Register

Register yourself with Personal Details

You can browse and search the issue tracker anonymously, but you must register and sign in to SourceForge before you can create a new issue, update an existing issue, add a comment, or attach a file.

After you have submitted the registration form, you will receive an email with instructions for activating your account and signing in.

Note: Any information you submit to the issue tracker is subject to our privacy policy.

Create a new issue

Create a new ticket

If you have registered and signed in to the issue tracker, you can create a new ticket. Instructions are available for:




Update an existing issue

Update an existing issue with Comment or adding a file

If you have registered and signed in to SourceForge, you can update (i.e. edit) an existing ticket. Updating the ticket allows you to add a comment, attach a file, and/or change the ticket's properties (status, priority, category, etc.). You can even add a comment, attach a file, and change ticket properties at the same time.

To begin updating a ticket, navigate to that tickets's page, then click on the "Edit" link (with the pencil icon) at the top of the page.

Note: If you don't see the "Edit" link, make sure you are signed in to SourceForge.

Add a comment

If you have not done so already, click the "Update" link as described above. Then, enter some text in the "Notes" area. The issue tracker uses Markdown for text formatting (bold, italics, links, etc.). You can check how your text will be displayed by clicking on the "Preview" link at the bottom of the page.

When you are ready, press the "Submit" button at the bottom of the page to add your comment.

Attach a file

Add a File to a comment and Change basic issue properties

If you have not done so already, click the "Update" link as described above. Then, use the file chooser button at the bottom of the pages to choose the file on your computer you wish to attach. After you have chosen the file, you can enter an optional description of the file in the box on the right. If you want to attach multiple files at the same time, click the "Add another file" link.

You may wish to add a comment in the "Notes" area, giving more information about why you are attaching the file(s). See the "Add a comment" section, above.

When you are ready to attach the file(s), press the "Submit" button at the bottom of the page to complete the process.

Change issue properties

Change the content of the original report via the More link

If you have not done so already, click the "Update" link as described above. You can then enter new values for various issue properties, such as Status, Priority, Category, etc. To change the Tracker, Subject, Parent Task, or Description, click the Change properties (More) link. Please see the Reporting a bug and Proposing a feature pages for more information about what each property means. Depending on the issue tracker permissions and workflow, you may be unable to change certain properties.

You may wish to add a comment in the "Notes" area, giving more information about why you are changing the issue properties. See the "Add a comment" section, above.

When you are ready, press the "Submit" button at the bottom of the page to save the changes.
