Strange. I had in fact two versions, the first one was closed already, but without any file (I am just playing with Redmine). After I deleted this closed version, the download button settings are all fine and I can select Automatic or a specific file.

Just to test, I added a new version again which I closed immediately. The same behavior! I think it’s not good that a closed version without file brakes the download button.

#5 Updated by Andriy Lesyuk about 11 years ago

You see: The form is shown to let users specify external URL! So in case when a user wants to remove the “Download” button he/she have to disable the button! This is how it works now.

If I let remove “External URL” this will mean that in this case (when “External URL” is empty) the “Download” button should be disabled! Not a very clear behaviour...

What do you think?
