Redmine 1.4.x support and Turkish translation (#2068 and #2104)


#1 Updated by David Rahusen about 10 years ago


Added file “routes.rb” into the config directory of the plugin. The file needs to have the following content:

ActionController::Routing::Routes.draw do |map|
  map.connect 'admin/plugins/project_alias/:action', :controller => 'project_aliases', :conditions => {:method => [:post, :get]}

Not yet fully tested, but I guess this plugin is now fully functional for redmine version 1.4.4.

Even after adding the code listed in above update, I still get the following (with date/ip obfuscated):

Rendering /home/redmine/redmine-1.4.4/public/500.html (500 Internal Server Error)

My redmine instance is installed in a sub-directory and this happens when trying to access the admin section. /home/redmine/redmine is a link to /home/redmine/redmine-1.4.4.

I’m very impressed the redmine makers introduced the route.rb change seemingly without any care whether the majority of plugins would be ready for the switch.

#4 Updated by Spenser Gilliland almost 10 years ago

I’m running into a similar error although not exactly the same.

After installing the plugin. Access to <redmine_uri>/admin would fail with the same error as above.

After adding the routes.rb code above. Access to <redmine_uri>/admin works but creating a new alias causes the following error. Url is <redmine_uri>/admin/plugins/project_alias/new

Any suggestions for a fix?

#5 Updated by Spenser Gilliland almost 10 years ago

Worked on this a bit tonight. The following patch gets it to stop 500’ing.

This is all updates to the new.rhtml and adding routes.rb.

The first error which is mentioned above was fixed by adding routes.rb with the content specified.

The second error was that error_messages_for has been phased out and replaced with the following according to.

Thirdly, the TabularFormBuilder has moved to Redmine::Views::LabelledFormBuilder according to.

The diff is attached.

The following error is occurring and may or may not need to be fixed but as I have little rails experience I’m not really sure how to do that.
