I found it a bit baffling that this functionality was not built in, but from an archival perspective, it makes sense. If you need it for your project, there’s an easy workaround:
Extensionsdirectory, copy the
EditCommentsdirectory over to your installation’s
./checksetup.plto build the necessary tables and extra columns and other magical things.
template/en/default/bug/comments.html.tmpl, add the following line to your
[% Hook.process(‘a_comment-end’, ‘bug/comments.html.tmpl’) %]. This provides a link to turn on editing for that field.
Since I don’t have memcaching enabled [yet!], I commented out line 229 from
extensions/EditComments/Extension.pm. Once I get that memcache going, though, that pound sign is coming right out.
I hope this helps. It took me a while to put this all together, since the information is rather dispersed.
Happy bug tracking!
